Shropshire singing star Melanie Nakhla and her girl band All Angels have been asked to write and compose a new UEFA Champions League theme song, it has been revealed.

The 22-year-old told of the approach which she described as "really fantastic news" at the 2011 Classic Brit Awards last night.

It is not yet certain whether the band will be performing the new theme live when Premiership giants Manchester United take on newly-crowned Spanish league title winners Barcelona in the final at Wembley on May 28.

But Melanie told the Shropshire Star: "We are in the process of composing it and arranging it at the moment. It is something we are working on in collaboration with the producer of our EP Starlight."

The classical crossover quartet, also including Daisy Chute, Rachel Fabri and Charlotte Ritchie, wowed the red carpet with their patriotic Union Jack outfits by young, trendy fashion boutique Traffic People, which they said were inspired by the royal wedding.

Some of the world's most illustrious artists and musicians were at the ceremony, formerly known as the Classical Brit Awards, hosted by singer-turned-presenter Myleene Klaas, which included performances from Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins.

Il Divo, the brainchild of Simon Cowell, were hailed artists of the decade.

A posthumous honour was announced for the late composer John Barry, best known for his work on the James Bond films, and Dame Shirley Bassey paid tribute with a performance of Goldfinger.

Melanie said: "I was really happy for Il Divo. They sort of paved the way for us."
