10 year old Heather Russell has taken the world by storm after her YouTube video went viral this week.

The little star has a voice beyond her years and her fantastically soulful rendition of Every Step of the Way has taken the internet by storm.

The video was posted in July last year, and has attracted the attention of Grammy-winning producer, Rob Fusari, who has signed up the little singer.

The video shows the young girl, accompanied by her dad on acoustic guitar, singing and already has over 85,000 hits, in a story similar to that of US pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Bieber, 16, was spotted on YouTube after his mum had posted videos of him singing and hasn’t looked back since, releasing a movie charting his rise to fame this week.

Russell’s mum confirmed that a deal had been made, and added, ‘We are currently recording Heather’s record for she has already signed a record deal,’

‘You Make Me Feel Okay’ and ‘Everytime I Close My Eyes’ have already appeared online and it seems anticipation of her debut album is growing by the click.
