Britain’s Got Talent Finalists aiming for charity number one


The family four-piece who moved Simon Cowell to tears on Britain’s Got Talent is to release a single on Father’s Day in aid of the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

The Neales will release their first self-penned track I’ll Be There on independent label Zy Records with the full backing of all Tesco stores across the UK. As well as going on sale in the supermarket chain, the single will also be available for digital download.

The Neales are the four-part family harmony group that won the hearts of the nation during Britain’s Got Talent 2015. Made up of three brothers and their father, this group evoked tears, smiles and warmth as they made their way to the live final, finishing as the highest placed band in this year’s competition.

This time last year, the Britain’s Got Talent audience rose to their feet for a long and rapturous standing ovation as Laurie Neale and his sons Phil, Dan and James performed their rendition of the Everly Brothers When Will I Be Loved.

James Neale commented: “Ten years ago my dad had a heart attack, and he knew he had to change his life, and he loves singing. The three of us are here because we realise the reason he had that heart attack was because he ran himself into the ground trying to provide for us. So you’d have thought that when he asked us to come on Britain’s Got Talent to achieve his dream, we’d say yes, but it actually took three years of pestering” James revealed.”

Laurie Neale had a heart attack ten years ago while helping to move a piano at a music school near the family home in Solihull, West Midlands. He suffered sudden and severe chest pains and believes his life was saved by the actions of a school nurse who stabilised him before an ambulance arrived.
