'Former M People vocalist is top of the bill at Wolves legend's fundraising event at the ICC in Birmingham' - Birmingham Mail article:
Steve Bull says he is "bursting with pride" after pulling off an entertainment coup. The Wolves legend has managed to get one of his all-time favourite singers to top the bill at his latest charity gig. Heather Small, with her signature song 'Proud', will appear at Bull’s Black Tie and Diamonds Charity Ball at Birmingham’s ICC on Friday, September 27. "We have been lucky in the past with the calibre of performers, we’ve been able to attract," said former England striker Bull.
"The likes of Robert Plant, Alexandra Burke and Go West have gone down a storm. There’s no doubt it will be the same with Heather who is a truly world-class performer. People may or may not know I like my music. I’ve got quite wide tastes. And Heather has been in my CD collection since she was in M People. Sometimes you’ve got to search for the hero inside your glovebox! Her song Proud is right up there. And I’m bursting with pride that she is coming to the ICC, which is a perfect venue for this type of thing. To have my good pal Mark Rhodes hosting the night is an added bonus."
The children’s TV favourite and former Pop Idol finalist will indeed host the evening - organised by Steve Bull Events in aid of The Steve Bull Foundation - which will include a five-course dinner, entertainment, a charity auction and a raffle.
