A TEENAGER'S modelling and singing career has reached new heights, with the release of a debut single.
Harriadnie Beau Phipps' cover of the Dolly Parton classic I Will Always Love You, is available now on digital download from her website.
The Whittlesey youngster's first album is also in the pipeline and will feature cover versions of ballads from the last 30 years.
The 15-year-old's mum Alexandria has been playing the single in her Rush A Buy Baby stores in Whittlesey and March since it was released.
Mrs Phipps said: "We have played the single in the shops and a couple of customers thought it was a cover by Leona Lewis. They could not believe it when I told them it was my daughter."
Harriadnie, a former pupil of the famous Sylvia Young Theatre School, has previously featured in fashion shoots for Tesco, Next and Dolcis.
Mrs Phipps said: "We lived in Henley on Thames when Harriadnie was younger and we run a hotel and had very influential people come in, such as George Harrison, Paul Daniels and Mary Hopkin. I sent Harriadnie to Sylvia Young's on their advice."
She has also won various singing competitions - and it was a competition on a cruise ship which resulted in Harriadnie recording her single.
Mrs Phipps said: "A country and western duo called Speed Limit (from March) heard her sing and got in touch with MJ Music Production. Since then, it's taken off."
Harriadnie, a student at Sir Harry Smith Community College in Whittlesey, hopes to one day be as big as stars such as Jessica Simpson, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss.
n Harriadnie's debut single I Will Always Love You is available from her website, www.harriadniebeau.com, and is priced £2.99.
