Lee has been a George Michael tribute since 1990 recreating both the sound and imagery with uncanny accuracy. He began singing professionally in 1991 but was in semi-professional bands much earlier.
In 1990 Lee formed the Queen tribute band ‘The Royal Family’ where he remained as the frontman for six years. He eventually left the band to embark on other musical projects, feeling he was becoming pigeon holed simply as a Freddie Mercury tribute.
Then, when George Michael outshone every other artist on the bill of the Freddie Mercury tribute concert in Wembley stadium, it was soon clear that George’s passion for Queen music and, having a similar vocal range as Freddie, impersonating George seemed to be the next step in Lee’s repertoire and was well within his prodigious talent.
Lee is a natural impersonator, but after much practice and study of George Michael’s performances, Lee was on the road with his George Michael tribute. Gradually this act took president and the Freddie show once again took the back seat.
We would like to welcome to the Kings and Queens cast Nikki Bell as the one and only Whitney Houston!

She delivers an outstanding performance, that will have you singing and dancing along to her chart topping hits such as ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ and the original soundtrack from the movie ‘The Bodyguard’- ‘Queen of the Night’ - filling the room with her energy and passion, as she effortlessly portrays one of the world’s most dynamic and incredible singers of our lifetime.
