Greatest Discovery: Child musical star wants to duet with Elton

Friday 27 June 2003 @ 7:13 - GMT

Ten year-old Ellis de Bie started composing music on her piano about a year ago. Since then she's written several pieces including one dedicated to Elton John, and she's even got a CD with 16 tracks on it.

Having won a distinction at the Alan Dean music festival, a scholarship would be a real boost, especially because there are no stage schools where she lives in the UK. At the moment she sacrifices her crucial Saturday morning on the swings to go to a part-time stage school nearby. She told GMTV:

Who's your pop idol? Gareth Gates. He's got a beautiful personality and because of his stammer he's had to try very hard to get where he is.

What do you want to do when you grow up? A singer-songwriter like Elton John. I've got all of his CDs.

And perhaps in words that might resonate with same sex Elton...

Have you got a boyfriend? Nooo! Boys are horrible...
