Philippa Hanna is an acclaimed British singer-songwriter, based in Sheffield, UK. Since her 2007 debut, Philippa has released several studio albums, an EP and a live DVD, and published two autobiographical books.
Philippa has toured with Lionel Ritchie, Anastacia, Leona Lewis, Wet Wet Wet and Collabro and in 2016 performed alongside Little Mix on the European leg of their world tour. In summer 2016 she topped the Christian music charts with her album Speed of Light, and reached number 17, 2 places behind Adele in the iTunes download charts.
Her music frequently draws upon her experiences of a turbulent youth, and the Christian faith she found in 2004. She aims to offer a positive message for fans: Songs like I Am Amazing and Raggedy Doll have seen Philippa champion self-esteem in young people.
