Eliza and Bacharach to unite for festival appearance

SINGER Eliza Doolittle is to make a guest appearance at next month’s Henley Festival.

The 26-year-old will perform with Burt Bacharach, the evergreen singer-songwriter who will be headlining on the “floating stage” on Friday, July 11. They will sing just one number together.

Doolittle, who has had two Top 40 hits, said: “Burt Bacharach is one of my favourite writers ever, if not my favourite.

“I’ve wanted to sing one of his songs since I first heard his music and to be able to do it with him in his show gives me a feeling I can’t even describe.”
