Niall Michael is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from West Yorkshire, England. Passion for music and performing came at the early age of 7 years old for Niall, when he was offered a scholarship to theatre school. He performed in many live productions with well known stars such as Billy Pearce, Hayley Tamaddon and Gaynor Faye. He was a part of these for 5 consecutive years and even played leading roles such as Michael Darling in Peter Pan. However, singing was such a small part of this for him since the productions mainly focused on dancing and acting. In the midst of finishing this chapter of theatrical performing, he found a video of the late singer Christina Grimmie in 2011 whilst sat at the family computer, and was endlessly inspired by her. She inspired him to start creating online covers which helped him find his deep love for music and singing, and has been a huge role model. These covers have accumulated 40,000+ views. Furthermore, in late 2016, Niall released his first ever original song, "Nobody Like You" as a tribute to Christina’s life and the many great things she brought into his life. The song was re-released in 2017 under his new artist name, ‘Niall Michael’ which is his first and middle name, also his late father's first name. Previously, Niall has won Red's 'Louder' competition, been crowned GetSungs ‘Artist Of The Month’ (an organisation set up by Gary Lineker’s son), and most recently, won Anne-Marie's ‘HEAVYOKE’ competition.
