X Fac­tor star Nicky’s back in the Lime­Light

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Leona Greenan

For­mer X Fac­tor star Nicky Mc­Don­ald is mak­ing his mu­si­cal re­turn with the re­lease of a new sin­gle.

The Mother­well singer, who was run­ner-up in the tenth series of the ITV tal­ent show, re­leased Lime­Light on Fri­day, Novem­ber 23, after tak­ing some time out to work on his new al­bum. The sin­gle re­lease will then be fol­lowed by a new al­bum in early 2019. The 21-year-old has had a busy few months per­form­ing at huge venues, such as the SSE Hy­dro, and head­lin­ing a tour across the coun­try as well as re­cently ap­pear­ing on tele­vi­sion’s Loose Women to talk about his come­back.

He also spent time trav­el­ling the world per­form­ing to crowds on board a cruise ship, where he honed his mu­si­cal skill and abil­ity, and spent time writ­ing his new ma­te­rial.

Nicky told The Ticket: “Fol­low­ing on from my first al­bum, In the Arms of an An­gel, in 2014, after com­ing run­ner-up on the X Fac­tor, I will be re­leas­ing my brand new sin­gle Lime­Light.

“Be­hind the scenes for the past few years I have self-funded and worked tire­lessly to make sure I am fully happy with the new sound in a bid to en­sure noth­ing but qual­ity mu­sic for my fans and con­tin­ued sup­port­ers.

“It has been a long hard slog, but it’s been worth every minute and I can­not wait for ev­ery­one to lis­ten to Lime­Light, which is re­leased and avail­able to down­load.”

Nicky gave his fans a sneak pre­view of his sin­gle re­cently on his Twit­ter ac­count, which went down a storm with them.

He added: “I’ve def­i­nitely ma­tured and found my own di­rec­tion mu­si­cally.

“It’s ex­cit­ing and I’m look­ing for­ward to hear­ing what peo­ple think about the new al­bum.”

Lime­Light is avail­able to down­load on all mu­sic plat­forms in­clud­ing iTunes and Spo­tify.

Nicky is renowned for his char­ity work and just last week helped to raise cash for the Beat­son Cancer Char­ity by per­form­ing a small Christ­mas lights switch-on at a house in Hamil­ton (see pic­ture).

Good sport Nicky sang two songs out of the bed­room win­dow of Iain Flem­ing’s home in Forth Ter­race for the char­ity.

Iain spent four weeks dec­o­rat­ing his house in thou­sands of fes­tive lights to raise money for cancer care char­ity the Beat­son.

And the dad-of-three in­vited the pub­lic to his home to watch the lights daz­zle for the first time.
