Michael Ball is Britain’s leading musical theatre star, a double Olivier Award-winning, Grammy nominated, multi-platinum recording artist and a hugely popular radio and TV presenter.
For over 30 years Michael has been at the top of his game, starring in musical theatre productions including Les Miserablés, Hairspray and Sweeney Todd in the West End and on Broadway, winning critical acclaim, a devoted following and awards for his stage work and recording career.
He regularly tours the UK as a concert artist and has sold millions of albums. In 2007, he made his BBC Proms debut at the Royal Albert Hall, becoming the first musical theatre star to give a solo concert at the Proms. His album Together, released with close friend and singer Alfie Boe, became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot. Three albums later, the pair have sold over 1.5 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out two headline arena tours and presented three ITV Specials!
During the U.K. lockdowns, Michael started to pen new material, inspired by his work for charity and community. The result was We Are More Than One, his most personal album with an inspiring story to every track. His debut novel, The Empire, was published in Autumn 2022 and became a Sunday Times Bestseller
