Biography

There are multiple bands/artists under the name Mika.

1) Mika (born Michael Holbrook Penniman in 1983) is a Beirut-born, Paris and London-raised, London, UK-based singer who has a contract with Island Records and used to attend Westminster School. He first appeared on BBC Radio 1 in September 2006. He has a background in classical songwriting.

His long awaited first album Life in Cartoon Motion was commercially released on 5th February 2007. It has a coming of age theme, and deals with the transition from childhood to his current position in life. His debut single was Relax, Take It Easy (2006) though the second single Grace Kelly seemed to garner more media attention. In January 2007 he took the UK charts by storm; his second single Grace Kelly charted at Nº3 with downloads alone, and climbed to Nº1 on January 21, 2007.

His second album was called The Boy Who Knew Too Much and the main single from that album was We Are Golden.

The Celebrate Songfacts reports that his third album is called The Origin of Love and the main single from that album is Celebrate.

In December 2006, more than 130 UK-based music critics and broadcasters took part in the BBC’s prestigious Sound of 2007 music poll and MIKA was named the best new talent for 2007.

    Um dos poucos artistas pop que me agrada totalmente, esse cara é amor demais. Não tem como não amar.

    This is what he needed, a return to the debut's sound. This is the Mika i was obsessed with back in 2007.
