About Richard & Adam Johnson
Welsh brothers Richard and Adam first burst onto the nation’s TV screens on Britain’s Got Talent, making it to the final in 2013 performing their classical crossover version of ‘The Impossible Dream’. The show established them as two of the greatest vocalists singing opera in this country.
They credit their “Nan” as being their biggest influence. When they were young, she played music by Caruso, Mario Lanza, and The Three Tenors and she encouraged them to sing along, building their confidence and encouraging them to follow an opera career. They honed their craft, playing live gigs and performing with the Birkenhead Operatic Society. When they won a local talent competition, the offers came flooding in and they began performing professionally on cruise lines before their big break on Britain’s Got Talent.
Having made it to the final, the boys signed a record deal and have since had a number one album, “The Impossible Dream” that remained at the top of the charts for four consecutive weeks, breaking UK records. A sell-out UK tour followed and a number five charting album titled “At The Movies” that competed with international artists including Dolly Parton! Their fourth album ‘Believe’ reached number one in the UK classical charts.
As they start a new chapter, with the increasing commercial appeal of classical crossover and musical theatre genres, Richard and Adam are focusing on a more contemporary feel and are planning a new album and tour for Christmas 2018.
