In anticipation of the St. Royals Review which touches down at Lula Lounge on Sunday, November 27th, we asked St. Royals member, the ever so talented Leah Canali, to tell us her favourite five songs, covered by this band that has earned the title "Toronto’s kings and queens of Motown and soul." Here's what she told us....
1. Kiss by Prince
We do a great live arrangement of this classic Prince song that heavily features our horn players and an awesome groove right off the top.
2. I Want You Back by The Jackson 5
This song never fails to get people on the dance floor! It's such a classic and is a great feature for the multiple vocalists that each of our band line ups have.
3. Tightrope by Janelle Monae
We have an great arrangement of this song from her live performance on Live with Letterman. It's incredibly funky, modern but sound vintage and has an amazing ending that showcases our powerhouse leader vocalists.
4. Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
The quintessential sing along song! We actually do a really nice combo version that highlights the original song and the iconic Diana Ross ending!
5. Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake
This is off of our modern rep list and was arguable the "song on the summer" this year! It is super upbeat and fun to sing along to. The ending always gets everyone in the crowd singing with us!
