Charlotte Church Gets Her Start

Charlotte Church was born in Llandaff, Wales and has loved music ever since she can remember. Charlotte Church had her first taste of show biz when she jumped onstage at a camp with her cousin and started belting out the Ghostbusters' song when she was just three and a half. When they finished singing her cousin left the stage, but Charlotte Church liked it so much she had to be dragged off. Five years later Charlotte Church was making the rounds singing in local karaoke competitions. One day Charlotte Church was watching The Richard and Judy Show and they said they were looking for talented kids. Charlotte Church called them up herself and the producers asked her to sing into the phone. Charlotte Church sang Pie Jesu and the next thing you know she was a guest on the show. Charlotte Church's parents were the last to find out!

Charlotte Church - The Overnight Success

Charlotte Church's extraordinary voice and performance led to TV appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Rosie - plus major concerts at the London Palladium, the Royal Albert Hall and Cardiff Arms Park. In 1998 Charlotte Church released her first album Voice of an Angel at the age of 12 and became a classical superstar. Charlotte Church followed it up in 1999 with the CD Charlotte Church, which included the single Just Wave Hello. The Ford Motor Company liked the song so much they used it in a commercial for the Ford Global Millennium vehicle. In 2002, Charlotte Church released, Prelude, her greatest hits album and in 2003 she starred in her first movie, I'll Be There. Not bad for a 17 year-old.

    This has to be one of the weirdest polls I have ever seen, they are two completely different things with two completely different audiences. They are not really comparable, kind of like apples and oranges.
