Journalists, photographers and broadcasters are invited to a special performance by former X Factor star Bradley Johnson at Lea Manor High School for Year 8 pupils.

Recently confirmed for this year’s Love Luton 2012 Festival, Bradley has now signed an exclusive solo deal with record label Ingeny Music Ltd and will be launching his debut single this spring.

Bradley first made his mark on the music scene at the 2011 auditions for The X Factor, where his rendition of Ed Sheeran’s ‘A Team’ earned him a standing ovation.  After making it to the show’s boot camp stage, Bradley became part of the group Nu Vibe, who made it to the live finals.

Bradley has managed to secure many accolades, in a very short space of time, including two million YouTube views and over 33,000 followers on Twitter. He also starred in the Mark’s and Spencer Christmas advert with other X Factor Contestants and secured a number one hit with ‘Wishing On A Star’.

Bradley will be performing on Friday 6 July at Popes Meadow alongside The Wanted, up-and-coming boy band Lawson, Irish pop star Aisling O’Reilly and soca superstar SW Storm.

Bradley is in Luton this week promoting the Love Luton 2012 Festival and his debut single. He will be the first act sharing the love in schools across Luton and the region.
