'Holding Onto Heaven' hitmaker Foxes, whose real name is Louisa Rose Allen, could not believe it when Pharrell Williams asked her to support him on tour

Foxes was starstruck when Pharrell Williams asked her to support him on tour.

The 'Holding Onto Heaven' hitmaker, real name Louisa Rose Allen, is a huge fan of the 'Happy' singer and still can't believe he personally asked for her to be his support act on his European tour.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I couldn't quite believe he knew who I was. He said he was a really big fan, he loved my sound and that I was really unique. I did this cover of his song 'Happy' and we chatted about that. He made me feel really comfortable, he's so chilled.

"I remember being a kid and just looking up to him and thinking he's just the king of music."

It's a big year for the 25-year-old star, who will make her acting debut in an episode of the upcoming eighth series of the hit BBC sci-fi drama 'Doctor Who' but she admitted she initially had some reservations.

She explained: "It's more singing than acting. That's why I'm doing it. Acting isn't something I thought I would get into.'


Musical moniker of London-based artist Louisa Rose Allen, in the La Roux/Ellie Goulding mould.
