Fly Away

  • Rebecca Ferguson has dreamed of being a singer since her childhood, but her music career initially consisted of a succession of disappointments and she decided to support her family by qualifying as a legal secretary. However in 2010 millions of viewers watched her get to the final of the X-Factor talent show, meaning at last her dreams were being fulfilled. Several of the tracks on Heaven document her transition from being a normal Liverpool girl to a thriving singer and this song finds her reflecting back on her time before X-Factor when she dreamt of becoming successful.
