A schoolgirl singer from Cornwall who has been in and out of hospital all her life has become a global internet star.

Lottee Brown from St Ives has cerebral palsy and a bowel condition.

Despite a speech problem, the 12 year old whose real name is Charlotte, could sing before she could talk.

She tells Pirate FM soul singing has got her through the tough times: "When I'm having my medication, yeah, I sing really loud. When my mum and dad are like cooking something, they go Charlotte, shut up!

"I really love those songs and they've got a little bit of smooth, yeah smooth soul and it's really good. Everybody's like cheering for me really loud and I'm like ooh."

 

Lottee will be in the Pirate FM studio on Monday morning to sing live on air.


Lottee's music videos have notched up thousands of hits online.



Mum Victoria said: "We've had to really support her and pull her through some really tough times and music really does pull her through. We've had a situation where we were in hospital in London and she's gone into a room just to sing to make her feel better.

"Lottee's been through a lot since she was born, in and out of hospital with major bowel conditions. To have a child of yours that sing the way the way they do, with so much soul when they've had so much work done, I'm so proud of her it's unbelievable."
