Mica Paris - I Wanna Hold On To You 1993

4th & Broadway Records BRCD 275

Michelle Wallen is one of UK soul's finest talents ever since she burst onto the scene with her international hit My One Temptation. She started singing in church when she was seven years old. Paris changed her name from Michelle to Micha at age 16 and later dropped the h and has been known as Mica Paris ever since.

I Wanna Hold On To You is a wonderful piece of soul written by Mica, Narada Michael Walden and Sally Jo Dakota. Walden also produced and arranged the song for her Whisper A Prayer album. On this release, Absolute takes it to the floor on the Radio Mix (gotta be a longer Absolute Mix out there?) while the Old School Mix by Steve and Paul Jervier (a.k.a. The Outfit) takes the song into contemporary territory. For me though, as with many of Mica releases, this is all about the bonus track. Say You Will is a slow burning, solid soul shuffler that utilises her deep rich sensuous voice to the max. Now that's what I'm talking about!
