Connie Talbot, a six-year-old who landed the runner-up slot (losing to victor Paul Potts) on the 2007 series of Britain's Got Talent, was born in Walsall in the Midlands of Britain on November 20, 2000. She entered the Britain's Got Talent competition just for a family day out, but melted the hearts of the judges and the voting public with her pure, sweet renditions of "Over the Rainbow" and "Ben." Talbot eventually signed to Simon Cowell's Sony BMG label but was dropped before any product could be released, as the record company deemed Talbot much too young to be embarking on a recording career. A children's division of Rhythm Riders called Rainbow Records was set up specifically for Talbot, and her debut album, Over the Rainbow, was ready for release by November 2007. The album went gold, and was quickly followed by 2008's equally successful Connie Talbot's Holiday Magic, which was paired with a one-hour television special that eventually made its way to DVD. ~ Sharon MawerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
