FORMER WILLIAM EDWARDS student Paul Turner has become an overnight singing sensation in Holland.
Paul has got to the final stage of the RTL.NL programme “The Voice” and he really seems to have captured the Dutch fans imagination.
Many of the dutch fans like his rasping soul voice, his Bon Jovi-ish image and his stage presence.
Paul has over 85,000 fans on Twitter and his name is on everyone’s (tu)lips in the country.
For the finals, each artist has a single on i-tunes and it is now a competition to see who gets the most downloads.
Paul’s single is the Queen hit: “Don’t Stop Me Now”.
Paul, 25, went to Stifford Clays Infants and Juniors, then up to William Edwards. After that he went to the Collins school for Performing Arts in Romford before treading the boards in shows such as Joseph and We Will Rock You.
Indeed, it was while on tour with We Will Rock You in Holland that he found out about “The Voice” and decided to audition. You have, as they say, to be in it, to win it.
