Became an overnight singing sensation in 1985 as a soprano singing the song 'Walking in the Air' from the animation The Snowman.  Contrary to popular belief, his version was made for a toy shop commercial rather than the original animation which was televised in 1982 and recorded by choir boy Peter Auty.
As a child singer he performed for the Pope and The Queen of England and gave a concert for the Prince and Prioncess of Wales in their apartments.  He also sang at the wedding of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates.
Made a duet for man and boy with himself called 'What can you tell me?' by recording the first half when he was a soprano and the second after his voice had matured and he became a baritone.
