TWELVE months ago Mo Adeniran was working at the Village Hotel and spending any waking minute he had performing at gigs.
Now the 21-year-old singer has signed a lucrative record deal with Polydor Records, counts global superstar Jennifer Hudson as one of his friends and is the winner of the The Voice UK.
But in spite of a whirlwind few months Mo, who dreams of performing at Madison Square Garden, has always kept his feet on the ground.
“I was actually surprised,” said the former hotel worker.
“The other acts had a very good online presence.
“I had just been focusing on making sure the songs were prepared.
“I’m still processing everything – I’ve not had time to stop since but the support has been amazing.”
After moving to Warrington from London at the age of seven, Mo spent his formative years in foster care.
He was also forced to come to terms with the sudden death of his close friend Jack Dakin who died alongside fellow Viola Beach band members and manager Craig Tarry following a crash in Sweden.
The talented singer will be returning to Warrington tomorrow, Friday, to perform at The Halliwell Jones Stadium during half time as Warrington Wolves take on Leeds Rhinos.
