    A Hardwick songwriter has gotten a taste of the big time, after a tune she penned appeared on the latest Kelly Clarkson CD, "All I Ever Wanted."

    Aimee Proal, 19, who was born and raised in Worcester, said she didn't intentionally write the song, "Save You," for Clarkson, but was thrilled when the mega pop star showed interest in the tune.

    Proal has been working at writing songs and singing professionally for about three years. She had been developing her song writing and went out to Los Angeles a couple of times to try to market herself. On one such trip, she got her big break.

    "I wrote this one song, called 'Save You," Proal said. "Ryan Tedder (songwriter and singer for the band OneRepublic) got it over to (producer) Clive Davis, who works with Kelly Clarkson. She heard it and wanted to sing it, and well, I just couldn't say no."

    Proal said the song was written for one of her close friends.

    "She unfortunately lost her mother and I kind of wrote that as an apology because I wasn't around - I was in L.A.," she said. "I just wanted her to know that I was still thinking about her."


    Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" debuted on the top of the pop charts. The album from the first winner of the hit TV show "American Idol" is receiving positive reviews from critics. Her last album, 2007's "My December," received a lackluster response.

    Proal said she's been pitching her songs to other popular pop and R&B artists as well. She has written songs for Leona Lewis and Rihanna. Only time will tell if any of those songs will get picked up.

    "You write for them and then sent it in to their A&R (artists and repertoire)," Proal said. "They probably have 300 songs they're looking at for their next record."

    Proal said while she definitely got lucky with "Save You," she's also worked hard for her achievements.

    "I built a lot of connections when I was going through my development deal," she said. "I just kind of kept close with all those people and met other people and it just kind of snowballed. It's really just taking what you have and running with it."

    Proal has had a couple of other songs recently recorded by other artists. Pop singer Celina Gomez and Axiz, a duo consisting of 15-year-old twins, have both picked up Proal songs.

    "(Axiz) recorded one of my songs," Proal said. "We'll see if it will make their record, but usually when they record one of your songs, it's a good sign."

    Proal said her songwriting ranges from pop and R&B to alternative. "The song that I did for Kelly, it's got more of like a Coldplay type of vibe," she said.

    Proal said she hopes her songwriting talents help advance her singing career.

    "I see the songwriting more as a door opener, and I want to continue doing that," she said. "Ryan Tedder started out as a songwriter, and now is the lead singer for OneRepublic. I plan on following in his footsteps."

    And while she hasn't turned into a mega star just yet, she sees bright things in her future.

    "Record companies are taking notice and are trying to get a hold of me," she said. "We'll se how far it takes me in my artist career - it's really starting to give me a buzz."

    Seeing as there is no album title and the rules have changed since this thread was opened in 2009 - I've renamed the thread and am moving this to General Artists.
