Natalie Coyle - Natalie Coyle hoping for Streisand sing-along at Wembley

Classical singing sensation Natalie Coyle is hoping Barbra Streisand will tune in to her Wembley Stadium performance this weekend.

The blonde beauty is to sing the British National Anthem at the iconic venue in front of 80,000 fans on Saturday (24.08.13), and after Sir Elton John sang along to her last performance at the stadium in May before watching his beloved Watford FC, the 25-year-old stunner is hoping to go one better this time.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''There are pictures of Elton John singing along last time I was there, it was pretty cool. He is amazing, I don't know if I can get that much better than having someone like him singing along with me.

''But I wouldn't mind Barbra Streisand. Not that she goes to watch UK football matches, but that would be great.

''Elton John was pretty big because musically he's a genius. But I don't think I could ever get used to performing at Wembley.''

Natalie will sing 'God Save The Queen' and 'Abide With Me' ahead of the Tetley's Challenge Cup Final between rugby league sides Hull FC and Wigan Warriors. While it will be her hat-trick of National Anthem performances at the stunning stadium, she is still expecting to be ''terrified'' before she launches into her first note.

She added: ''It feels like a second home now, I'm gradually learning the names of everyone who works at the stadium as it will be the third time this summer I will have performed there.

''It's still scary, though - I can never eat before, I just drink hot water and lemon.

''As you go into the corridors nearing the Players' Tunnel you can hear people's feet stomping and a slow, really silent grumbling and you're like, 'It's going to happen.'

''It's the most amazing experience and you can't really describe it. When you're on the pitch by yourself the sound just focuses on you. It's the strangest experience. You can never prepare for the sound, that's what gets you.

''It's amazing and an honour but there is that element of complete and utter fear. It's terrifying.''
