Sonique is a British singer, musician and DJ. She is best known for her song It Feels So Good. She was the lead vocalist on two S’Express singles, and the majority of the tracks on the group’s second album, Intercourse. She won the 2001 BRIT Award for British female solo artist.

Born 21 June 1968 in Crouch End, North London, United Kingdom to parents of Trinidadian descent and has actually credited listening to her mother’s CD collection as the reason behind her musical success. When Sonique was sixteen her mother re-married and moved back to Trinidad, she refused to move with her mother and two siblings and instead stayed in England moving into the YMCA, but with mounting debt and disgusted by the sexual advances of the hostel warden, she moved out and slept on the streets.
However, at the age of seventeen, a youth worker commented that she had a nice voice and suggested she utilize it, so she put together a reggae band called “Fari” in which she ended up writing all the music. She credits this band with getting her through her time on the streets.
