Junior Peter topped the UK iTunes chart last year with his debut single, Slide, and went on to do his first live gig in the summer.
Promising debut for Junior
Junior is the 17-year-old son of singer Peter Andre and former glamour model Katie Price. He has five half-siblings from his parents' other relationships, and his parents met on the popular television show I'm a Celebrity back in 2004.
Like his father, Junior is pursuing a professional career in music. The aspiring star made his music debut last year and has since gained a lot of attention with his music. He topped the UK iTunes chart with his debut single, Slide, and went on to perform his first gig in the summer, reports the Mirror.
The single was number one on the UK iTunes chart, beating popular artists like Harry Styles and Lady Gaga. After signing his first record deal with Columbia Records, Junior put in a lot of hard work and dedication into his project, which has been appreciated by his fans.
Peter and Katie Price, Junior's parents, have been supportive of their son's success in the music industry. When Junior signed his first record deal, Peter was present by his side and expressed his happiness for him on social media. In an Instagram post, Peter said:
'I’m so happy for him. The passion and dedication Junior has put into this project is incredible, and we can’t wait for you to hear it.'
According to OK! Magazine, Junior is not the only child in the family interested in music. His younger sister, Princess, has also expressed her interest in pursuing a career in the music industry. However, she's currently focusing on her education and hasn't made any public announcements regarding her future plans.
