Kavana (born Anthony Kavanagh, 4 November 1977) is a British singer and actor who scored a number of hit singles in the late 1990s. In 2014, he became part of the supergroup 5th Story, who took part in the second 9 series of The Big Reunion. In 2015, he took part in the fifteenth series of the Channel 5 reality series Celebrity Big Brother.
Kavana is the debut studio album by British singer-songwriter Kavana. Kavana was discovered by Take That's manager Nigel Martin-Smith, and was subsequently signed to his label in early 1996. The album was recorded throughout 1996 and the beginning of 1997, being released the week following the album's fourth single, "MFEO". Kavana worked with many big name stars on the album, including Lulu ("Protected", who also provides backing vocals for the track) and Howard Donald ("Crazy Chance"). The album was released on 11 April 1997 to good critical reception, however only reached #29 on the UK Albums Chart. Subsequently, second pressing copies of the album have a "Reduced Price" logo printed on the booklet and were retailed shortly before the release of "Crazy Chance '97". However, again these failed to increase the album's chart position. Both " I Can Make You Feel Good" and "MFEO" became UK Top 10 hits, both peaking at #8 respectively.
