Having won the hearts of the judges and viewers on the ITV talent show and earned the support of the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, 14-year-old chorister Malakai penned a deal with Universal Music earlier this year.
Of his chart-topping success, Malakai says: “I can’t believe I’ve got a Number 1 album! It was so much fun to make as well. Thank you everyone for buying it. And now it’s the school holidays too!”
Martin Talbot, Chief Executive, Official Charts, adds: “What a year it has been for Malakai – first he became a superstar on Britain’s Got Talent and now he’s topping the Official Classical Artist Albums Chart. This huge new star for the classical world has truly arrived. Congratulations Malakai!”
