Danyl Johnson is an ex-drama and stage school teacher who rose to fame after appearing in the 2009 series of X Factor; now an established solo artist Johnson continues to perform, particularly at charitable events, and has made a number of guest appearances on popular television series such as Benidorm.
Johnson, who was praised by the notoriously tough X Factor judge Simon Cowell for giving “the best first audition” he had ever seen, gave solo artist performances of “Feelin’ Good” and “Purple Rain” during his time on the X Factor and received mass praise from both judges and viewers for his renditions.
Danyl Johnson is openly bisexual and has caused some controversy around the gender of some of the lyrics in his music acts, however he still remains popular, with an ever loyal fan base and online following that reaches above 100,000.
For those who haven’t heard Johnson sing many have said that he has a beautiful, soulful voice that has melted hearts; his performances of both traditional and contemporary songs make him one of the most sought after solo artists working on the event and after dinner circuit.
Alongside his work as a solo performer Johnson is part of two boy bands, but has achieved most of his success as a solo music act.
Outside of his work in the entertainment and music business Johnson has done a great deal of charity work and in 2012 was nominated for a Pride of Reading Award for Cultural Contribution. Johnson has also been open about his own battle against testicular cancer and encourages men everywhere to be aware of the dangers of the disease.
In more recent years Johnson has made appearances on his local television network, BBC Berkshire and continues to tour and perform as a successful solo artist.
