WHAT he OFFERS YOU

The story of Russell Watson is inspirational. It depicts the meteoric rise of a humble factory worker from Salford who was catapulted into international singing stardom. Russell has been no stranger to career and life threatening scenarios, having suffered two separate brain tumours. After staging a concert at Windsor Castle in the presence of Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles requested Russell's services as an ambassador for his coveted charity The Princes Trust.
