If you’re a fan of Adele, Kylie Minogue or Hozier, there’s a good chance you’ve heard Lurine Cato sing, even if you didn’t know it. She was one of the backing vocalists on Adele’s 2008 album 19, she performed on Hozier’s Nina Cried Power EP, and spent two years touring the world singing back-ups with Kylie.
But Lurine is also an award-winning Gospel artist in her own right, often using her talents for charitable work and to raise awareness around issues such as sickle cell disease, as well as performing in prisons. In 2020 Lurine was recognised for her efforts with an MBE – Member of the British Empire – for services to charity and music.
Lurine has been through many highs and terrible lows on her path to this point, battling depression and physical and sexual abuse, but persevering throughout with the help of music and her faith.
We talk about it all in this interview.
