Along with Talbot's third album, a television special, entitled Holiday Magic, was produced by WVIA.Holiday Magic featured performances of all of the songs from Connie Talbot's Holiday Magic, and was available to all PBS stations shown in November and December 2009.The United States album is dedicated to the Toys for Tots campaign, of which Talbot has been named the child ambassador.
Her second album, Connie Talbot's Christmas Album, was released on 24 November 2008, her third, Holiday Magic, was released on 20 October 2009 and her fourth, Beautiful World, was released on 26 November 2012.
After his victory, series 2 winner George Sampson spoke of his participation in the first series, where he was knocked out before the live shows, saying "I don't think I had any shot of winning last year ...
The game was to feature 15 songs from Over the Rainbow, allowing players to sing along with a computer-generated image of Talbot or against other players in a karaoke mode.
News was also released of a one-off Christmas special to be shown on ITV1 in the days leading up to Christmas, featuring footage of Talbot's journey to America and a "secret concert" at her primary school.
We think they'll probably wait and promote the album later this year.
It's a shame, but they can still get the album in Asia and the US."In April 2009, Talbot again travelled to the US to publicise her new single, a cover of "I Will Always Love You".
It's completely up to her whether or not she wants to do it.
I can't believe it, though."Sharon Mawer of Allmusic praised Over the Rainbow by saying "She can sing, for a seven-year old, and most of the notes (if not all of them) are in the right order and sung to the right pitch; the timing is fine too".
Despite its negative critical reception, Over the Rainbow has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide and reached number one in three countries.
Since the initial album release, Talbot has performed publicly and on television in Europe, the US and across Asia, where her music had gained recognition through You Tube.
She is the perfect person to inform the public of the millions of less fortunate children who may be overlooked this Christmas holiday season, unless people step up to donate a toy or make a cash contribution.
