Joscelyn Eve Stoker, better known by her stage name Joss Stone, is an English singer, songwriter and actress. Stone rose to fame in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions, which made the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist.
Joss Stone has been obsessed with soul music since she was a little girl. She made her arrival on the world stage with her sophomore album, Mind Body & Soul in 2004. Her critically acclaimed album earned Stone three Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist. It also spawned a self-penned UK Top 10 single, “You Had Me”, and earned her Two Brit Awards that same year. With over 12 million album sales to date and a wealth of experience under her belt, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Closing the second day of the Singapore International Jazz Festival 2016, as it is also known, the soul queen bounded on stage at 10pm, fresh as a daisy.
Wearing a wide grin and togged out in a spaghetti strap dress, the barefooted Stone immediately got to work, keeping the 3,000-strong crowd entertained throughout her one-hour set.
There was no argument with her singing – Stone hit all the high and low notes effortlessly across genres and even ad-libbed in tune.
She kept long-time fans happy by singing older hits such as Fell In Love With A Boy, the retitled 2002 hit from rock duo The White Stripes; Super Duper Love (Are You Digging On Me?), a cover song from her 2003 album, The Soul Sessions; and her mash-up of Tell Me What We’re Gonna Do Now with Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley’s hit Turn Your Lights Down Low.
