Jack Topping - Wonderful World

The Liverpool choirboy's debut is a mix of choral and popular favourites. Album of the Week, 18 November 2013.

It's been a meteoric rise to fame for 11-year old Liverpool choirboy Jack Topping, who became the youngest ever solo artist to sign to Decca Records.

For his debut album, Jack has recorded a selection of popular favourites (What A Wonderful World, Tomorrow from 'Annie'), arrangements of timeless classics (Ave Maria, Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring) as well as some nods to his home town - the Kop anthem You'll Never Walk Alone, Beatles' classics Let it Be and The Long and Winding Road, and folk song The Leaving of Liverpool.

A sweet and uplifting seasonal album from a thoroughly likeable lad who, so far, hasn't let his extraordinary success go to his head.
