Breaking into the world of Music
American Idoljudge and producer Simon Cowellintroduced his child group to the world. Angelisdraws on some of the same traditional and classical music of Cowell's other creation, Il Divo but its members are between the ages of 11 and 14.
Choral experts selected three boys and three girls after a two-year search for the best choral voices in the UK. The accomplished young singers come from such choirs as the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and New London Children's Choir.
On their self-title debut, which came out
November 6, the choristers sing their versions of Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" and traditional classic "O Holy Night." The young group teamed with producer Steve Mac, who has worked with Il Divo, Westlifeand Mariah Carey.
