According to the Evening Standard, pop star Jessies J, who starred in WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND when she was nine, has expressed interest in working again with Anddrew Lloyd Webber. She told ES, "I started out in musical theatre and he gave me my first break. I had a terrible time once and fell off the stage, and he made me feel better by giving me a signed Cats DVD." She continued: "I would love to work with him again but what I would really like to do is write a new show. I'd love to think we can get together when we're both free."
Lloyd Webber responded to the news with: "She has said she wants to work with me and she is more than welcome on any of my stages. It's something we need to sit down and talk about."

Signed with Universal, Jessie J came to prominence following the release of her debut single, "Do It Like a Dude", which peaked at number two on the UK Singles Charts. After topping the charts in nineteen countries including the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, and New Zealand with the song "Price Tag", she released her debut album, Who You Are (2011) which charted at number two in the UK. Other releases from the album included "Nobody's Perfect", "Who's Laughing Now", and "Who You Are" which all charted within the top 20 in the UK, but the release of fifth single "Domino" spawned more international chart success, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, and becoming her second UK number one.
