Cape Town - SA’s Got Talent 2015 finalist, and first ever Golden Buzzer recipient, Henno William has been signed by a New York-based music executive, reports

Music mogul Kevin Liles will work with 13-year-old Henno over the next 12 months. A team of music producers, songwriters, tastemakers and PR experts will also be working closely with the singer-songwriter to launch his career internationally.

"This is so epic," said Henno, who released his debut single Beauty Queen two months ago. "They just saw my Beauty Queen music video on YouTube, and were so impressed that they reached out to us," he told the entertainment website. 

Henno will travel to New York and Los Angeles a few times over the next couple of months until his family is ready to relocate to the USA, which will probably happen in mid-2017.

Artists currently managed by Liles include, amongst others, D'Angelo, Trey Songz, Fetty Wap and Highly Suspect.

Well done, Henno. Make us proud!
