Enjoy another Exclusive 10th Anniversary interview with Russell and Alex Belfield:
Ruseell is an English tenor who has released singles and albums of both operatic-style and pop songs.
The self-styled “People’s Tenor” had been singing since he was a child, and became known after performing at a working men’s club.
He came to attention in 1999 when he sang “God Save the Queen” at the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, “Barcelona” at the last match of the Premiership season between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford and a full set of songs at the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final in Barcelona between Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
Here’s Alex & Russell from 2014:
Watson’s debut album titled The Voice was released in May 2001; four others followed.
However, an album planned for November 2006 was delayed due to the removal of a benign pituitary tumour.
This album, titled That’s Life, was eventually released on 5 March 2007.
Watson was one of the principal singers in the English world premiere of the Swedish musical Kristina by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus at Carnegie Hall in New York on 23 and 24 September 2009.
He and his female lead Helen Sjöholm were praised by music critic Stephen Holden as having “first-rate poperetta voices, with Mr. Watson’s Puccini-ready tenor the more operatic. Each brings down the house at least once.”
He will reprise the role in the UK premiere of the musical in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 14 April 2010.
In March/April 2014, Watson went on tour around the UK with his ‘Only One Man’ tour with the Arts Symphonic orchestra, Arts Voices and Robert D.C. Emery conducting.
