Angel to sing for the President
Charlotte Church
Charlotte has already sung for the Pope and the Queen
Teenage soprano Charlotte Church has been invited to sing in America for President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary later this month.

The 13-year-old star will sing Amazing Grace, reportedly the President's favourite on a bill with various other artists at the Ford's Theatre in Washington on 13 June.

Afterwards Charlotte and her parents Maria and James from Llandaff, Cardiff have been invited to an exclusive White House tea party.


Charlotte's album went platinum in the UK
"I am so excited to be having tea at the White House," said Charlotte.

In the last year Charlotte has performed for the Pope, the Queen, Prime Minister Tony Blair and the Prince of Wales.

She sang Hark The Herald Angels Sing for the Pope at the Vatican's Christmas concert and took the same stage as Geri Halliwell to sing for Prince Charles' 50th birthday.

The Welsh star accompanied Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber at a NSPCC appeal launch in front of the Prime Minister and last week she performed for the Queen at the official opening of the new Welsh parliament.

Charlotte was signed by Sony Music in 1997 after she was spotted on a TV talent show.

Her album Voice Of An Angel has sold two million copies worldwide and has made her the youngest ever solo artist to enter the American top 30 album chart.
