TabBarButton font color change

This should be an easy one… but I just can’t figure it out.
I just want to make the font of the active tab of a TabbedComponent appear in red.

So I have this object
TabbedComponent tabs{ TabbedButtonBar::TabsAtTop };

And in the parent consturctor:

now, I thought I would use something like this:

class otherLookandFeel : public  LookAndFeel_V4
	otherLookandFeel() {};
	~otherLookandFeel() {};
	void 	drawTabButtonText(TabBarButton& button, Graphics& g, bool isMouseOver, bool isMouseDown)
		g.drawFittedText(button.getButtonText(), button.getBounds(), Justification::centred, 1);

In the parent:
otherLookandFeel feelRed;
And in the parent callback:

void Parent::changeListenerCallback(ChangeBroadcaster* source)
	for (int x = 0; x < tabs.getTabbedButtonBar().getNumTabs(); ++x)
		TabBarButton* button = tabs.getTabbedButtonBar().getTabButton(x);   		
		if (button ->isFrontTab())
			button ->setLookAndFeel(&feelRed);
			button ->sendLookAndFeelChange();

The callback code gets hit but it does not trigger the modified drawTabButtonText function. What am I missing here?

I just needed to replace drawTabButtonText with drawTabButton in order to trigger the LookAndFeel object and customize the button.
