Lemar is set to swap his ice skates for headphones, with the news that he will host his own radio show on Magic Soul.
Launching on the 10th March, ‘Magic Soul Classics with Lemar’ will be on every Saturday and Sunday from 8-10am on Magic Radio’s sister digital station, Magic Soul. Get set as the BRIT and MOBO award-winner, who took part in the new series of Dancing on Ice, will be playing Classic Soul tracks from Aretha to Isaac Hayes and Stevie Wonder to Diana Ross.
Among the most successful male British solo artists of the last decade, with seven UK Top 10 singles and two million albums sold worldwide, Lemar is already a household name. With one of the finest and most recognisable British Soul voices of his generation, over the years Lemar has shared the stage with the likes of Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Mary J Blige, George Benson, and Justin Timberlake.
Lemar joins Magic Soul after co-hosting the hugely successful inaugural Magic Soul Live at the London Palladium last month. His last album, ‘The Letter’ was his personal homage to soul, recorded at the legendary East West Studios with producer Larry Klein. Now Lemar will be able to bring his love of the genre to audiences across the nation every weekend.
On top of his radio duties, Lemar will continue with his own music, with his eighth studio album due for release later this year. Magic Soul is part of the Magic Radio Network, which reaches a total of 3.9 million people. The station, which plays the best in Soul and Motown, is available on DAB Digital Radio, online and via mobile app.
