The “One More” hitmaker, Stephanie Benson has disclosed that her very first performance in a club which got her signed a year later by Pete Waterman was witnessed by moviemaker Mel Gibson.
According to her she was just nineteen and was at Stringfellows, a nightclub in the centre of London, when she approached the table that had the owner and a couple of stars, including Mel Gibson, and asked to be given the chance to play the piano because she plays better than the one playing.
She narrated this to the controversial Delay on the Delay Show. Read it below.
“I was quite shy so a friend of mine told me to go and ask him if I could play. So I gathered courage and approached the table, apologized for interrupting and told him that I could do better than the girl playing the piano.
“He looked me up and down, and for a moment I thought he was going to tell me to leave. Surprisingly he told me to go and play. I obliged, and three months later, Pete Waterman saw me perform and I got signed a year later.”
