All that is gold will glitter someday... An amateur British band named "Pepper and Piano" proved this old saying with their surprising recent hit in the top ten download charts.

It all got started after the band's second ever public performance. The Manchester duo "Pepper & Piano" is formed by the 23-year-old singer Katie Pepper and the 30-year-old pianist Emma Alkazraji. They sang their self-penned track "You Took My Heart" in the semi-final of Sky's music talent show "Must be the Music." In return, the deeply moved audience quickly escorted those two girls to the final by public vote. After the show, their debut single "You Took My heart" started at one hundred and third place in the Live iTunes download charts and quickly shot up into the top ten. It's currently at number five.
