Bianca has cystic fibrosis, an illness that affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system. Starlight granted her wish to record an album and organised for her to sing live with a very special guest …
Bianca’s dad said: “Bianca absolutely loves singing and has always wanted to record an album. She spends two or three hours a night singing when she gets home from school, so when Starlight granted her wish, it was a dream come true. It means everything to her, and to us.”
Knowing that Biance wished to sing live to an audience, Starlight’s wish granters arranged for Bianca to spend the afternoon recording at 750mph studios, after which she was whisked off to the celebrity-studded Starlight Ball.
In front of 700 people, including Starlight’s celebrity supporters Dougray Scott, Melinda Messenger, Hugh Dancy and Bill Nighy, Bianca sang a duet of Something Inside So Strong with none other than Will Young! Bianca sang beautifully and received a standing ovation.
Bianca’s dad added: “It was honestly and truly the most amazing night of our lives. Bianca never could have imagined in her wildest dreams that she would appear on stage with a pop idol in front of a celebrity audience, let alone get the reaction she did. It totally blew us away.”
