Joseph Whelan narrowly missed out on the judge’s houses round of the UK X-factor, but this hasn’t stopped him gathering a huge following, For a start he is absolutely gorgeous, secondly he is obviously a devoted dad, and thirdly he has an amazing voice. After hearing that he had written some of his own stuff I decided to check youtube and I am so glad I did. His songs are beautiful the words are really well written and the melodies are superb. Watch his videos!
Go and download these songs from the itunes… let’s get this to number one.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you may remember me expressing a hate for the X-factor nation but I have been a bit of a hypocrite I’m afraid because this year I have been glued to the TV every Saturday night. Some of these acts do have genuine talent and seem to be working fairly hard.
Last week the viewer saw Robbie Hance a homless young man enjoy a great first audition. This would have been a great chnace to get him off the street and begin a better life. Yet, when he got to boot camp he didn’t even both to learn the words of the song. He’d spent the whole day sleeping. Why would you do that? It’s lazy and a waste of time there are many really hard owrking artists of all kinds out there writers, painters and musicians that never get that kind of oppurtunity, yet they work hard day after day and don’t give up.
Maybe he should learn a lesson from these people.
