“A TEEN singing sensation is celebrating after signing her first record contract. Carla Tagg, who goes by the stage name Carla May has put pen to paper with record label Starfighter, meaning she will release her first official album later in the year. The 14-year-old Hall Cross pupil only started singing two years ago, but has now said she hopes to emulate the success of Jessie J with a mix of pop and R and B songs. She said: “I am really happy about signing the contract. “The next step is to get four songs together for my extended play, which will be a mix of songs and include some I have written. “I sing all sorts of songs from ballads to up tempo numbers, but the ballads are better for my voice.” Her record will be produced by the team behind Paloma Faith and Plan B and she is set to perform in front of Blue’s Duncan James next month at a concert in Scarborough. ”
“AND here are a couple more wannabe showbiz stars... Tom Moriarty (he’s the one with the beard) and Carla May (without) are the proto-popstrels set to turn Steel City soccer rivalry into a charity chart battle. Singer Tom is to release Wednesday favourite Singing The Blues, while Sprotbrough school girl Carla May will put out Annie’s Song, which United’s Greasy Chip Butty Song is based on. And, after featuring in The Diary last month, this is the moment the pair finally met in front of The Star cameras. It wasn’t exactly a pre-fight Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier squaring up – but there was some gentle ribbing. “Up the Wednesday,” said 38-year-old London-based Tom, while 14-year-old Carla giggled a lot. But whoever sells most, it will be Sheffield Children’s Hospital which has the last laugh. Ninety per cent of profits will be donated there.”
“FORGET the Steel City derby later in the month - it seems Owls and Blades fans are being put at the centre of another rivalry this season. Two proto-pop stars are going head-to-head by releasing their versions of Singing The Blues and The Greasy Chip Butty Song. And, because both singles are in aid of Sheffield Children’s Hospital, the generosity of both sets of supporters is at stake. Singer-songwriter Tom Moriarty is to put out the Wednesday number complete with reference to the (in)famous Boxing Day Massacre; while Doncaster based schoolgirl Carla May is to offer up a classic version of Annie’s Song, the inspiration behind the Blades fabled chant.
