Britain's Got Talent Duo Richard And Adam Top The UK Charts Four Weeks In A Row With Debut Album The Impossible Dream



NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The classical singing duo Richard and Adam, best known for their appearance on reality show Britain's Got Talent, top the UK sales chart for the fourth week in a row with their debut album, The Impossible Dream.

The album, which has gone gold, continues to chart higher than The Civil Wars and John Mayer releases. It is the first recording since Adele's 21 to spend four consecutive weeks at the top of the UK album chart, surpassing Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience for the most consecutive weeks at number one this year.

The Welsh brothers just signed to Sony Masterworks International. The Impossible Dream will be released in the US by the Sony Masterworks imprint Portrait on October 29, 2013.

Prior to Britain's Got Talent, the "Pannini Pavarottis" as they were branded, worked at a local sandwich shop in North Wales where they would sing to customers whilst serving food.  Richard and Adam, whose final performance on "Britain's Got Talent" was interrupted by an unruly choir member pelting eggs at judge Simon Cowell, came in third place on the show. Despite the interruption the brothers gave a stunning performance of "The Impossible Dream."

Sony Masterworks comprises the Masterworks, Sony Classical, OKeh, Portrait, Masterworks Broadway and Flying Buddha imprints. For email updates and information please visit
