We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Antoine & Charlotte Jaconelli, runners' up in Britain’s Got Talent 2012, are to sign 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 for Mother’s Day - a free download of a special recording of ‘Time To Say Goodbye’.
It is expected that Jonathan will then release his debut solo album this Autumn 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.
Both Jonathan & Charlotte can also announce some very exciting tour dates across the UK.
- From February 15th, Charlotte will be the special guest of Richard & Adam from BGT 2013 on their national tour.
- From March 19th, Jonathan will be the special guest of Tenor Superstar Russell Watson on his national tour.
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 have recognised this in offering them solo record deals. There are very exciting times are ahead for these two such musically gifted young people.’

Jonathan Antoine has been advised by doctors to cancel all work commitments for at least one month. Jonathan, Charlotte and their families request the media allow them the appropriate privacy – and Jonathan the time and space to make a complete recovery – at this difficult time.
