JESSIE J will perform in Cannock Chase Forest next summer as part of a woodland tour.

The singer's career has sky rocketed in recent years since her first hit Price Tag.

Highlights have included number one singles and two hugely successful albums that headed straight for the top with millions of sales worldwide, show-stopping performances in front of a global audience of billions at the London Olympics, a full-blown Saturday night prime-time television career, extraordinary acts for charity, Glastonbury festival and the Diamond Jubilee Concert.

With Jessie's multi-platinum debut Who You Are she achieved the accolade of being the first UK solo artist to have six top 10 hits off one album including two number ones, Price Tag and Domino.

Success continues with the release this year of her second power-pop album Alive featuring the hit singles Wild, It's My Party and Thunder alongside a sell-out UK arena tour.

The event is the first announcement of two nights of events in Cannock Chase forest as part of the tour.

Income from the Forest Live concerts is spent on improving the woodland for both people and wildlife.

The singer made her Forest Live debut this year with one gig which whetted her appetite for more.

She said: "I loved it so it's great to be taking in another four Forest Live dates next year -see you there."

Tickets for the gig on Friday, June 27, are £42.90 (including £3.90 booking fee) and are available from the Forestry Commission box office on 03000 680400 or online at www.forestry.gov.uk/music.
