James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go
28 year-old James is from Saltburn near Middlesbrough and when he entered the X Factor he was living in a tiny bed sit. Having been suspended from school he later slept rough before volunteering to go into foster care. James went through bootcamp before being accepted as one of Nicole Scherzinger’s final 3. After landing in the bottom two with Ella Henderson he survived the judges vote and became the 1st ever winner of the X Factor to face elimination. Beating Jahmene Douglas in the final James scored a Number 1 with his debut single ‘Impossible’, selling over 1 million copies in the UK. Despite 3 Top 20 singles and an album that peaked at No2 he was dropped from Simon Cowell’s record label in 2014. ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ is the debut single from his upcoming 3rd album ‘Back From The Edge’ and he’s been re-signed by Simon Cowell.
