Former Leigh Academy student is Number 1 in the UK iTunes pre-order album charts

Former Leigh Academy student Harvey Cantwell has continued in his quest to be the first British solo international teen sensation by releasing the video to his first single track ‘Holiday’. The track was the number 1 in the UK iTunes pre-order album charts on iTunes and is currently number 3 in America!

Singer, Harvey has become a social media phenomenon on platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. He has amassed over 1.2 million Instagram followers as well as over 800,000 on and continues to impress all over the world.

Harvey left The Leigh Academy in 2015 and initially found fame as a presenter on BBC’s Friday Download before going on to complete a UK tour with Little Mix. During the past 18 months, Harvey has performed all over the world on tours alongside musers and friends such as Loren Gray, Blake Gray, and Nate Garner.

Leigh Academies Trust would like to support Harvey in his quest to break into the UK album and single charts by encouraging our current students to download his new single via iTunes. Students can download the EP (5 songs) and get the track ‘Holiday’ straight away. The other 4 songs will be available from Tuesday 25th July.
