Heart and Soul of Al Qasr

Their genre is not what I typically patronize, but having since long read good reviews of Heart and Soul in particular, I popped into Koubba Bar in Madinat Jumeirah's Al Qasr hotel late on Thursday night to have a listen.

Shanice Michaels does indeed have a pleasant and versatile voice, and included a fair bit of improvisation to add some individuality to the songs she sang. She and Lorendo Brown mainly did covers of popular music to playback instrumentals and sharp guitar playing by Brown. I was not too fond of the dance pop covers (maybe downbeat them a little?), but the rest was a great musical journey through the pop hits, especially the ones from the late 20th century.
