SINGING sensation Isaac Waddington has hit the big time after landing himself a record deal with music boss Simon Cowell.
The 15-year-old, from Portchester, 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.
In fact he impressed 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 – and then offered him a recording contract with his record label Syco.
Isaac, of Castle Street, said that the last week, since appearing on Sunday’s final, had been like a whirlwind and that he had still somehow managed to find the time to sit his GCSE exams in between meeting with music moguls and putting on star-quality performances.
He was unavailable for comment last night but his Facebook page included the Syco logo and the words: ‘It’s official.’
His mum Imogen said: ‘Yes, it’s official. It’s fantastic.’
Now Isaac is hoping to be able to record some of his own music, as he is also a talented song-writer.
Imogen said she was immensely proud of Isaac but that she was relieved to hear that the record company wanted to allow Isaac some time to be a ‘teenager’.
She 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.
