'The Voice' winner Jermain Jackman wants to name his debut album 'Genesis'.
The 19-year-old London singer was crowned the winner of the show earlier this month, after beating finalists Sally Barker, Christina Marie and Jamie Johnson, and has revealed plans for his first record, which is inspired by the Bible.
He told BANG Showbiz: "We're just collecting songs and working with producers, we're striking while the iron is hot.
"I've very religious and I want to call my first album maybe 'Genesis' or something. It's the beginning of the Bible, a beautiful, wonderful and influential story.
"It's the beginning of something special and my first album is the beginning of an epic journey [for me], I want to acknowledge that biblical term."
The singer and Labour party activist is "in talks" with coach will.i.am for him to produce the album but insists it's "early days", although he is hopeful original material will feature on the new record.
He added: "I love song-writing and I'd love there to be original material on the album. I write songs at home with my twin sister, we write rhymes, if I get a flash of inspiration, I'll wake up with a melody in my head and I'll get my phone out and record it."
