Who is Tom Ball?
24 year old Tom Ball from West Sussex shot to critical acclaim and popularity after blowing away the Nation on Britain’s Got Talent in 2022.
Teacher Tom, who has a degree in Musical Theatre finished third and was described as ”Exceptional & Remarkable” by judges, with Amanda Holden claiming him to be “One of the best singers the show had seen in 16 years”.
Tom’s unassuming nature, quiet confidence and bubbly personality won him an Army of new fans and Global supporters after his very first, show stopping performance of Oscar-winning ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ (Sam Smith). The song ended with all four judges and a London Apollo audience all on their feet in amazement with rapturous applause for over a minute. It was clear, a special talent had been found with Music Mogul, Simon Cowell’s excitement clear for all to see, not to mention his first audition racking up a massive 4 million views online in a matter of days.
The semi final showed the opening montage of secondary school teacher Tom, who had taught throughout the last 2 years of the pandemic, inspiring the children of his school to follow in his footsteps and pursue their dreams, and much to their excitement he then revealed his involvement in BGT, scene’s that left all feeling a sense of Tom's genuinely authentic desires to not only sing for a living but make a difference in his pupil's lives.
Following another “sensational” performance, the Burgess Hill School teacher belted out his rendition of 'Rise Like a Phoenix' (Conchita Wurst) going on to storm and win semi final three and cement his place in the Britain’s Got Talent Final 2022.
Tom grew up singing and performing from aged 7 in local theatre groups, developing his voice at any given opportunity. Tom had pursued his involvement in music to University where he studied Musical Theatre and then onward inspiring and teaching young children Music and drama.
Tom spent years encouraging and teaching others into the spotlight, although he had never actually put himself there, so unsurprisingly given the opportunity in the grand final of the most watched TV show in the UK, Tom pulled out another performance of his life, finishing with yet another thunderous applause and standing ovation by all with his performance of 'I (Who Have Nothing)' (Tom Jones).
“Remarkable, unbelievable and unforgettable” were words used by Amanda Holden, whilst Simon Cowell claimed, “You're interesting, you're talented, you're a nice person - I mean you are amazing." The music executive going on to admit to being clear on seeing Tom's potential as “a leading name in the West End”.
With his high tenor voice, Tom's repertoire covers a huge catalogue of songs from musical theatre to mainstream, covering artists from Sam Smith to Tom Jones as demonstrated in this year's BGT Final which led to an incredible third place in the UK's biggest talent competition.
Tom is now committed to developing himself as a professional recording & touring artist and has already supported Multi-Platinum Selling legend, Michael Ball at a sold out London Palladium.
Fresh from performing across Europe and America, the BGT powerhouse remains his unassuming and endearing self, recently pledging to continue to help guide and inspire the next generation by launching his own online music school - 'Tom Ball’s Rising Stars'.
Diabetes UK Ambassador:
Having been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at aged 8, Tom recently has become an official ambassador of diabetes UK, hoping to raise awareness and support for over 300,000 people in the UK suffering with type 1.
