Jordan Gray, star of the hit TV show The Voice, will perform in her first show in Edinburgh on Saturday 2nd July.

She will be entertaining guests at the very first ‘#ThisIsMe Rooftop Garden Party’, which will take place in the stunning rooftop garden at The Glasshouse 5* Hotel. the event is organised by Inclusive Networks, which aims to share and celebrate the work of authentic and inspiring community role models, charities and community groups.

The afternoon will include a special exclusive 30 minute performance by Jordan. As part of Paloma Faith’s team on The Voice, Jordan wowed millions of viewers with renditions of popular songs including Kate Bush’s ‘This Woman’s Work’ and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing In The Dark’. Jordan will have her photo taken with guests, who will also receive a special limited edition signed Jordan print – produced for and exclusive to the event.

Speaking about the event, Jordan said: “I couldn’t be happier to finally be playing Edinburgh. Since my mother and I moved to Scotland I’ve been dying to get out amongst the people and give them a part of me. The best part of me – the music. I feel like Scotland inspires something special in me. I look forward to seeing you at the #ThisIsMe event at The Glasshouse on 2nd July.”

The celebration of diversity, will feature other live music and entertainment throughout the afternoon. Rebecca Vasmant (international DJ) will be on the decks, Edinburgh based artist Mark Vice will be exhibiting some of his work, and other creative pop-ups will ensure plenty of surprises to make sure it’s an afternoon to remember.

Thomas Anderson, Founder of Inclusive Networks, said : “Inclusive Networks had a fantastic first year in 2015 and I’m very excited to see this develop with our new #ThisIsMe celebration events that will take place around the UK. The ‘#ThisIsMe Rooftop Garden Party’ will be an annual event and it’s sure to be the hottest ticket in Edinburgh that day. We have a diverse lineup of awesome entertainment planned and lots of fantastic supporting partners who are showing their commitment to diversity and inclusion in the heart of Scotland’s capital city.”
