It seems ridiculous to think things like this actually happen in real life...

Many people think that fairytales only happen in books or films.

Well 'Starving' singer Hailee Steinfeld is living proof that magical things do happen in real life.

Hailee revealed that she signed a record deal within 20 minutes of randomly meeting a label executive.

Apparently, whilst at an event dinner with her mum, they got sat next to Charlie Walk, who is a label executive at Capitol. Hailee explained that within 20 minutes of them meeting Charlie, her mum had given him earphones and was showing him clips of her covers on YouTube.

Charlie was so impressed that he signed her there and then.

Check out the video of Hailee explaining the whole story on Jimmy Kimmel below...

 

It may help that she'd already been nominated for an Academy Award for her role in the highly regarded Western film 'True Grit', but still it's a nice story!
