IN a week when a song proven in court to be a bla­tant pla­gia­rism (rip off) goes on to win Best Song in the 2015 Grammy like to warn any­body who ever gets a Grammy nom­i­na­tion to se­ri­ously ques­tion the in­tegrity of their mu­sic.

On that note, may draw your at­ten­tion to Beer, win­ner in the un­der-18s cat­e­gory of the Hilling­don’s Hid­den Tal­ent con­test held at the Compass Theatre,
