The acclaimed recording artist and entertainer Lance Ellington returns with new single Do You Salsa?. The album Happy! will follow on 12th November.
The fun official video showcases Lance’s velvety voice and features Ian Waite and Erin Boag of Strictly fame in cameo roles. Halfway through the video, the message ‘Get the Nation Dancing’ flicks across the screen before the Ian Waites’ FITSTEPS instructors appear on split screen. As a nod to our social media and Zoom lockdown culture, the dancers filmed themselves on their phones.
Do You Salsa? is co-written with Josh Philips, composer of the title theme for Strictly Come Dancing and a member of the prog rock band Procol Harum.
Do You Salsa? is a sunny, light, fun number to get the nation dancing out of the lockdown.
