We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Antoine & Charlotte Jaconelli, runners' up in Britain's Got Talent 2012, have signed solo record deals with Sony Classical.
The pair, who sold more than a quarter of a million albums as a duo, now look forward to the next stages of their burgeoning careers.
As a thank you to their loyal fans Jonathan and Charlotte will be releasing a final recording together - a free download of a special recording of "Time To Say Goodbye".
Jonathan's debut solo album will be released in October, with Charlotte bringing her album out earlier, in June. Sony Classical will be supporting them in their dream of Jonathan becoming an operatic Tenor and Charlotte being inspired by her love of classic musicals and great ballads.
In a statement, Jonathan and Charlotte said:
"We have had the most exciting journey together ever since meeting at West Hatch High School in 2006 and are so happy for each other. To come second on BGT and sell over quarter of a million albums was beyond our wildest dreams. To now be offered our own solo record deals by Sony Classical is the most exciting thing ever and we are thrilled to be going back into the recording studio so soon. For those that voted for us, bought our CDs and saw us in concert - thank you. We hope to see you soon at our own shows. Love Jonathan and Charlotte".
Professor Jonathan Shalit, the pair's manager, said:
"Jonathan and Charlotte have the most wonderful individually special voices and I am delighted that Sony Classical has recognised this in offering them solo record deals. There are very exciting times are ahead for these two such musically gifted young people."
