About Cormac

Hi. I'm Cormac, I am 12 and I love singing. In 2020, when we stayed at home a lot I couldn't visit my Northern Irish Nannie! My Mum posted videos of me singing for her on YouTube. One day, I had a very nice surprise when a record label got in touch. We had a chat and I spent the summer learning songs and recording my debut album 'Hear My Voice'. It was released on Decca Records for Christmas.

I sing at home, I sing at school, I sing in choirs and I sing solos. It lifts my spirits and makes me smile. I started singing when I was 7 and when I was 9, I successfully auditioned for 'The Halle Children's Choir and NYCGB. That's really where it all began. I have been very lucky to perfom solos at The Bridgewater Hall (Manchester), The Waterfront Hall (Belfast) and Ripon Cathedral and I am looking forward to when we can all sing together again.

Recording the album was lots of fun and filming my music videos was a brand new experience. I learnt a lot and I absolutely love singing these songs, especially the high notes. I won't be able to reach these forever! I hope you enjoy listening and maybe even have a little sing along too. Please visit my YouTube channel to see more videos. I love to welcome new subscribers and it will help keep you up to date with all my new songs.

Debut Album - 'Hear My Voice'

Recorded in August 2020 when social distancing was the norm. Luckily I could take my mask off to sing! All the learning was done on-line and my dogs liked to join in. It wasn't ideal but we managed and we all had fun too. I really hope you like my songs. Singing has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember but I never dreamt I would get to do what I have just done. "Hear my Voice", Classic FM's Album of the Week (7.12.20) is available to buy now. I am the youngest person to be awarded this accolade. Thank you for supporting me.

It's thirsty work, all this singing.


How many microphones does a boy need?

And I didn't even have to learn all the words!


And that's a wrap! For now ...

For Our Sleeping Buildings

When filming recently in Blackburn Cathedral, I was struck by the impact the pandemic is having on magnificent buildings like this. I would like to dedicate this world famous Brahms lullaby, 'Wiegenlied' to all of our sleeping buildings, not just in the United Kingdom but across the world, in the hope that soon they will waken for us to sing in them again.

Blackburn Cathedral

This is a beautiful cathedral, very close to my home town of Darwen in Lancashire. I have recently had the pleasure of singing here and it was the perfect place for me to record this Brahms Lullaby.


A day of hope and inspiration

Being in this magnificent cathedral, to shoot the video, was very special indeed. There is only so much I can put into a song, standing in my living room! I can't wait for the day when congregations and audiences can return to special venues like this and we can sing for them again.

Until they waken again

Reflecting the global nature of the pandemic I ventured away from my native English for this really beautiful song. Despite the difficulties of the last year, our global communities have largely come together and we have learned so much about the determination of our human spirit.
