Mica Paris (born Michelle Wallen, 27 April 1969, South London) is an English soul singer, radio and television presenter, and occasional actress. Her roots are in soul and gospel music. She grew up singing in her grandparents' church and by her mid teens was making regular appearances with 'The Spirit of Watts' gospel choir (with whom she featured on the 1985 EP Gospel Joy). Mica was soon noticed as a distinctive voice and at seventeen got her first break as a backing vocalist with the UK chart band Hollywood Beyond. Mica appeared on their album, If (1985).
