SUGABABES singer Heidi Range is being urged by a major record label to take
them up on a tantalising solo offer - and bosses claim they can turn her into
the next Beyonce Knowles.
Heidi is currently riding high with fellow Sugababes Mutya Buena and
Keisha Buchanan, but at least one large record label is keen to snap up her
vocal talents before the FREAK LIKE ME band splits.
Bemused Heidi explains, "It's crazy. All I have ever wanted to do is sing
and now they say that once the band have ceased to be popular they can see me
having a solo career like Beyonce."
A music insider adds, "She is without doubt the most popular member of the
group, with a great voice. We think we could develop a DESTINY'S CHILD-like
situation with her. We are looking at tracks we could release to test the
"Who knows where it will lead?"
Heidi, who was originally in Atomic Kitten, replaced SIOBHAN DONAGHY - who
claimed the group made her depressed - in 2001.
