Cheryl shares the R&B songs that shaped her life in new music show on BBC Sounds

You, Me & R&B with Cheryl is the brand-new music show from BBC Sounds and BBC Radio 2 beginning Friday 27 August.

Across 12 episodes Cheryl will share stories of her youth and love for R&B music, from TLC to Beyoncé.

Cheryl says: "I've always had an absolute love and passion for R&B so I'm hoping listeners are transported back and absorbed in their own nostalgia too. Music can be really healing when you're going through something painful or happy, by revisiting those moments you can take back your power, I've discovered that myself throughout the process."

As a teenager Cheryl sought after the soulful melodies from the likes of Mary J Blige and Erykah Badu. Throughout the series she'll look at uncovering the root of her obsession with the genre, reflecting on childhood stories and the songs connected to those special moments.

The nostalgic R&B tunes chosen by Cheryl will soundtrack some of her most prominent memories as she journeys through heartbreak, love and the songs that healed her soul.

You, Me & R&B with Cheryl is the latest in a collection of new on-demand music shows curated by high-profile guests on BBC Sounds, including Charli XCX's Best Song Ever and Romesh Ranganathan: For The Love Of Hip Hop, with more to be announced soon.
