London-born, Caribbean-raised and American-influenced singer Beverly Savarin is coming to Dagenham’s Mecca Bingo on Valentine’s Day.

The former X-Factor contestant will be going by the name of Just Whitney for the night as she will be covering the most awarded female act of all time, Whitney Houston, at the Ripple Road bingo hall.

Beverly said: “It’s truly an honour to return to Mecca Bingo. I performed at another location, in Wood Green and was very kindly welcomed. I look forward to meeting some new people, and hopefully getting them singing along.”

The young artist already has jazz, opera, pop, R&B, soul and even rap under her belt.

After making it big on the American stages of the Apollo Theatre, Newark Symphony Hall, Chaz and Wilson’s and BB King’s she released Beverly the Album.

She went on to stay in the Billboard charts for 14 weeks with Never Felt This Way.

Beverly will be performing Whitney classics like I Will Always Love You, My Love is Your Love, Saving All My Love For You and more on the night.

Beverly told the Post: “It was my agent who suggested I do a tribute to her as it was already in my repertoire. I must confess I was hesitant to do so!

“But I’ve always admired and acknowledged Whitney Houston as a superb vocalist and artist, and have performed her songs for many years.”

Seats are £5, or £10 for VIP tickets – which include front section seating, a meal and a drink.
