After hearing the Welsh schoolboy audition to the Jackson 5 version of Who's Lovin' You in 2009, Simon Cowell said: "This is how one song can change your life". As it turns out, very prophetic words.

Shaheen Jafargholi reached the final of Britain's Got Talent and was invited to perform at Michael Jackson's planned series of London concerts. When the King of Pop died, incredibly, Shaheeen sang at the televised memorial service (pictured with Lionel Richie) in front of an estimated global audience of 2.5 billion.

He followed this with appearances on Oprah, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Larry King. Among other gigs, he sang at the MOBOs, supported Leona Lewis and appeared on UK tours of shows such as The King & I and Thriller Live (as the young Michael Jackson).

Currently attending the Mark Jermin Stage School, Shaheen's focus is firmly on a career in music.
