Hampshire Poppy Girls Sing For Queen
Two Hampshire schoolgirls will be singing for the Queen later, at the Annual Festival of Remembrance.
10-year-old Florence Ransom from Petersfield, and 13-year-old Alice Millburn from Portsmouth were two of five winners of a competition run by the Royal British Legion and Decca Records to find the stars of the future; entrants had to be between 9-16 year-olds at the time, with a parent serving in the forces.
The girls' band, Poppy Girls, will be releasing 'The Call (No Need To Say Goodbye)' on November 11th, after singing infront of The Queen and a television audience of over six million at this year's Festival of Remembrance later.
Florence told Heart that her new found fame is making her very busy, she said: "It's going to be difficult having lots going on out of school and then going back into school and having loads of work to do and catch up".
