Back in 2012, a young Charlotte Brimner was chasing her dream of performing in front of a screaming festival crowd.
Now the singer — who performs as Be Charlotte — has been signed to record label Columbia/Sony Music joining the likes of global superstars Adele and Beyonce.
The 20-year-old, who hails from Kellas in Angus, fulfilled her dream of performing in front of a big crowd at last year’s Carnival Fifty Six in Camperdown Park and toured several countries.
Now, she has been snapped up to record with one of one of the industry’s major players.
In a social media post, the former Morgan Academy pupil said: “The biggest thank you to the people who are closest to me for encouraging me to follow my dreams.
“My manager told me this day was going to happen when we first started working together and it would not have been possible without his support and guidance. “Thanks for believing in me.
“Much love to my band and team for being the best there is.
“This is an incredibly exciting next step and I can’t wait to release some new music.
“But don’t worry I’m not going to start acting like a diva now.”
Charlotte was named as the best electronic act at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards in October 2016.
A year later she released her debut EP — Heart of Survival — on 12-inch vinyl.
The singer also represented Scotland at the official handover ceremony at the Solheim Cup golf tournament last August.
The Tele first told of Charlotte’s dreams of stardom in a 2012 article (pictured above), exactly six years before she signed her deal.
Dundee-born music PR guru Murray Chalmers, who formerly represented the singer, said: “It’s great news.
“I know she’s worked very hard to get to this stage and she deserves all the success I am sure she has coming. Columbia is a great label.”
