International singer features at Thames concert
Thames Music Group presents international singer Will Martin on Sunday, June 11.
His debut album — A New World — went double platinum here in New Zealand. When it was released in the United Kingdom it launched at number 1, making him the youngest man in musical history to top the classical charts.
By no means a strictly classical singer, Will is renowned for his engaging performance style, alluring personality, and expressive voice across multiple musical genres.
Live performances have included world-renowned stages and festivals from London’s Royal Albert Hall, Henley, and Hampton Court Palace to the Basel Military Tattoo in Switzerland.
Will’s inimitable voice has been heard on all seven continents. He is a regular performer at the world’s most prestigious governmental ceremonies and international sporting events, at illustrious venues including Westminster Abbey, Wembley Stadium, and Chicago’s Soldier Field.
Will has led the New Zealand national anthem for the All Blacks 10 times, and more recently, was honoured to present his arrangement of Requiem For A Soldier (the theme from Steven Spielberg’s Band Of Brothers) at the Auckland Museum’s Anzac Day service, for His Royal Highness Prince William.
“I can’t wait to return to Thames to perform next month, having been working overseas for the bulk of the Kiwi summer,” said Martin. “Returning home to entertain New Zealanders is always the greatest reward for my international touring-see you soon!”
