Drawing: Ruby Turner

Ruby Turner001

The Jamaican born R&B and soul singer, songwriter and actress Ruby Turner left her Montego Bay home at the age of 9 and moved to England.

In February 1990 she achieved a rare feat for a British singer, reaching the number one spot on the US R&B charts with “It’s Gonna Be Alright”

Her most recent theatre appearance was the hugely successful run in London’s West End production of Simply Heavenly. The musical won several awards and was nominated for the Outstanding Musical at the 2005 Olivier Awards. She has also made numerous TV appearances, including the BBC drama Hotel Babylon in 2009.

I sent my sketch to Ruby at the Auckland Town Hall in New Zealand in March 1995, it was returned signed.
