George Clooney gives pal's teenage daughter her big break

George Clooney is about to turn a pal's talented teenage daughter into a star after using her rendition of festive tune Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas in his new movie The Monuments Men.

The movie star was so impressed with 16-year-old Nora Sagal's performance at a party he attended, he insisted that she record the song for the soundtrack of his upcoming war film.

The Oscar winner says, "We wrote this Christmas scene knowing that we were gonna be using that piece of music. A good friend of mine, his 16 year-old daughter is just an insanely talented singer. I had her record that at her school and we just used it. It was spectacular."

Sagal is the daughter of Warner Bros. executive David Sagal.
