When 10 year old Sophie made her debut as a pop star, she had no idea she’d be performing for a royal audience – HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton were guests of honour at the event!
Sophie, who is from Surrey, was diagnosed with optic glioma, a rare form of tumour on the optic nerve. Starlight transformed her wish, to be a pop star for the day, into an experience fit for a real life pop princess, complete with hair styling, a new outfit and travel by limousine.
The finale to her truly wonderful day was singing A Whole New World on stage for a very special Starlight audience. After her performance, the room erupted into a standing ovation before queues of fans formed to meet Sophie and congratulate her.
