It seems that sky is the limit for Manchester-based singer/songwriter Mica Millar, who empowers and motivates us to follow our dreams, with her latest single Preacher Man. From the eclectic soundscapes to her powerful vocal accompaniment, Preacher Man is a song that sets itself up to be an anthem.

Mica says about the song: "I think as human beings we have lost that sense of spiritual purpose; the joy of doing what you love, going for your dreams. I’ve always believed that we all have a gift - something some people never uncover in themselves because of the circumstances of their lives and the society that we live in."

Mica's debut album Heaven Knows is set for release in June 2022.
