Jamelia is one of Britain’s most successful black female entertainers. Her career has spanned over fifteen years after being signed straight out of school at 15 to one of the biggest major record companies in the world.
In 2004, she had three top 5 hits from her last album “Thank You” – the worldwide hit “Superstar” (no 3), “Thank You” ( no 2) and her co-write with Chris Martin, “See It In A Boy’s Eyes”, which reached No 5. Incredibly, Jamelia then stormed the top 10 again with “Stop”, her theme for the second Bridget Jones film.
Her UK success was emulated in Europe where she was a continual serious chart presence, and in Australia and New Zealand where she reached No 1. She also toured around the world with Destiny’s Child, Justin Timberlake and Usher.
Creatively for the future, Jamelia is focusing on being a coach on the Voice of Ireland which she believes will show the public a side to her they have not seen before.
Jamelia is also working on her next album and is currently in the studio working with various producers in both the UK and Atlanta.
Niall Breslin, or Bressie as he is now known, first came to prominence as lead singer and guitarist with The Blizzards, one of Ireland's most up and coming rock bands. Bressie's first 2 albums with the Blizzards both went double platinum in Ireland.
However in January 2010 he decided that he needed a new challenge. Bressie moved to London and began work as a writer and producer at 19 Entertainment, owned by Simon Fuller and home to Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
His own album was launched in September 2011. Under the name Bressie, 'Colourblind Stereo' is his first solo album. His debut solo single 'Can't Stay Young Forever' was a top 20 hit and also a huge radio hit. His rockier but similarly anthemic 'Good Intentions' is out now.
Born in Sligo, Ireland, Kian Egan is one quarter of Ireland's most successful boyband, Westlife. Having sold over 44 million records worldwide, had 14 number one singles and 7 number one albums, Irish super-group Westlife are celebrating over 14 years of success with the release of their 'Greatest Hits' on November 21st.
With two Brits, an MTV Award, a World Music Award, no less than four Record of The Years under their belt and an incredible back catalogue spanning well over a decade not many artists can compare to Westlife's extraordinary success.
In the UK alone they have earned the title of Biggest Selling International Band this Decade, scoring 10 multi platinum albums, the third highest number one single record in UK history (with only Elvis Presley and The Beatles ahead) and they also hold the crown for the Biggest Arena Act of All Time in the UK performing a record of 25 concerts at Wembley Arena.
