Ruby Turner and her band play live and talk about her latest album, I'm Travelling On, featuring her favourite gospel songs.

Ruby Turner and her band perform an acoustic after midnight session this week.

Ruby's new album 'I'm Travelling On' is a set of interpretations of her favourite gospel songs, first recorded by such legends as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Brother Joe May, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, The Swan Silvertones and Mahalia Jackson.

Ruby's career embraces decades of experience on all kinds of stages and screens. Born in Jamaica, she moved to the UK when she was nine, and her track record includes seven hit singles, three chart albums and a prestigious US R&B No.1, 'It's Gonna Be Alright.' She's starred in the theatre, on TV and appeared on the big screen in 'Love, Actually,' and guested on the track 'Happy Man,' from Seasick Steve's gold-certified album 'I Started Out With Nothin' and I Still Got Most Of It Left.'

Ruby's role as a regular featured vocalist in Jools Holland's widely-loved Rhythm & Blues Orchestra has confirmed her place as one of the UK's most recognisable singers.
