Finalists from last year’s Britain’s Got Talent show will be performing at a Royston supermarket tomorrow, Friday.

The Neales, a Brummie dad and sons vocal group made up of Laurie Neale and sons James Neale, Dan Neale and Phil Neale, will perform their new single I’ll Be There live at the Royston Tesco Extra store at 1pm.

The group – who will perform three songs before chatting to customers at the Royston supermarket – are hoping their new single will reach number one in time for Father’s Day.

A percentage of sales will go to the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK and you can pre-order a copy on iTunes.

The family have a personal reason for raising money for the cause. Ten years before the group performed on the reality TV show, singing solicitor Laurie had a heart attack, which made him change the way he lived his life.

When they auditioned for the show, the group – who at one point reduced pop mogul and serial reality judge Simon Cowell to tears – received four ‘yes’ verdicts from judges for their emotional rendition of When Will I Be Loved? by the Everly Brothers.
