Bars and Melody sign record deal with Simon Cowell

Tuesday June 17, 2014

Britain's Got Talent contestants Bars and Melody have been signed by Simon Cowell's music label Syco.

Charlie, 15 and Leondre, 13, came third in this year's series, losing out to opera singer Lucy Kay in second place, and singing group Collabro in first place. The duo first caught fans' attention in their first audition with an anti-bullying song, and automatically went through after Simon chose them as his golden buzzer act.

"Proud to Announce that @BarsAndMelody signed to @syco," revealed the boys' manager on Twitter. "#Proud thank you Mr @simoncowell #BarsAndMelodySigned."

"So excited!" added the boys on their Twitter account. The deal is initially for the release of one single, and will see the boys releasing the song Hope.
