Britain’s Got Talent finalists SIGNATURE consist of two members Suleman Mirza & Madhu Singh. They have been performing together for over 10 years and Suleman for over 20 years. They met at university, were both selected for a dance show and decided to work together. The rest as they say is… well… history.
Both Suleman and Madhu share in the same values and ideas of performer excellence “striving to be the best”. So naturally that’s where the name SIGNATURE came from – if they perform on stage it is a mark of approval! As they have said many times in their public interviews, they dance to unite. Unite people from all types of different backgrounds and beliefs and ultimately be a means of happiness and joy.
SIGNATURES biggest success came when they performed on Britain’s Got Talent in 2008. They were the runners up in the LIVE Final of ‘Britain’s Got Talent 2008′, which aired on ITV1 on 31st May 2008 and was viewed by a record breaking 19 million viewers (including repeats) – a 64% share of the viewing public. SIGNATURE received praise from the judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Pierce Morgan and were huge favourites with the audience. Despite being runners up on the show from over half a million applicants, SIGNATURE were regarded by many as the true winners of the series. Their originality, innovative dance ideas, and humour such as the fusion between eastern and western dance styles, have universally recognised them as the premier dance entertainment group with Suleman as the worlds number one Michael Jackson dance tribute artist.
SIGNATURE has been given the official stamp of approval by Michael Jackson himself. On March 5th 2009 Suleman had the honour of meeting Michael Jackson at the infamous London press conference when Michael announced his “This Is It” tour. He was one of the very few people who had this privilege and it was here when Michael Jackson declared that he “liked what you do”. The Jackson Family have also become fans and have communicated with Suleman directly after SIGNATURE appeared on Britain’s Got Talent 2008 final.
No group appeals more widely to fans than SIGNATURE. Their past shows have attracted fans from as young as 5 all the way to 75 years old. They appeal to people of every nationality, background and class. With an average of 250 shows per year, two sold out UK arena tours in less than 10 months in 2008 and at one time 50 million accumulated hits on their YouTube videos, SIGNATURE are going from strength to strength.
Their clients have included the likes of Coca Cola, T –Mobile, X Factor, Simon Cowell, Elton John, Lakshmi Mittal (Forbes 3rd richest man), Nickelodeon, MTV and countless others to name but a few.
SIGNATURE have appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, performed in Vegas with David Foster, performed with many A-list Bollywood Superstars and with an array of celebrity friends; Chris Brown, Leona Lewis, Mcfly, Danni Minogue, Jay Sean, Alexandra Burke, JLS, Sugababes. They have also worked with celebrity choreographer Lavelle Smith Junior (choreographer to the likes of Janet Jackson, Beyonce Knowles and Michael Jackson).
