Anglesey singing sensation Gruffydd Wyn Roberts has announced that he will perform at Bangor Cathedral on 18 October, a concert in aid of North West Cancer Research.
The singer who reached the Final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2018 also received Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer and narrowly missed out on a place on the podium in the final. During the series he received widespread acclaim for his amazing voice and professional performances.
After performing a rendition of Nessun Dorma in his audition for BGT, Amanda pressed her Golden Buzzer. She remarked ‘when you were 10, Paul Potts blew us away with that song, and you did then’. Alesha added ‘I don’t know you well, but there was just something about you that made me want you to win’.
In his semi-final, he performed ‘Nelle Tue Mani’ by Andrea Bocelli, after which Simon commented ‘you just gave a really powerful strong performance with confidence – you are what this show is all about’. Alesha remarked ‘quite frankly, that was epic – you’re a new man tonight’.
In the Final, he performed the ‘Perfect Symphony’ version of Perfect by Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli. David stated that he had done ‘fantastically well’, with Simon adding ‘that was a really smart choice of song – you’ve got yourself a shot now’. He finished 4th in the public vote.
After his amazing journey on Britain’s Got Talent, Gruffydd Wyn completed a tour of Wales, with the final performance of the Tour at Pontio in Bangor, where he used to work as a theatre assistant.
In an annoucment on Facebook, Gruffydd Wyn said; “I’m delighted to be performing at Bangor Cathedral on the 18th of October to help raise awareness and funds for a charity very close to my heart.”
Anglesey choir Côr Ieuenctid Môn will also perform at the concert.
