And so it came to the attention of record label Universal.

Ian Thomas not only became a famous singer, he was also in demand as an actor and a model, he had his own brand of clothes and appeared in several sitcoms in Belgium.
2,013 became even more important in this teen idol's career, Ian Thomas has always wanted to release his music world wide and to do s he surrounded himself with a new management team , Ian Thomas even started his own record label, IT Records.
Not bad for a 16 year old.
