LONDON: Pop singer Rozalla looks incredible at 58 with an ageless transformation three decades since her rise to fame in the 90s.
The Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good) hitmaker first reached the UK charts in August 1991 and instantly became a top 10 hit in many European countries, as well as the Billboard Top 40 in 1992.
And in 2023, the Zimbabwean singer is still belting out her greatest single to the masses, and most recently performed at the Betfred Super League rugby match at DW Stadium in Wigan, looking just like she did in the 1990s.
Back then, dance artist Rozalla (full name Rozalla Miller) exuded the spirit of the decade with her metallic belts, out-there earrings and voluminous hair-dos.
Rolling forward to her appearance in the 2020s, the 58-year-old has stuck with her iconic brunette curly hair and still looks youthful as she did then.
During her career, Rozalla joined Michael Jackson on the European leg of his Dangerous tour in 1992.
She described this time as ‘one of the biggest highlights’ of her career and added that it ‘forever will be’.
Speaking to Retropop in April 2022, Rozalla revealed: “That was incredible. I think about that from time to time and, of course, my husband doesn’t let me forget it
“Sometimes he’ll joke when we’re watching another act that’s performing on stage, he’ll lean over and say, ‘They’re really good, but did they support Michael Jackson?’ Don’t think so…
“Honestly, I just think to myself, that was one of the biggest highlights of my career and it forever will be.”
She also divulged that at one point while the pair were taking pictures on the tour, Michael turned around and asked her how she looks after her voice because he was ‘struggling’.
Rozalla admitted that without saying it out loud, she couldn’t believe her ears and thought ‘What?! You’re Michael Jackson and you’re asking me’.
The beauty now dons a longer hair-do and has added a touch of blonde to her luscious curls.
She only added a light palette of makeup to her look in recent performances in February and last June.
At her show in Wigan on 24 February, she slipped into a pair of leather tight leggings and supported the local team with a rugby shirt on top.
At the Lets Rock Leeds 80s Festival in June last year, Rozalla donned an all-white look which showcased her slender physique.
The hit single is not her only biggest song, but has lasted the years as TV shows including Love Island have used it in their programmes.
Another dance track of hers titled I Love Music was the soundtrack to Hollywood movie Carlito’s Way, which featured Sean Penn and Al Pacino in 1993.
Even reality TV star Gemma Collins released a cover of Rozalla’s track in 2018 when she was trying to launch her own pop career.
Talking about the song choice at the time, Gemma said: “I remember that song coming on and being with my friends and we had our worst wigs on and worst spray tans, but we just partied the night away.”
