Jesus May Ball Committee announce that LAURA MVULA will be the Special Headliner for the 2017 literary themed event.

Her Debut Album, Sing to the Moon was launched in March of 2013 and won the Singer-Songwriter Best Female act at the MOBO and Urban Music awards in the same year.

Last year Laura’s second album, The Dreaming Room, was released. Universally acclaimed by music critics, earlier this month, it went on to win the Ivor Novello Album Award.

The mix of soul and orchestral tones is sure to be a crowd pleaser on the night and fill the main stage which is due to host a series of fantastic performers yet to be announced.

Jesus May Ball Presidents, Daniel Patton and Elle Prince are overjoyed with securing such an incredible artist. “We are absolutely delighted to reveal this year’s headliner. Laura was somebody that we were interested in from the get go. Daniel went to see her at the Corn Exchange in Michaelmas and we were set from there, it’s been very tricky keeping it a secret from everyone all this time - we’ve had our Spotify accounts on private mode quite a lot!”

Jesus May Ball is known for its excellent music ents, previously hosting the likes of Jack Garrat (2016) and Scouting for Girls (2014). This is definitely not a May Ball to miss. Tickets are sold out but look out for any on the grapevine.
