British singer Mika is bringing it back Stateside in a return tour although more acoustic and intimate than past sold out shows. The artist who released his third album The Origin of Love last year has continually stepped up his game with his impressive vocal range while selling 8.5 million records in the process. This has developed into a large catalogue of work over the years with songs such as “We Are Golden” and “Grace Kelly.”
His lead off single and collaboration with Pharrell Williams “Celebrate” was a highlight from his latest album. He then went Broadway using music inspired by the musical Wicked for “Popular Song” featuring Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande. The composer Stephen Schwartz was so moved by his rendition that it’s the only time he’s authorized its usage.
Mika takes on bullying, Twitter, and The Brady Bunch in this exclusive interview.
