Collabro round off a 2014 they could only have foreseen in their wildest dreams with the special edition of their glorious No.1 debut album 'Stars'. Released on 8th December, 'Stars' now includes four brand new recordings from this year's winners of Britain's Got Talent.
The new album features the band's beautiful reworking of tracks 'Falling Slowly' from the smash hit musical Once, and 'Say Something', made famous as a duet by Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World.
In addition, Collabro have also recorded two lovingly crafted renditions of the Christmas classics 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' and 'White Christmas.' These join their already celebrated songs such as 'Let It Go' from Frozen and their cover of John Legend's 'All Of Me.' Indeed, each song on the album is carefully and exquisitely performed and recorded in the contemporary style that has seen Collabro win critical and popular acclaim nationwide.
Collabro formed in early 2014 through mutual friends and social media. In June they triumphed in the final of Britain's Got Talent with their version of 'Stars' from Les Miserables. Since then they have signed to Syco Music, and released their debut album, which hit No.1 in the UK on its week of release - while in December they will round off their whirlwind year with a performance at the Royal Variety show. Next year Collabro will head out on their first ever tour, which will visit packed-out theatres across the UK in January and February 2015.
Collabro are Michael Auger, Richard Hadfield, Jamie Lambert, Matt Pagan and Tom Redgrave.
