Hello, I'm Cormac, I'm 13 and I love singing. When we had to stay at home a lot! I couldn't visit my family in Northern Ireland, so my Mum posted videos of me singing onto YouTube for my Nannie to watch. One day, a record label got in touch, that was a nice surprise! I got to record an album
'Hear My Voice' was released on Decca Records in December 2020.
2021 was a busy year too. Lockdown was over, it was good - bye to Decca but I really loved recording songs. Sooooooooo...... with lots of help from my Mum and Dad, I went back to the studio but as an independent artist this time, it was brilliant. I'd only been to London once before. I recorded 4 new songs, there's links to stream them on the homepage, I hope you enjoy them. A BIG shout out to pianist and Producer, Dominic Ferris who believed in me and gave me the confidence to record these new songs without the backing of a record label. In November I made it to the final of 'BBC Young Chorister of the Year' Held at Salisbury Cathedral, even though there was no audience, it was a real priviledge to sing in such a beautiful place.
2022 has been far from dull! The best way to keep up to date with all that's going on is to subscribe to my newsletter.
Thank you to everyone for supporting me, I couldn't do it without you.
I'd a great day when I did my audition for Britain's Got Talent. It was really exciting to go to London. I sang Snow Patrol's classic 'Run' at The London Palladium it was a dream come true. Backstage, I was really nervous about singing in front of the judges and there were soooooooo many people, my legs were shaking, I was sure everyone would see! But I did it, I didn't forget my words and it is an experience I will never forget.
Here's a selection of my favourite videos. I'm really excited that 'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables' went viral 2 weeks ago! Picked up by 'The Music Man' and posted on his Facebook page, it's had nearly 3.5 million views on his page, this is just incredible and such a lovely surprise. I am very proud that this beautiful song has been enjoyed again by so many people, thank you for watching and thank you to the brilliant team that helped me make it so special. I love singing all my songs, especially ones with really high notes, I won't be able to reach them forever!! and I'm very excited to see what the rest of 2022 has in store for me.

My new single. Recorded in May 2022 at Masterchord Studio, London. With the best piano ever!
This is a very special song and it has taken on a whole new meaning for me in current times.
Talking all about the songs I recorded in 2021, including my new single, 'Empty Chairs at Empty Tables'.
I kept it v simple this time. My hope is the words of this song will create pictures all by themselves
My favourite place
I chose 'Acting for Others' because of just how important, singing, music and acting have become to me. This is my thank you to all the wonderful people that I meet along the way.
In the all too recent past, orchestras were silenced, costumes were mothballed and theatres were closed. Hugely impacted in the last few years 'The Arts' remained stoic throughout but the talented people, who work in this industry, had no choice but to stay at home, their livelihoods lost to a global pandemic.
Steeped in the roots of musical theatre this beautiful song from 'Les Miserables' took on a whole new meaning for me. As we continue to grapple with the aftermath of corona virus our battles may be different but the outcomes are sadly the same. Some who used to sit at our tables are no longer with us and through music, we can remember those whose chairs stand empty having lost their own battle with COVID -19.
'Acting for Others', provide financial and emotional support to all theatre workers in times of need through the 14 member charities.
So far I've raised nearly £2500. I smashed the original target of £1000 in the first few days, people's generosity is incredible. I hope you enjoy listening to my interpretation of this beautiful song and you are very welcome to donate if you would like to. Thank you.DONATE
