21-year-old Ben Kelly from Northern Ireland wowed the coaches in his Blind Audition with a powerful performance of Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’, accompanying himself on the keyboard. All four turned their chairs. He picked Jessie. His dream starts here.
Ben studied music and has since played in clubs and bars and on Youtube - where his pop/R&B performances (and nice bow-ties) have notched up over 1 million views. Now, as an artist on The Voice, he hopes for superstardom.
