19-year-old Jonathan Antoine hit the number one spot on the Official Classical Artist Album Chart with his debut solo album Tenore this weekend becoming the youngest tenor to hit the top of the chart.
Tenore also reached number 13 on the main pop chart during yesterday’s countdown. Jonathan says “I am absolutely overwhelmed. I can’t believe how awesome all the fans are. Thank you so much”.
Jonathan rose to fame as one half of duo Jonathan & Charlotte on Britain’s Got Talent. The two decided to go their separate ways and Jonathan has seen his career soar to new heights since being dubbed as Britain’s “Teenage Pavarotti”.
Earlier this year Jonathan was asked by Placido Domingo to be his special guest at his closing night of this year’s iTunes Festival at the Roundhouse, London.
Jonathan has just completed a very successful balcony tour around the UK and you can see him performing at the Classical Spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall from 20-23 November and the Last Night of the Autumn Proms at Southend on 30th November 2014.
