Affectionately named 'The People's Soprano' by fans, colleagues and the media, singer-songwriter Rebecca Newman stormed into number one in the Official UK Classical Albums Chart with her debut chart release in September 2014, outselling new releases by a number of major international stars in the process. In doing so, she has secured her position as one of the most exciting sopranos the UK has seen for a long time! Demand for her eagerly awaited new album was so great that on day one of release Amazon completely sold out following a live studio interview on BBC One Yorkshire and during the week HMV stores up and down the country also sold out. Rebecca subsequently toured with the UK's biggest selling classical artist, the tenor Russell Watson, on his Up Close and Personal Tour, between March and July 2015, performing to almost 50,000 people. She has also shared the stage with tenor superstar Alfie Boe, with Aled Jones, with Classic Brit award winners Blake, toured with the legendary Welsh entertainer Max Boyce and smash hit vocal group G4. You may have also caught Rebecca on BBC Radio 2, live on Weekend Wogan in July 2015, plus on BBC Breakfast and on BBC1 Songs of Praise. Rebecca's music is often heard on regional BBC radio, BBC Radio 2 and Classic FM so listen out for her!
Rebecca is truly one of the most hard working musicians you could meet. Before her chart success, Rebecca had already sold over 15,000 albums as an indepedent artist, headlined her own twenty date UK tour, appeared on ITV1, BBC1 and BBC Radio, sung the national anthems live on TV for several international televised sporting events and shared the stage with stars like Russell Watson and Aled Jones. With exciting live, TV and radio opportunities being added to the diary for 2015 and beyond, Rebecca is set to be incredibly busy both in the UK and overseas.
