Following her spellbinding performance on Britain’s Got Talent, Beau Dermott – the girl with the big voice and big heart signed a major deal with Decca Records. She may be just 14 years old, but Beau’s astonishing voice is already insured for £1 million pounds.
Beau shot to fame when her electrifying audition on BGT earned her the golden buzzer from judge Amanda Holden – taking her straight into the live finals. Singing ‘Defying Gravity’ from the hit musical Wicked, the YouTube clip of her performance currently has over 26 million views. Leading lyricist Don Black says, “A lot of singers on these shows over-sing, with five notes when one will do. But Beau sings the songs as written. There is an honesty about them. She doesn’t overdo it.”
Beau was hand-picked by Dame Vera Lynn to open her 100th birthday celebration concert at the London Palladium last year and attended by HM The Queen. It was here that she caught the attention of Decca A&R executives when she performed a stunning rendition of ‘Glad Rag Doll’ – a song that Dame Vera had sung when she herself was a young girl.
Originally from Liverpool, animal-lover Beau lives with her family and two dogs. Beau is also proud owner of Prince a rescue pony she spends all her spare time with. Alongside recording her new album, Beau organised a charity concert in October 2017 in aid of Cancer Research UK, for vital research into all types of cancer, following her father’s own diagnosis, at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool. Beau’s father proudly enjoyed his daughter’s concert, but sadly lost his own battle just a few months later.
Beau’s album Brave draws from Beau’s passion for musical theatre and features the song that catapulted her to fame, ‘Defying Gravity’, as well as a host of classic favourites.
Something truly magical happens when 14-year-old Beau stands on stage and her angelic voice has already captured the hearts of the nation. Beau soars to the highest notes with grace, power and maturity that transcends her years.
