Gareth Malone

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - NEW SERIES REVEALED -

Choir­mas­ter and TV pre­sen­ter Gareth Malone was born in Lon­don in 1975. His pas­sion for mu­sic is the start­ing point for his quest. “There’s a fire in my belly about mu­sic that has just al­ways been there – I want to find out where my per­for­mance gene comes from.” His jour­ney be­gins with his great great grand­fa­ther Ed­ward Payne, a per­former, but there are other sur­prises in store for Gareth in the form of one in­di­vid­ual fur­ther back on his tree who clearly had the drive to suc­ceed and made the most of all the op­por­tu­ni­ties that came his way. “He had the de­ter­mi­na­tion to rein­vent him­self. What am­bi­tion – he must have been a smart guy. How won­der­ful to be re­lated to some­body like that.”
