Showpeople is the debut album by UK singer Mari Wilson. It was released in 1983 and featured her breakthrough hit "Just What I Always Wanted". In early 1982, Wilson had achieved minor success with two singles, "Beat the Beat" and "Baby It's True", but it was in September that she broke through to top ten success when "Just What I Always Wanted" became a N. hit. The song sparked media interest in Wilson due to her 1960s image (in particular her beehive hairstyle) and retro sound

The Neasden Queen of Soul. This is how we soundcheck - before we became showpeople at Boston Spa last eve, we looked like this. It’s glamour and high fashion all the way winks .

PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone). Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early 80s with her skyscraper beehive hairdo bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations. Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event - pure entertainment. A mainstay of Top Of The Pops (and an avid collector of Tupperware), Mari released six hit singles, the biggest being 'Just What I Always Wanted' and 'Cry Me A River', both taken from her classic album 'Showpeople'. Mari’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Pop Deluxe, (her album of songs previously made famous by Dusty, Cilla, Petula and Sandie) continues to be a big part of her fabulous show, together with her well known hits and a few surprises. Mari’s audience is mesmerised by not only her voice but her spontaneous wit and natural storytelling, testament to 38 years of touring.
