A SINGER who has already been name-checked by none other than Kylie Minogue is taking her first strides towards musical stardom.

And Elouise’s link with the chart-topper is reinforced by the fact that the 28-year-old has been working alongside the Australian superstar’s musical director.

Bury girl Elouise, whose real name is Louise Freeman, has already released her debut, The Stardust EP, and performed at a sell-out show in London.

She is now working towards her own show, Stardust, to be premiered at The Tabernacle in London’s Notting Hill on September 11.

Interest in the gig is considerable among the cream of the pop world for, according to Elouise, Kylie has mentioned the show on her Twitter page, an endorsement other entertainers would die for.

Elouise said: “I can’t believe that she actually Tweeted about my show.

“I’ve been working with Kylie’s musical director, Steve Anderson.

“All the three tracks on my debut limited EP have been produced by him.

“And we have just finished recording my second release, Stardust Melodies, which will be released next month.”

This is an exciting time for the singer and dancer who grew up in Brandlesholme Road.

After attending Woodbank primary and Elton High schools, she took theatre studies, art and design and English literature at Holy Cross College, Bury.

Elouise, who has lived in London for the past four years, subsequently pursued a performing arts degree at Salford University.

She secured her first showbiz role in Les Miserables at Manchester’s Palace Theatre at the age of 11 and, after university, was in the cast of the musical, Copacabana’s, UK tour before working on board a ship.

After forming her own band, the Bury singer came to the attention of Steve Anderson and recording soon followed.
