“It was written by me and my daughter.’

“Let’s hear it then said Tony as he slid the tape into the recorder and pressed play.’


He sat with a pair of head phones on then his head was nodding from side to side as he listened to the lyrics. When it was finished he said that he liked it.’

Who is the girl singing in the background?’

“That’s my daughter Dawn.

“She has a great voice Jim; I want her to sing the lead vocals on this.’

Can you get her here tomorrow?’

“Yes but.’

“But what?’


“Well get her down here tomorrow and we will record her; I want the single out before the end of the month when “Freddy and the Dreamers” are going to release their new single.’

“What time can you get here for?’

“It took me four and a half hours to drive down.’

“Fly down I will charter a plane for you at seven o’clock be on it.’

“Thanks Tony.’

“Bye Jim.’

“Jim came out of the studio and was disappointed that they didn’t want him singing the song but this was a perfect opportunity for Dawn.’

She sang in a voice a lot older than her years.’

Tony was going to get a shock tomorrow.’

“He drove home all the way stopping only to fill up again with petrol.

He was so excited that he felt as if his chest would burst.’

He got home at ten thirty and rushed into the house.

“Where’s Dawn he asked Rosina?’

“She just gone up to bed Jim what is wrong; I thought you were staying over tonight?’

They love the song and they want to record Dawn singing it.’ We have to be in Newcastle before six tomorrow morning. “You can come too Rosina the flights are being taken care of. We’re flying first class on a charter flight.’

Jim ran up stairs and told Dawn.’

“They want me to sing not you daddy?’

 “Yes, they do my princess; do you realise what this means?’

“If this song is a hit you are going to be a big star.’

Now I want you to read the words to the song off by heart tomorrow on the plane then we will go straight for a take tomorrow.’

“Wow I cannot believe this is happening.’

Well you better believe it honey because this time next week your record will be in the charts.’

Jim kissed his daughter and told her to get some sleep as they would be getting up early.’

“What about school.’

“I will ring them when we get to London.’

Now darling listen do not sign anything without me seeing it first do you hear.; these people may come across all sweetness and light but believe me they are ruthless when it comes to business. “I am going to be your manager Dawn and you are going to be a big star.’
