Interestingly, you may come across adverts for a group called ANGELIS across the internet. This is Simon Cowell’s attempt at All Angels – six young teenagers (including the boy Chorister of the Year, Sam from Bristol, who won alongside Laura). They are releasing their CD a week earlier (on the 6th November), but have yet to appear on any decent TV programmes. Their website is at www.angelis-music.com
