The unstoppable Marc Roberts has released his fourth album, ‘The Promise’, this week. A collection of 13 songs, it includes some self-penned numbers, while others are co-written with Ben Mills (X Factor finalist), Darren Holden (The High Kings) and Charlie McGettigan.
Ever since the day he mesmerised the audience at his local school concert singing Don McLean’s ‘American Pie’, Marc Roberts was destined for stardom. On hearing the spontaneous burst of wild applause from parents and friends in his hometown of Crossmolina as a schoolboy, Marc’s love of performing was born. He was bitten by the show-biz bug that night, but never imagined that by 1997 he would be representing Ireland on the international stage, singing in the Eurovision Song Contest before 300 million TV viewers.
He came second with ‘Mysterious Woman’, but more importantly, the contest served as a launching platform for his career, with performances on top TV shows to follow, including the Late Late Show, Richard & Judy, Open House and the Kelly Show. Since the glory days of Eurovision, Marc has been carving out a lifestyle as a live performer, singer/songwriter and even finds time to host a popular Saturday afternoon radio show on Galway Bay FM.
