I am keeping my fingers crossed for the voice success: Claudy born teacher


The Voice is a popular UK based singing talent show and the participant called Colleen Gormley from Claudy in Northern Ireland has her fingers crossed as she hopes for success. Twenty-eight year old Colleen was fond of singing ever since she was a child and she pursued her passion by taking Music Education at the Trinity College in Dublin. She has had the experience of singing at several masses and prestigious occasions at famous locations. The Voice UK is one of the most famous singing competitions of the world where Colleen showcased her singing talent in front of celebrity mentors like will.i.am, Paloma Faith, Boy George, and Ricky Wilson.

It is interesting to notice that how Colleen still has her passion intact, even when she teaches for a living. She is one of the most popular teachers at Notre Dame School and also married to a devoted husband.

The story of how Colleen Gormley was approached by the The Voice in London is an interesting one. She was discovered by one of the researchers at The Voice UK while she was performing as a singer/songwriter at a cafe in London. The researchers were impressed by her talent and creativity and she was immediately asked to audition for The Voice UK.

Colleen was quite nervous about her audition and was given the song ‘When You Say Nothing’ by The Voice team to perform. The reason for nervousness was that she wasn’t the kind of singer to sing a slow romantic song, as her singing mostly had country influence. However, when she went on a stage, Colleen Gormley felt a sense of calm and pulled off the song with confidence leaving the judges impressed.

We all have dreams intact within us, and it is important to keep those dreams alive because the opportunity to fulfill those dreams can appear at any given moment.
