Known for her pop bangers, insane voice and awesome fluorescent yellow hair, Alma was ready to play her biggest London headline to date at Heaven. Watching Alma perform live along with her hype-girl Anna and backed by her band is something we can only describe as a ‘Religious Pop Experience’. If you know, you know.
A simple stage set up with her infamous ‘Alma’ logo at the back was all the show needed. When you listen to her music you don’t need all the theatrics that some Popstars need. It works amazingly for some but when you have absolute hits like Alma does, there is no need for the typical Pop façade.
Playing tracks like ‘Chit Chat’ and ‘Legend’ from her recently released ‘Heavy Rules’ mixtape, you could feel the floor bounce. There was no room or time at this gig for standing still nursing your overly expensive pint. If you weren’t dancing then there was no need for you to be there.
Even when there was a moment in the set where they brought it down a notch for ‘BACK2U’, the energy was still very much present and it only kept growing.
With her loyal fans sporting fluorescent yellow wigs in ode to the songstress, she invited one of them to the stage to sing her heart out and dance with her idol. Another quality that makes you fall in love with Alma.
Ending on her massive hit ‘Chasing Highs’, without sounding too cheesey, we were all left on a high. Making the crowd sing as loud as they could until the very last moment, Alma left the stage.

We can only describe the moments after the show like when you go on an amazing holiday, you return home from said holiday and you feel so sad, the only thing you want to do is go back. Basically we’re really sad and the only thing we want right now is to return to Heaven and Alma.
