The concert has a special significance for the star: Brightman serves as godmother of Encore and presided over a glittering ceremony for the launch of the Seabourn’s fourth ship in 2016.

Revered for her three-octave vocal range, Brightman – who is also a UNESCO Artist for Peace Ambassador – has amassed over 30 million sales during her musical career and received numerous accolades in more than 40 countries.

The Hertfordshire native began her career at the age of 16 when she became a member of dance troupe Pan’s People. She then joined dance group Hot Gossip before releasing several solo disco singles.
