Kristian Leontiou took part in a Q&A with fans at GMTV, where he was asked what the inspiration for writing his new single ‘Shining’ was. “The song is about when you’ve got a bad job or you get put down at school and it’s a message to all the people that put you down, telling them they haven’t seen the best of you and not to judge a book by its cover,” he said.

Pop newcomer Kristian Leontiou tells The Glasgow Daily Record reports he was stunned to see Dido in the audience at a live gig earlier this month despite her refusal to give up her time while recording new songs. “Dido heard my music while the songs were still demos because we have the same publisher,” he explained. “She heard the original material and took to it. I met her and talked about music. I never thought she would turn up to see me live. Dido is really busy and I know she had so much on that day yet she still took the time to come to my show. Afterwards she said the show was really good. I really like what she does and I respect the way she handles her career.”
