SA’s Got Talent 2015 finalist, and first ever Golden Buzzer star, Henno William has been signed by a New York-based music executive, Kevin Liles.
According to e.tv, the music mogul will be responsible for launching Henno’s career in the United States and internationally, through a team of music producers, songwriters, taste makers and PR experts.
“This is so epic,” explained Henno in a statement on the broadcaster’s website.
“They just saw my Beauty Queen music video on YouTube, and were so impressed that they reached out to us.”
Henno, who released his debut single, Beauty Queen, two months ago, is set to travel to New York and Los Angeles a few times over the next months until his family is ready to relocate to the USA.
But not to worry, the 13-year-old is not planning to neglect South Africa anytime soon.
It is said that he will still be available to perform at festivals and on special occasions in the country within the next year.
Artists currently managed by Kevin include, amongst others, D’Angelo, Trey Songz, Fetty Wap and Highly Suspect.
