Lucy Kay, the soprano who cast a spell over the excitable live audience on TV’s Britain’s Got Talent, has been signed by Sony Classical in a ‘multi-album deal’. The 25-year-old from Leicester studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and sang an abridged version of Puccini’s ‘Vissi d’arte’ on the show on April 12, showcasing the tonal and technical potential in her attractive young voice and immediately securing the dumbfounded endorsement of the judges.
‘Lucy has the natural talent and ability to be a worldwide star,’ commented Mark Cavell, Senior Vice-President of Sony Masterworks. ‘We look forward to continuing her amazing success story in the USA and around the globe.’
A spokesperson for Sony Classical in the UK said that repertoire and scheduling for the albums were ‘still being discussed’.
