Macca's Words of Wisdom

Karen Lowe returned to Radio Clatterbridge last week to talk about her fund-raising for Cancer Research UK and revealed how a former Beatle told her to never give up singing.

She started fund raising after a singing audition in 2010 when she met a woman whose father had died of cancer.

Singer Karen Lowe

Karen will be familiar to shoppers in Liverpool and Birkenhead. She can regularly be seen busking in aid of the charity. She also sings at official Cancer Research UK events.

Inspired by Olivia Newton John, Karen remembers mimicking her in front of the mirror with a hairbrush as a child!

However she bumped into Paul McCartney in Birkenhead when she was 15 telling her to "never give up" singing and always try her best.

Coffee Club host Steve Evans asked Karen into the studio when she said she could help teach him to sing.

"It is a comment she has since withdrawn clarifying she meant that I could help out at one of her fundraisers without having to exercise my vocal chords!" - Presenter Steve Evans

Karen will be the guest singer at the grand opening of Madelainartz Gallery in the Cherry Tree Centre, Liscard on 11th May from 1pm.

Steve says he has been invited to "help" sing but has politely turned the offer down!
