A plaque has been unveiled in Southampton city centre to honour R&B star Craig David.
Unveiled as part of the city’s Black History month by MP John Denham, the plaque celebrates the musical achievements of Craig David, who grew up on the Holyrood estate.
Whilst he now lives in Miami, David played a gig at the O2 Guildhall Southampton in May, and returned to the city today for the unveiling, where he also posed for photos with fans.
Speaking to the Daily Echo, David said: “It’s an honour to have a plaque put up in my name. It’s about showing the youth in Southampton that people can be successful if they have dreams and aspirations. If you work hard you can achieve anything.”
Craig David achieved a large amount of mainstream success in the early 2000s, being nominated for 12 BRIT Awards. He is due to release his sixth studio album Following My Intuition next year.
