Jonthan and Charlotte at Lytham Proms

Concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor, have today announced who will be performing alongside Russell Watson at Lytham Proms Festival Weekend on Saturday 3rd August 2013.

Jonathan and Charlotte, the classical singing sensations who shot to fame in 2012’s Britain’s Got Talent, will delight the crowds on the Saturday evening. They performed in front of an audience of 14 million on TV, and most recently at the Military Awards in front of Prince Charles and David Cameron.

A spokesperson for Cuffe and Taylor said “Like the rest of the country, when we first heard these two perform on Britain’s Got Talent, we were blown away. Sometimes on shows like X-Factor or Britain’s Got Talent, you can often guess what to expect, whether it is going to be for entertainment value or they actually have a talent, but with Jonathan and Charlotte, it was hard to predict what would happen next. They were totally amazing, and sounded just like professional classical singers. Since their rise to fame they have been fine-tuned by some of the industries most respected experts, making them the perfect accompaniment for Russell Watson on the Saturday night.”

They sang their version of ‘The Prayer’, which was originally sung by Andrea Bocelli with Celine Dion, and even Russell Watson recorded his version with Lulu. So the plucky pair from Chigwell in Essex were pitching themselves with the greats

They met at state school in the music room and became close friends during their GCSE options year. Charlotte heard Jonathan singing Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, just after his voice had broken, through the wall.

‘And I thought who is that? Damn! That boy’s got vocal chords.’
