‘The Goddess of Soul' and James Brown’s longest serving female vocalist, the fantastic Martha High brings the funky good times with special‘The Goddess of Soul' and James Brown’s longest serving female vocalist, the fantastic Martha High explores her musical heritage and ongoing journey as she brings the funky good times to Hideaway and is joined on stage by the “Godfather of Neo Soul”, Omar!
Martha High sang on stage with James Brown for 30 years and still regularly tours the world as lead singer for Maceo Parker’s band, another longtime acolyte of the Godfather of Soul.
High's credentials as one of Brown's most trusted allies, and as part of his historic contribution to the history of soul music are unquestionable. She was with him and the JBs at their celebrated concert at the Boston Garden in April 1968 on the night after Martin Luther King's assassination, when Brown prevented further rioting with his sheer stage presence and positive message.
Martha was also by JB's side at such famous occasions as his courageous trip to Vietnam to entertain the American troops, and at the 'Rumble In The Jungle' concert in Zaire, attended by 60,000 people, ahead of the George Foreman/Muhammad Ali fight of the same name in Kinshasa.
Further confirmation that High remains a formidable musical force came with the release of her solo album ‘Singing For The Good Times’ (Blind Faith Records) that was released in Spring 2016 to critical acclaim.
