“Wishing on a Star” is a original 1978 hit single by Rose Royce for Whitfield Records. The song was rerecorded by Miriam Stockley and used as the theme tune to the US TV series “The 10th Kingdom” released in 2000.
Included on their second album, Rose Royce II: In Full Bloom, “Wishing on a Star” is a slow ballad written by former Undisputed Truth member Billie Rae Calvin and produced by Norman Whitfield. The lyrics concern a woman longing for the return of an ex-lover so that they can resume their relationship. The original version of “Wishing on a Star” was not a big hit in the US, peaking at number 52 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
The song was a big chart hit in the United Kingdom, reaching number three in March 1978. The parent album, In Full Bloom, was also successful as a whole. The single was re-released as the X Factor’s charity single for 2011. The single features JLS and One Direction.
