From factory worker to singing sensation – Russell Watson
Russell Watson never intended to go into singing. He left school without qualifications and went straight into a manufacturing plant, where he was trained to make nuts and bolts. It was only when the mundane nature of the work drove him to enter a talent competition on local radio that his true talent was unleashed. Coming in first out of 400 other contestants set him on the path to becoming one of the most renowned classical singers in the world. Russell Watson, since his days in the factory, has been invited to sing at performances that have been put on for the likes of former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush, as well as The Queen, Prince Charles and the Emperor of Japan. In addition to this, Watson is an ambassador for both the Prince’s Trust and the Duke’s Fellowship Charity in the UK, singing at many prestigious events to raise money for charity.
