Patrick James is an Irish musician and recording artist with the music label Universal Music.
From working in Dunne's Stores to being coached by Una Foden (The Saturday's) on The Voice of Ireland, Patrick rose to fame and not only won the competition but he won the hearts of the nation too.
This proves that any dream can come true if only you believe!
It was in fact Patrick's cover of Daniel Merriweather's song "Red" that vowed all four judges and while I watched on at home in amazement I simply said WOW!!
The Voice of Ireland is a musical talent show created by John de Mol.
It was first aired on Irish television on January 8th 2012 via RTE One.
