Michael Ball, the British representative in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest, is going to release his new album One voice on 30th October. The CD features eleven cover versions of songs that are said to be the singer's all time favourites.
One voice follows the very succesful album Music on which he covered songs fromartists as disperate as Queen, Sting and The Eagles. His new album might be called a quite eclectic selection too: Michael Ball covers not only strong rock ballads like Aerosmith's I don't wanna miss a thing but also romantic pop ballads like Hero, a song that was recorded by Mariah Carey in 1993. You can read about Michael Ball's very own thoughts on the songs on his official website here. There you can also find some sound and video files concerning One voice.
On Monday, 30th October, Michael Ball will appear on GMTV. You can read more here.
