London (ANI): Britain's Got Talent star Faryl Smith has teamed up with late opera great Luciano Pavarotti for a duet. The Italian tenor's vocals have been added to a recording of 'O Holy Night" by the 14-year-old schoolgirl, thanks to computer wizards.
Producers now hope the recording will help super-sized maestro, who died from cancer in 2007, make a posthumous appearance at the top of the Christmas charts. "Faryl is thrilled - she never thought she'd get the chance to sing with Pavarotti and now she has," the Sun quoted a source as saying. "The technology is note-perfect and it sounds as if they're really there together," the source added.
The track has been added to the teenager's new album 'Wonderland", which is tipped to go head to head with Il Divo and X Factor runner-up Rhydian Roberts for the No1 spot. "X Factor has been Christmas No1 for years and it will take something really special to challenge it, but this could be it," the source said. "Pavarotti was a huge name and Faryl is a rising star. It's a perfect combination," the source added.
