Twenty million Facebook fans. Over a hundred million views on YouTube. And all of this was achieved in a less than a year.
Australian singer, producer, and songwriter William Singe owns these honors. Despite these remarkable successes, many still don't know William Singe is or what he does. In fact, whenever I ask my friends about him, I either get a "Who's that?", or "I've never even heard of him."
Well, I'm tired of being the only one who knows about Singe. That is why I've compiled a list of reasons for why you should stan him just like me.
1. His vocals. Enough said.
In this dreaded age of technology, music lovers always question the authenticity of our most beloved artists. Auto-tune, computer-created instrumentation, and other popular technological components of this generation have decimated music's quality. Singe, however, isn't included in this category. Every note that Singe belts is his and his naturally. His ad libs, his high notes, his rapping: all of these have been untouched by modern technology. If you're a music lover looking for uninhibited vocal skills, Singe is one of your best bets.
2. His dedication is unmatched.
Singe's beginnings are more humble than you may think. Before going onto the X-Factor, Singe worked as a bank teller in Dee Why of Sydney, Australia. Though many of his fans know that his origin is from the X-Factor-produced boy band The Collective, it took Singe two auditions before the judges decided to place him in the music industry. After three years, Singe finally decided to pursue his solo career. Of course, his hard work has paid off with him touring in cities across the globe. And better yet: this is only the beginning of his career.
3. He makes your favorite hits even better.
Though Singe has written many original songs, most people know him for his passionate covers of popular American hits. From his very own bedroom, Singe has recorded many song covers for his fans' pleasure. In the blink of an eye, William Singe can turn a club banger like hip hop artist Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen" into a sultry, melodic R&B hit. As of this year, Singe uploaded over 75 covers onto his YouTube account. Many artists struggle with this transition, and I give the Australian artist kudos for that. It takes great skill to make someone else's song into your very own.
3. He's a great guy.
Thankfully, Singe's successes haven't all gone to his head. As a growing artist, Singe has collaborated with many popular artists. Anyone can tell that the interactions he has with other artists and his own fans are genuine and not superficial. Singe is a person that will always be thankful for those who support him, no matter how small or big he becomes in the music world.
In my opinion, William Singe stands on the same level with many popular artists. Eventually, his talent, dedication, and great personality will bring him to the top of the ladder. It's all just a matter of time.
So, be sure to support him by legally purchasing his songs online or attending his upcoming concert with other ascending artist Alex Aiono. I assure that Singe's voice will have the same effect as it did on me. Have fun!
