A 2019 with your favourite stars

Beau Dermott

Following her spellbinding performance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2016, Beau Dermott – the girl with the big voice and big heart signed a major deal with Decca Records. She may be just 14 year sold, but Beau’s astonishing voice is already insured for £1 million pounds.Beau shot to fame when her electrifying audition on BGT earned her the golden buzzer from judge Amanda Holden – taking her straight into the live finals. Singing ‘Defying Gravity’ from the hit musical Wicked, the YouTube clip of her performance currently has over 25 million views. Leading lyricist Don Black says, “A lot of singers on these shows over-sing, with five notes when one will do.But Beau sings the songs as written. There is an honesty about them. She doesn’t overdo it.”Originally from Liverpool, animal-lover Beau lives with her parents, older brother and two dogs.Beau is also proud owner of Prince a rescue pony she spends all her spare time with. Alongside recording her new album, Beau organised a charity concert in aid of Cancer Research UK, for vital research into all types of cancer, following her father’s own diagnosis, at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool.

Beau was hand-picked by Dame Vera Lynn to open her 100 th birthday celebration concert at the London Palladium earlier this year and attended by HM The Queen. It was here that she caught the attention of Decca A&R executives when she performed a stunning rendition of ‘Glad Rag Doll’ – a song that Dame Vera had sung when she herself was a young girl.

Beaus’s album Brave draws from Beau’s passion for musical theatre and features the song that catapulted her to fame, ‘Defying Gravity’, as well as a host of classic favourites. Something truly magical happens when 14-year-old Beau stands on stage, and her angelic voice has already captured the hearts of the nation and Beau soars to the highest notes with grace, power and maturity that transcends her years.

Tony Hadley

Tony went on to front 80s Romantics, Spandau Ballet, earning himself the accolade of being one of pop music’s greatest vocalists. The band had numerous chart topping singles and albums all over the world, including the epic “Through the Barricades” and of course the international number one “True” and the unofficial London Olympics theme “Gold”. By the mid-80s they were world-wide superstars however, relationships cracked and the band split in 1990. Following two well documented reunions, which generated the critically acclaimed rockumentary “Soulboys of the Western World”, Tony has now left the band permanently and returned to his successful solo career, writing, recording and performing. 

As a solo Artist Tony has performed across the world both with his band and with orchestras. In 2005 he was awarded a Gold Badge from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. 2007 saw him win a new legion of fans when he appeared as Billy Flynn in Chicago on the West End stage. In addition to his music Tony also presents his own radio programme on a Saturday night on Absolute Radio. 

Tony is a great charity supporter, regularly performing and raising funds. He has trekked the jungle, competed in Who Wants to Be A Millionaire where he did very well, and holds an annual golf day, all supporting childrens’ hospices, campaigns to fund medical research for sick children and degenerative conditions and small personal charities where his name can help make a real difference. 

In 2015 Tony had the great privilege of being invited to Buckingham Palace to meet The Queen. In 2015, Tony did a stint in the jungle on I’m A Celebrity, which he thoroughly enjoyed. In 2016 he contributed to the soundtrack for the British movie Eddie The Eagle starring Hugh Jackman, co-incidentally a fan. 2017 saw Tony invited by actor Gary Oldman to perform at the “Celebrating David Bowie ” tribute concerts in London & Los Angeles, taking to the stage with amongst others Sting and Simon Le Bon. 

This year will see Tony release his highly anticipated first solo album in many years, songs from which he will showcase on his February European Tour and subsequent summer UK and European festival dates.
