Martin Hurkens is a brilliant singer from Holland. Back in 2010, Martin entered the Dutch TV program, “Holland’s Got Talent”. His daughter thought he had a good chance, she believed in him and signed him up, despite his hesitations. After deliberation he decided to participate in what he describes now as a “great programme”. The, at that time, unemployed baker had just embarked on a life-changing journey.
His journey was set to be quite impressive and see him make it all the way to the final. The final was between Martin and Elastic Double, an incredible dance duo. Martin, only having low expectations for himself at the start of the show, was perplexed when his name came out as the winner! Below is Martin singing ‘You Raise Me Up’! Watch the whole video- he has such a powerful voice!
Watching his videos you can see why he made it all the way. His vocal quality and delivery is exceptional. After the show he has been inundated with requests to perform at a variety of venues and events. Below, we have a video of Martin performing in the center of Maastricht, a city in The Netherlands.
In the video he performs “You Raise Me Up” which became a massive hit throughout social media. The viral video opened more doors for Martin as he travelled to China, Taiwan and Japan to showcase his wonderful talents. Below is Martin Hurkens singing “Ave Maria”, another video which has had massive success on social media and YouTube.
The wonderful singer has taken his talent across the globe and continues to record successful videos which are watched around the world. A brilliant talent which The Music Man would love to see more from. Check Him out on Facebook: Martin Hurkens
