When not studying Biomedical Engineering at Glasgow University, you might find this 22-year-old singing as a soloist in church halls or with his family quartet, the Sunbeams. A big fan of the Cathedrals' George Younce, Colet has performed onstage with the Gaither Vocal Band, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, and the Taylors.
He has also auditioned for "The Voice UK" and surprised the judges during the blind audition by performing "This Ole House," the Stuart Hamblen-penned classic that has been recorded by everyone from Rosemary Clooney (for whom it was a No. 1 hit in 1954) to Hovie Lister & the Statesmen, the Cathedral Quartet, Shakin' Stevens, the Statler Brothers, the Bill Gaither Trio, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Loretta Lynn, Allison Speer, Brenda Lee & Dolly Parton, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and many more.
Colet's spirited performance brought a smile to the judges' faces and a rousing round of applause from the audience. He says, “I just had to do my best and let them know I had what it takes and I got some great remarks from the judges. I do like to surprise people.”
We can't wait to see what's next for this talented young man, and we hope you'll enjoy these videos of him performing. First, his audition on "The Voice UK":
And next, singing with the Gaither Vocal Band during the Alaskan Cruise!:
