90s popstar Kele Le Roc is returning to the spotlight more than two decades after taking the music industry by storm.

The musician, 48, first soared to fame with underground hit, Let Me Know, in 1995 before scoring two top 10 hits on the UK singles chart.

Her best-known song, My Love, peaked at number 8, won the Mobo Award for Best Single, and is considered one of the best garage anthems of all time.

It has been 25 years since Kele released her only album Everybody’s Somebody and now she is changing tact and pursuing a career in acting.

She has a role in upcoming British film Look To The Light which follows a wannabe influencer (Charlie Goddard) who throws away his old life to pursue fame and fortune when he gets selected for reality series Love on the Rocks.

Kele joins a cast that includes EastEnders icon Lucy Benjamin, Holby City’s Mark Moraghan and Rocketman star Rachel Muldoon.

‘I’m proud to be a part of anything that brings real stories to the forefront of the public consciousness,’ Kele previously told Music News.

‘I’ve been a part of the entertainment industry my whole adult life and I’m fortunate to be at peace with the artist I developed into.

‘Young people of today with dreams and ambition have a much tougher journey ahead.’

Kele’s other top 10 hit was Little Bit of Lovin’ and shortly after its release she won the Mobo Award for Best Newcomer.

She also collaborated with other artists including Basement Jaxx for the number 6 hit Romeo and Coolio.

In the past few years, Kele has been making the most of any opportunity handed to her, including festival appearances and a reality TV show,  There’s No Housewives In The South.

She previously told after lockdown restrictions had eased: ‘Since the world opened up again, I’ve been non-stop. I’m really grateful and feel really blessed to be back in the swing of it. Every gig I get offered, if I can, I’m working it, so I’m tired!’

‘The way I’m seeing it is I’m making up for lost time. Festival season has been great. People just want to go out. All the events that are happening, the people there are just on it!’
