A SCOTTISH classical singer will enter world of football when she performs at the UEFA Champions League Final this weekend.

Daisy Chute, 21, will perform as one quarter of classical girl group All Angels.

The Edinburgh-born singer has already performed for the Queen, Sir Paul McCartney and was the supporting act for Katherine Jenkins on her UK tour.

But the final at Wembley Stadium will see her perform in front of her largest audience with 90,000 inside the stadium and millions watching worldwide on TV.

The group are singing the famous Champions League theme song before the game between Manchester United and Barcelona kicks off.

Daisy said:

“It’s the same Champions League theme song but we are doing an extra arrangement that’s a little bit unusual.

“I think it will be the biggest crowd we have performed to. That will be quite scary in itself, let alone the TV viewers.

“I don’t think it’s quite hit us yet. This is one of the biggest football events in the world and there will be millions and millions of people watching on TV – that’s the scary part. It will make us up our game.

“It can’t compare to any of our other performances – it’s like nothing else.

“I can imagine it will be quite a spectacular performance to watch. It should be fun. “

But the singer admitted that she isn’t a big football fan.

She added:

“I can tolerate it for 20 minutes while my boyfriend watches Match of the Day, but that’s about it. “

The group will sing the theme tune in four different languages – English, French, Italian and Spanish.

They are considering wearing their Union Jack dresses that they wore to this year’s Classical Brit Awards at the Royal Albert Hall.

Daisy’s mother Alice will be watching her daughter perform at home in East Lothian.

She said:

“They sang at Wembley a couple of times before and at Twickenham and old Trafford, but I think this is probably the biggest. “

The Brit-nominated band is also made up of Charlotte Ritchie, Melanie Nakhla and Rachel Fabri, who replaced Laura Wright last year.
