Club 2Gethr - Livin' The Dream

Club 2Gethr - Livin' The Dream
Next week sees the release of a catchy new summer pop single; Livin' The Dream.

The track was written and produced by Mike Stock, recognised as one of Britain’s most successful songwriters - most famous for having penned huge hits like Kylie Minogue’s ‘I Should Be So Lucky’, ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ by Rick Astley and ‘Too Many Broken Hearts’ by Jason Donovan.

The video for the song was filmed in and around Devon and features guest appearances from comedian/actor and caravan enthusiast Rowland Rivron, (playing Dad) - and ex-Eurovision, and former US Billboard Chart topping artist Nicki French (Total Eclipse of the Heart) plays the group's Mum.

We'll meet the young stars - Steph, Will and Jenni (aka Club 2Gethr) on today's show.
