“This was the year we were again in the process of changing ownership to a company that didn’t really want us; A very dark time. Then along came Little Voice which inspired me into moving forward with new vigour and determination” – Pat Church
Shy Little Voice (LV) lives the life of a recluse listening to her late father’s old records and driving her abusive, loud-mouthed mother, to distraction. However, LV sings the songs of the great divas such as Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, and Dame Shirley Bassey and is overheard by one of her mother’s loathsome boyfriends, the disastrous dead-end talent scout Ray Say, Gambling everything, Ray Say forces LV to appear at a local run-down, seedy nightclub run by Mr. Boo. There LV meets the equally shy Billy, a pigeon-racing telephone engineer and they form a tentative, gentle friendship. The big night finally arrives and everything is in readiness, the band, the club, and even a big agent from London, but what about LV?
