The day Scarlett saw Mum was a pop star

CAROL Decker’s daughter didn’t realise how famous her mum was until she saw her singing in

CAROL Decker’s daughter didn’t realise how famous her mum was until she saw her singing in front of 10,000 people.

Scarlett Coates was 10 when she and her brother Dylan watched T’Pau’s performance at the first Rewind festival in Henley.

They were standing at the side of the stage when Decker invited them to join her and say hello to the audience.

Scarlett, who is now 16 and a student at The Henley College, said: “We just both came out and took a bow.

“There was a really good turnout. I remember looking out and seeing loads of people.



“I saw Mum in a different light after that — she’s definitely not just a run-of-the-mill parent.”

Scarlett is an aspiring artist with an interest in filmmaking, illustration and storyboarding and is currently studying for a BTEC in creative media.

However, she doesn’t see herself as a future pop star.

She said: “I’m more of a shower singer. I’ll only ever sing for myself, not for other people — I’m kind of shy.

“I’ve seen Mum at every single Rewind and lots of other shows. When you’ve seen one gig it’s a bit like you’ve seen them all.

“It’s not that I find them boring but it’s just part of ordinary life. It’s what she does for a living.”
