Jo O’Meara has released an unplugged version of the classic S Club track ‘Never Had a Dream Come True’ and it’s beautiful.
While a new chapter in her life and career is firmly underway, Jo is proud of everything she achieved with S Club 7.
Even in a pared-back acoustic style, ‘Never Had A Dream Come True‘ has all the hallmarks of a hit. With Jo’s powerhouse vocals, a timeless melody, and a heartfelt lyric, it’s both true to the spirit of the original and still relevant to Jo and her fans all these years later.
This new unplugged version is perfectly timed, as tomorrow represents the 21st anniversary of the release of the original song. Released in 2000, it went straight to #1 and spent six weeks in the Top 10 over the festive season. Its enduring popularity means that it has received over 63 million streams at Spotify, despite emerging long before the streaming era commenced.
Jo commented, “I am so excited to have re-recorded one of my favourite S Club songs! ‘Never Had A Dream Come True’ has always been special to me, so getting to go back in the studio and re-vocal it after 21 years was very special. I’m enjoying doing new acoustic stripped back versions of classic S Club classic hits.”
Another acoustic S Club favourite, “Don’t Stop Movin’’, features on her ‘With Love’ album. Blending modern pop, R&B, echoes of the ‘80s and a touch of Nashville country, the album presents a bright new start in Jo’s remarkable story. Arriving 16 years after her debut, the album showed that the vocal elegance that graced so many iconic S Club 7 hits had only grown more accomplished during her time away from the spotlight.
Jo’s passion for playing acoustically resulted in her recently announced details of her first-ever unplugged solo show. She will play PizzaExpress Live in Holborn, London on February 28th 2022. Tickets are available here.
