ABOUT DAMIAN

Damian McGinty was born in Derry, Northern Ireland in 1992 (September 9)
He has one brother, Emmett, and one sister, Gemma. His mother’s name is  Joanne and his father´s name is Damian Joseph McGinty Sr.

He has been performing for about a decade! He won his first singing contest by the age of 6, then he was invited to several concerts in Ireland . Finally he recorded a CD .

This CD was passed along to “Celtic Thunder”  Music Director Phil Coulter and he invited Damian to participate in a new group that he was forming : “Celtic Thunder“.

He was only 14 years old when he started in the group and the amazing thing is that all the other members were grown-ups…He was the only one teenager…the baby 😉

He has completed 4 coast-to-coast tours in the US and Canada and developed from the soprano boy to the deepper baritone that he is today.

The last tour and CD of CT in which Damian participated was  “Heritage“.

In 2010, a worldwide competition called “The Glee Project” was announced and Damian was selected as one of the final 12 contenders…!

Showing week by week his incredible talent, his encourage and cautivating more and more not only the TV wiewers but the “Glee” cast and producers.

Finally, he was one of the two winners! And got a seven arc episode but because of his awesomeness his contract was extended and was in almost every episode of “Glee” season 3.

On June,  he started a new bussiness in his homeland, Derry. With his partner, Oran O’Carrol launched AudioBooth a record studio and in August has started their own record label “Walled City Records“.

Damian is now in Los Angeles.

What do you think? Isn’t his life like a novel? Would you imagine that a 19 years-old could be so hard-working? Express yourself!

Here, some videos, just to take a look to the development of this great artist!
