I'LL DO IT MY WAY; Why Divine Dance Diva Sarah-Jane Is Terrified of Pop Fame
Byline: RICK FULTON
SARAH-JANE Scott is about to score a Top Five hit with her debut single - but is already talking about quitting.
The singer from Rothes, Moray - a 31-year-old mother of one - fronts the fast-rising dance act Divine Inspiration.
But she's nervous about fame and admits appearing on Top Of The Pops would be a "nightmare".
While other music hopefuls cite the long-running BBC 1 music show as a dream come true, Sarah-Jane is a very different kind of dance track singer from most.
For a start, she wrote the lyrics to Divine Inspiration's hit The Way (Put Your Hand In My Hand).
And she admits: "I'd love to follow Cathy Dennis, who was a pop star and then wrote songs for other people.
"My songs are really ballads in a similar style to Sheryl Crow - not dance music. But you have to get your foot in the door.
"We've got a three-single deal and hopefully we'll make an album, but that's as far as I'd like to go."
If her own dreams go to plan, Sarah-Jane will then stay in the studio, write songs and hopefully let other artists take the glory if they are hits.
She added: "I play guitar and I've been writing since I was 14 and singing all my life. Music would be a nice way to make a living but I'm not sure about the performing and fame side of it. That doesn't really interest me and it's all pretty scary.
"If we do Top Of The Pops, it will be a nightmare. I'm a 31-year-old mother of one and no spring chicken, not a 19-year-old wannabe."
Divine Inspiration, which includes DJ Paul Crawley, Lee Robinson and Dave Levin are hot news in the dance world. …
