Gary Bennett, the ex Sunderland striker, will be watching in anticipation on Wednesday evening as his daughter is up for Best British Single at the Brit Awards.
Janée Bennett, known in the industry as Jin Jin, is the song writer behind Jess Glynne’s hit single Hold My Hand.
Mr Bennett told SRNews: “I’m very proud of her.
“We could have only dreamed of something like this.
“Hopefully, she can win it but the most important thing is that she is enjoying what she’s doing.”
