Biography

Andrew Johnston (born 23 September 1994) is an Scottish boy soprano who rose to fame when he finished in third place on the second series of the British television talent show Britain’s Got Talent and who is signed to the SyCo Music label. His debut album, One Voice, is due for release in September 2008.

Carlisle Cathedral Choir

Johnston joined the Carlisle Cathedral Choir aged six when Kim Harris, a teacher at his primary school, heard his voice and recommended he try out. He later became the cathedral’s head chorister. Performances with the choir included appearances in Hungary, Poland, Ireland and a solo in the Basilica in Budapest. In September 2008, shortly before the release of his debut album, he embarked on a tour performing in Norwegian cathedrals. The idea of the tour was conceived because the diocese of Stavanger is a partner to the diocese of Carlisle. This was Johnston’s last tour as a member of the choir, as choristers can only stay as members until the end of year eight.

Britain’s Got Talent

Aged 13, Johnston tried out for the second series of Britain’s Got Talent singing “Pie Jesu” and passed the audition. He was tipped as one of the favourites to win the show. Later, Johnston described his initial audition as daunting, saying that “it was scary singing in front of 2,500 people. I had never sang on stage before – then there was also Simon, Amanda and Piers”.
