I’m delighted to say the reaction to my ‘Voice’ appearance continues to be positive.
Wherever I go the compliments roll in but they’re usually followed by the same question, ‘What made you do it ?'’
Well it’s simple. A few years ago the renowned Tenor and Vocal Coach David Maxwell Anderson, agreed to give me a series of lessons.
As the course progressed I could feel my singing voice, long neglected, beginning to improve. A couple of years later I realised I had to find a way to tell the world I was becoming a proper singer.
I applied to audition under my real name, Bernard Quinn. I didn’t tell my family or my manager in case they tried to talk me out of it. The auditions continued and eventually I found myself singing to an audience of seven million people on BBC 1.
The response has been amazing and I have now released my album, 17 of my favourite songs headed by “The Impossible Dream”
