RISING star Laura Mbuvla broke off from a 40-date tour this week to perform at the black-tie opening of the £30 million expansion to the ­Edinburgh International ­Conference Centre.

The songstress – whose style has been compared with Nina Simone – performed to a 700-strong audience in the new Lennox Suite as the headline act with impressionist John Culshaw the warm-up act.

The 2000sq metre extension features a hall-wide moving floor for transformations from flat-floored exhibition space to tiered theatre and arena.
