Consuelo Bernardi: The B Sides


Jonathan & Charlotte

An inspiring story from Britain's Got Talent

Teenagers Jonathan & Charlotte rose to fame in the U.K. through the TV show Britain’s Got Talent. A TV show that I'm a little obsessed with—so many amazing auditions and stories of undiscovered talent.

From the first moment I saw their audition on YouTube I was an instant fan. It tugs at the heart strings, gives you goosebumps, and reinforces that whole 'never judge a book by its cover' saying...

Jonathan & Charlotte finished up the sixth season of Britain's Got Talent in second place at just 16 and 17 years old. The two were paired together by their vocal coach and they’ve been very open about how their partnership has positively affected their lives. Jonathan’s life has been filled with constant struggles with bullying and depression, and music has helped him develop confidence that he so desperately was searching for... 

When you hear his voice paired with Charlotte's you wonder how he ever doubted his natural, magical gift.

Jonathan & Charlotte's Together is a classical crossover album (currently available in stores and on iTunes), featuring traditional songs and classical interpretations of pop songs like Everybody Hurts by REM.

I love this album and have been listening to it non stop since I got it...and the back story just makes me love it that much more. It would make a perfect Christmas gift for any music lover on your list. And it has Simon Cowell's stamp of approval...really what more could you ask for?
