BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT’s Lucy Kay will return as the Narrator in the upcoming 2017 touring production of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT, starring X FACTOR winner Joe McElderry, from 24th January.
Lucy Kay scored her first number one album in 2014, after her stunning debut album ‘Fantasia’ shot straight to the top of the Classical Album Chart. The singer, originally from Leicestershire, shot to fame and captured the country’s hearts as runner up on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2014. Following her success on the show, Lucy also recorded the song ‘Flower of Scotland’ with the band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Navy. Lucy was also a special guest on Andrea Bocelli’s 2014 tour.
