Austrian girl in the cellar Natascha Kampusch is apparently interested in a singing career after taking part in her first song.

She is heard singing a female accompaniment to the man singing on the debut single ForGet You.

The song is part of an initiative by SAG7, an association dedicated to helping highly sensitive people (HSP), the term coined for a person having the innate trait of high sensory processing sensitivity with common signs being a sensitivity to loud noises, bright or fluorescent lights, and strong smells.

It has ended up a lot more in the public eye thanks to the works of Elaine N. Aron who measured the trait on an HSP scale, and estimated that a fifth of the population in equal numbers between men and women are highly sensitive people.

Natasha Kampusch is not directly involved with the group and is believed to have simply wanted to support the song although it was not revealed how she had heard about it.

The song is in English and she appears at 2:20 on the video, where her lines include: "Your life is like a rollercoaster" and "Your life is like purgatory" as well as "You'll never be a hero".

Natasha was kidnapped on 2 March 1998 and kept in a secret cellar by kidnapper Wolfgang Priklopil for more than eight years until she escaped in 2006. She wrote an autobiography that was also later made into a film called 3,096 Days and currently lives in the Austrian capital Vienna.
