I started performing at the age of seven, raising money for charity by playing Mini MJ and this is the song I always danced to.

24K Magic - Bruno Mars

I like most of his songs but I love this new track! The video is so awesome, it is filmed in Las Vegas and has such a cool vibe and love the fact he also directed the video.

Cold Cold Heart - Hank Williams

My grandad used to sing this song to me when I was very young whilst playing his guitar – great memories.

When the Bassline Drops - Craig David ft Big Narstie

I have met both of these artists and I just love this tune – great collaboration!

Frankincense and Myrrh - Coops

Very talented grime artist, Coops is one to watch! I was lucky enough to be in this video and played a very dark role of a boy who collects souls.

It’s My Birthday - ft Cody Wise

Everyone has a birthday and it’s the perfect song to celebrate with.

Not Letting Go - Tinie Tempah ft Jess Glynn

The video has a great 1980s vibe and I was lucky enough to be part of the music video and got to ride a retro Chopper bike.

See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

Great tribute to actor Paul Walker (Fast and Furious) – an awesome song.

New York - Jay Z ft Alicia Keys

You can’t help but sing along and having just visited New York, I like it even more!

Secret Love Song - Little Mix ft Jason Derulo

This just works! Jason Derulo’s vocals are magic with Little Mix and video was shot with style.
