Whatever Happened To… M People?

One Night in Heaven – M People (1994)
This British music group rode the wave of house music in the 90’s, landing four of their five studio albums in the UK Top 5. In the US, they scored four #1 hits on the dance charts before going on hiatus in 1998, following the birth of lead singer Heather Small’s child. Small returned to recording in 2000, releasing her solo debut to both commercial and critical success. Her debut single Proud later became the official theme song for London’s successful bid for the 2012 Summer Olympics. M People started touring again in 2007 and released a greatest hits collection. Meanwhile, founder Mike Pickering took a day job in A&R at Columbia Records, where he works with several hot new music acts.
