SINGING sensation Isaac Waddington has hit the big time after landing himself a record deal with music boss Simon Cowell.
The 15-year-old, a former pupil and head chorister at The Prebendal School in Chichester, appeared on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and made it through to the finals with his spell-binding musical performances of Billy Joel classic She’s Always a Woman and George Michael’s I Can’t Make You Love Me.
The Portsmouth youngster wowed BGT boss Simon so much, that immediately after the show had finished, Simon drafted Isaac in to play at his summer charity ball – the Together for Short Lives Midsummer Ball – then offered him a recording contract with his record label Syco.
Since appearing on the final, Isaac said the last week had been like a whirlwind - yet he still managed to find the time to sit his GCSE exams in between meeting with music moguls and putting on star-quality performances.
Isaac’s mum Imogen said: “The management have been so lovely. The president of Syco was really sweet and said that they want Isaac to be a teenager, go to college and write some music and enjoy himself. As a mum that was lovely to hear. It has been brilliant.”
Isaac also announced on Twitter that he has signed to Roar Global management company, after coming fifth in the show
