The British singer-songwriter Freya Ridings does not only catch the eye immediately because of her red mane - also her wonderful smoky and emotional voice hits everyone right in the heart! It's not for nothing that the young singer became a world star almost overnight with her song "Lost Without You" two years ago and went straight platinum with the ballad. Since then a lot has changed for the British singer with the exceptional voice: She tours around the world, inspires her fans with her honest lyrics and released her first studio album last year. With her attendance at the renowned Brit School Performing Arts, she joins an illustrious group of world-famous new pop acts such as Katie Melua, Amy Winehouse or Jessie J, who learned and refined their musical craft there. And Ridings' current top hit "Castles" proves once again the strength and warmth of her impressive voice. That's why we feel particularly honoured that, in the Musikmesse's anniversary year - which will celebrate its 40th birthday in 2020 - she will delight us at the Musikmesse Festival's crowning final concert. We say: Thank you and welcome to Frankfurt, Freya!
