Name: Jai McDowall
From: Ayrshire, Scotland
Background: Jai has been singing for as long as he can remember but has never had any professional training. He got into singing mainly through karaoke where his Dad and Grandfather always got him up singing and taking part in local competitions; he has since performed locally in musicals in local theatre and acting groups. People often compare him to Josh Groban and Michael Buble although he is mostly inspired by his Dad who often played in bands when Jai was little and is his role model.
Jai lives in Ayrshire and works as a support worker which he loves and finds very rewarding but his ultimate dream is to sing and he wishes he could be on stage forever.
