The Robin 2 proudly presents top UK soul singer:
After 20 years performing on stage alongside Soul Legends such as Martha Reeves, Sister Sledge, Eddie Holman, George McCrae, Alexander O'Neal and many more, in 2015 Diane Shaw finally took her turn in the spotlight and delivered her own debut album, encompassing everything she has learned from the masters, keeping that old school soul sound alive and delivering it to a new generation.
