3. An amazing young man named Will Martin from New Zealand, who absolutely wowed us in the theatre with his incredible voice and versatility, his stories and humour. An accomplished singer and pianist he did justice to the music of Sir Elton John and Billy Joel along with some classical greats.
And his first album, A New World, topped the UK classical charts - making him the youngest person ever to attain that honour. He now sings and plays all around the world and if you ever get the chance to hear this wonderful entertainer, don't miss him. www.willmartinofficial.com.
