A Brit teen is being tipped for international stardom after a video of her singing in her bedroom racked up 6 MILLION views on YouTube – and was spotted by music giants Warner.
Talented Daisy Clark, 18, had only just worked out the guitar chords to the 70s classic ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You’ from the musical ‘Grease’ and recorded her first attempt at it.
She posted it on her YouTube channel and it was snapped up by Music Crowns, a promotion platform for unsigned and independent music artists.
They shared it on Facebook where it has since had SIX MILLION views in six months.
It was spotted by music giants Warner who are now putting their massive resources behind promoting her video.
They are releasing her cover of the classic from the musical Grease today.
Excited Daisy, who has only left her home county of Cornwall twice, is now tipped for the big time and has put her plans to go to university on hold.
She said: “I’m so excited about it all. It’s my first release and the feedback on the video was amazing.”
“I did a one take, just sat in my bedroom, not really thinking about it and it went crazy.”
Daisy, who lives with parents Nick and Nicki and younger brother Charlie in Newquay, Cornwall, posted the video of her singing the song online last September.
She added: “I put it on my YouTube channel and Music Crowns shared it without me really knowing.
“Then I suddenly got all these notifications and it went crazy.”
“It was quite random. Warner had seen some of my YouTube videos and they got in touch with Music Crowns.
“I nearly didn’t post this cover online as I’d received some negative comments on my uploads recently – but I’m so glad I did.
“The past few months have been out of this world. The music scene in Cornwall isn’t huge, but I always hoped someone would see and love my music and my covers.”
Daisy re-recorded the song last week with the Warner Music label We Are Instrumental who are releasing it on iTunes and Spotify.
The original song was performed by Olivia Newton-John in 1978 in Grease which also starred John Travolta.
Daisy, who went to Truro College in Cornwall, can’t remember a day when she hasn’t sung and she taught herself guitar at the age of 13.
Her style has been described as a mix between Eva Cassidy and Ed Sheeran – two of her heroes.
Over the past few years she has built herself a steady fan base in Cornwall and online – with videos of her own original songs and covers garnering over 10 million views across social media.
She said: “It’s so exciting that someone like me, from a tiny town miles away from London, can release such an iconic song after being spotted online.
“I hope it will inspire other musicians around the country to keep trying, and not let small town mentality or negativity get them down.
“I want to release my own original stuff in the future as songwriting is one of my passions.
“This year I decided not to go to uni and just be fully devoted to music after Warner got in touch.”
