Charlotte Church: tackling sexism in the music industry

 The Big Issue in the North - UK 18 November 2019

At just 11-years-old Charlotte Church was catapulted into fame in Britain after singing down the phone for a BBC television programme. Since then the Welsh singer has become a classical music star, selling more than 10 million records worldwide. Church is also an actress and television presenter who became one of many celebrity victims of phone hacking by the now defunct News of the World tabloid. Church speaks to Richard Smirke of The Big Issue in the North about growing up in the spotlight and her new ambitions as an independent artist. (2258 Words) - By Richard Smirke
