THE VERY FIRST LIVE PERFORMANCE BY TORI WHITE took place at The Goring Hotel, London in front of a media audience and guests on Tuesday, September 25 (2007) in conjunction with The Royal British Legion.

The Goring Hotel was chosen not just for being London's quintessentially English hotel, but also because it is the place where Tori's father Nigel White had met Jim Dooley and asked him to listen to his daughter's recording.

Tori sang three songs, including her brilliant single You Don't Scare Me At All and also Remember Me — the track was co-written and produced by Jim Dooley for the 2007 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. The effect of her live singing was staggering and brought a lump to the throat.

Tori is an absolute knockout and has that elusive gift of
star quality. The depth and strength of her voice is quite astounding and she will go far. She should expect something big — we thought she had the presence of a young Judy Garland when she was fresh and unspoilt. Each time you
hear the CD it sounds fresh and new, but her singing is even better live.

She gave such a fantastic performance that nobody in the room was in any doubt why BBC producers were so moved by her singing and Remember Me that the song was selected for the 2007 Festival of Remembrance. Tori will make history by becoming the first pop artist ever to have an official song for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Tori White benefits from the backing, love and support of
her close-knit family: father Nigel, who clearly dotes upon
his daughter; her mother Sue and brother Chris.

You could quite believe her declaration You Don't Scare Me At All as she came across as being happy, confident and chilled out. But never, ever any trace of vanity. — Maggie Woods

'A bastion of quality and absolute individuality', the hotel understands the expectat-ions of its guests with luxury, comfort, good food and drink and attentive service. It was the first hotel in the world to provide guests with a private bath for each bedroom and is ideal for a very special stay in London (it is a short walk round the corner to Buckingham Palace) or for a pre-theatre meal from 6pm.

WITH A LITTLE LUCK and a lot of talent, glamorous new pop discovery Tori White is hotly tipped for stardom. The girl with
the exceptional, silky voice is making her debut major performance on November 10 — live to the nation on the BBC at The Royal Albert Hall, in front of the Queen and other royal and very special guests.

An artiste of revered musical standing, Tori is expected to follow in the steps of Victoria Hart as the latest 'Vocaltech' music academy graduate to be singled out for excellence. Victoria was the teenager for whom George Clooney recently helped to pull off a multi-million pound record deal.

Tori's remarkable achievement started in January 2006 with an audition to enrol for the Vocal Diploma Course. Once course tutors had heard her sing, Tori was instantly elevated to the Master Diploma — the youngest of five vocalists chosen to take the Master Diploma by five years. Not sur-prisingly, she earned the highest grades for her six show-cases.

Listening to her single You Don't Scare Me At All, her voice certainly has the feel of being 'established' and it was this unique vocal delivery that sparked the interest of the front man of one of the world's most successful bands, The Dooley's.

Producer/legend Jim Dooley had a chance meeting with Tori's father at an hotel. "He mentioned his daughter was a singer and gave me her demo," says Jim. "I was blown away and agreed to be her executive producer. I played her music to a number of leading figures — including Dan Saxon and Mark James, the producers behind Simply Red. They knew she was an amazing talent and we started working on an incredible debut album — now we are about to unleash Britain's biggest new pop star in decades."

BBC producers were so moved with one of Tori's tracks that it was selected for this year's Festival of Remembrance and it has subsequently been chosen as the official record for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2007.

The publicity machine says: Tori's impending release has created a massive stir, and with such anticipation from industry and public alike, she bares a weight of expectation and is keen to live up to the hype. With a vibrant blend of soulful ballads, power-pop and R 'n' B hooks she is sure to do just that. Her heartfelt and meaningful songs appeal to a wide-spanning mainstream audience an - Motorbar


A new British singer is about to get to get a very spectacular launch. Nineteen year old Tori White will be debuting her new single in front of The Queen, Prime Minister Gordon Brown and millions of BBC1 viewers live from the Royal Albert Hall on November 10th. Rarely does a new artist emerge with such a weighty burden of expectation upon their shoulders.


Tori, who will be releasing the Poppy Appeal Record 2007, is the 'Vocaltech' music academy pick of the year. She follows on from Victoria Hart, the teenager whom George Clooney recently helped propel towards a multi-million pound record deal.


BBC producers were so impressed with Tori that her performance of 'Please Remember' was chosen for debut at this year's Festival of Remembrance.


Tori was first discovered by pop legend Jim Dooley. Having fronted 'The Dooleys', one of the world's most successful bands, Jim was well placed to judge this formidable talent. "I met Tori's father randomly at a hotel," Jim reveals ."He mentioned his daughter was a singer and gave me her demo, I was blown away. I knew she was going to be a star, I immediately agreed to be her executive producer, I played her music to a few leading figures - including Dan Saxon and Mark Jaimes, the producers behind Simply Red's millions of sales - they were the ones who were right for Tori. They said she was an amazing talent and we started working on her debut album, now we are about to unleash Britain's biggest new pop star in decades."


The Royal Albert Hall will be a suitably historic venue for Tori to be introduced to the nation. Tori told Glasswerk "It is an amazing place to be introduced to the country, singing at such an important event is a real honour, I will be nervous but I will be determined to give my very best performance."


Tori hasn't decided quite what she will say to The Queen yet but is sure she will think of something appropriate. "I have so much to prepare for the big day I haven't had time to worry about that yet! I'll ask if she enjoyed the song, if she says yes then that is all that I'll need to hear."


'Please Remember' is released on MBop Records on October 29th

Bio

Tori White is prepping her third single, 'Who If it's Not You', soon to be another gorgeous addition to the po-Diva's impression canon. Earlier in 2007, Tori White released two brilliant singles, 'Please Remember' and 'You Don't Scare Me At All', collaborated with The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and performed at the Royal Albert Hall in front of the Queen.

It is Tori's unique voice - displaying an astonishing mix blending Kelly Clarkson's power and Beyonce's delicacy - that first intrigued the ears of pop legend Jim Dooley. "I met Tori's father at a hotel, he mentioned his daughter was a singer and gave me her demo. I was blown away. I agreed to be her executive producer," Jim reveals. "I played her music to a few leading figures including Dan Saxon and Mark Jaimes, the producers behind Simply Red. They knew she is an amazing talent, so we began working on the debut. Now we are unleashing Britain's new pop sensation."

Tori is working on her debut full-length album, due out on Megabop Records in early 2008. Please sign the mailing list to keep up-to-date.
