Verdict: Four stars. 

Singer Beverley Knight knows how to make an entrance.

For the star was a ball of energy from the moment she stepped on the Armadillo stage on Thursday night where she quickly demanded, “Glasgow! Get on your feet.”

A request she only had to ask once as her fans quickly leaped up for Greatest Day.

Glasgow Times:

Looking incredible in a black and white fitted jumpsuit, she then teased, “We came to have fun tonight!”

And that was a promise she delivered on as she performed the best of her back catalogue of hits alongside newer songs from latest release The Fifth Chapter.

Her voice powerful, soulful and impressive throughout as she delighted with hits Made It Back, Shoulda Woulda Coulda and Keep This Fire Burning.

The Wolverhampton native then flattered: “You guys have the most gorgeous accent,” before a pitch perfect rendition of Gold.

Glasgow Times:

Beverley is likeable, the sort of artist you root for because aside from being down to heart, she has an immeasurable talent as a singer-songwriter with a voice that is a true rarity.

Fallen Soldier written in tribute to murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence proved to be a poignant moment while the upbeat I’m on Fire showcased the prowess in the 50-year-old’s voice beautifully.

Ending on a high, she covered Chaka Khan’s I’m Every Woman and Prince’s I Wanna Be Your Lover sending the crowd wild before she said with a smile, "I'll never ever ever forget that."
