Former X Factor contestant Jonjo Kerr is set to release his debut single in the not so distant future after he collaborated with The Military Wives last year.
Jonjo, a soldier who rose to fame in 2011 when he auditioned for The X Factor and made live shows announced the news to his fans on Twitter saying: ''Whoo hooo my debut single is called You Are My World and will be with you all very very soon xxxxx’."
Jonjo is balancing his pursuit of a music career with his work as part of the army in Warminster, near Bristol. Speaking about Jonjo's music plans, his manager, TellyMix contributor Dean Maynard told us: ''We are meeting with record label next week to try to arrange a date for shooting a video and then it is all about getting pre-order information for iTunes.Then we can finally set a release date.''
"Depending on the feedback that we get to the single then JonJo will be hopefully heading back into the studio for two or three weeks to record an album. You Are My World was written by some Welsh songwriters called Elements and when we heard it we thought that it was right for Jonjo. Some people have heard about it and asked if it was a cover but the single and album will be all songs sang by JonJo only."
Speaking about his decision to start recording material, Jonjo explained: ''This is something that I have wanted to do ever since I came back from Afghanistan last year. It is hard to get into the music industry but I had a big lay-off when I had to go away with the Army, which was straight after the X Factor. I have added my vocals to the song and am just waiting for it all to be mixed together.”
We wish Jonjo all the best with his single and as soon as it is ready for preview, you can be sure to check back here for further updates!
