ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Eight-year-old "Britain's Got Talent" finalist Connie Talbot has been named child ambassador for the 2009 Marine Toys for Tots campaign, her record label said.

Connie will also dedicate "Holiday Magic," the album she is releasing next month, to Toys for Tots and donate part of the proceeds to the organization, the AAO/Reality record label said in a release.

"The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is extremely proud and excited to have Connie as our youngest ambassador ever," retired Marine Corps Major Bill Grein -- vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation -- said in a statement. "She is the perfect person to inform the public of the millions of less fortunate children who may be overlooked this Christmas holiday season, unless people step up to donate a toy or make a cash contribution. Her angelic looks and voice will remind everyone of the innocence of children. And they all deserve to experience the magic of the holiday season! I hope she sells lots of CDs and raises a lot of money and awareness for our children."

"I'm completely proud for AAO and Connie to be part of this great cause," added Peter G. Kuys, AAO chairman. "Not only that, but I believe that Connie epitomizes what Toys for Tots stands for and will do the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots foundation proud. We here at AAO/Reality will support that with all of our hearts."
