The group, whose name was later shortened to OTV, was made up of:

Career

Their debut single, "Sacred Trust/After You're Gone", went head-to-head with Girls Aloud on December 16, 2002, for the Christmas number one spot. One True Voice lost out to the girls and had to settle for the #2 position. The group's manager, Pete Waterman, has speculated that the show was fixed against OTV, but has not said how.[1]

One more Top 10 hit followed, in the form of "Shakespeare's (Way With) Words", which reached #10 in the UK, in June 2003. A few weeks later it was announced that Daniel Pearce, who as arranger and co-writer of some of their songs had quit the group to pursue a solo career. The next day the group disbanded. The group appeared at number 32 in Chantelle's Top 50 Reality TV Stars, ahead of both Phixx and Clea who also appeared in Popstars: The Rivals.

One True Voice are currently recording a new album for release in may 2010
