  Alice Martineau Saturday 16 November 2002  
She's no different to thousands of other young hopefuls who dream of making a career in music.

For Alice the dream is now a reality after signing a record deal with music giants Sony and the release of her first single.
It's all happened incredibly quickly and against considerable odds because when Alice was born with cystic fibrosis she wasn't expected to live beyond the age of ten.
The illness is progressive and now aged 28 she needs an organ transplant. Alice tells Sheila about how it's affected her career.
