Fresh from the success of their debut No.1 album, current reigning Britain’s Got Talent champions Collabro return with the spellbinding ‘Act Two’.
‘Act Two’ sees the band expand their musical horizons, recording some of the greatest songs that have influenced them as a band. The record includes some surprising re-interpretations of recent pop music’s finest moments such as Kodaline’s smash ‘All I Want,’ Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ and ‘I Won’t Give Up’ by Jason Mraz. There’s also a touching rendition of The Rembrandts’ world-famous ‘I’ll Be There For You,’ which was debuted on the boys’ tour at the start of this year.
From the world of film and musical theatre the boys take on the likes of ‘Music Of The Night’ (which won a Facebook fans’ poll of songs for the band to perform), ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ from Les Miserables and ‘The Circle of Life’ from ‘The Lion King.’
Following a huge sell-out tour of the UK’s theatres and auditoriums at the start of the year, 2015 has seen Collabro go truly global. Demand has led to appearances all across Europe and Asia, while they have recently signed to Sony Masterworks in the USA, releasing their first US album.
Michael Auger, Richard Hadfield, Jamie Lambert, Matt Pagan and Thomas Redgrave only became Collabro at the start of 2014 and it’s been a steady stream of incredible moments since then. Following their runaway Britain’s Got Talent victory last summer, Collabro have already released a No.1 Gold certified album and special edition follow up, performed at the Royal Variety Show for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and written and released ‘Our Story’, their first band memoir.
