Only Men Aloud have been delighting audiences around the world for over eighteen years. They were formed in the year 2000, with the hope they could inject some new life and blood into the Welsh Male Choir tradition.
The men have become well known for their strong vocals and their varied and eclectic repertoire. A typical OMA concert will feature many different styles of music. Welsh hymns and folksongs, Opera and Music Theatre all the way to Swing and Pop music.
Eleven years ago, they were named BBC One’s Last Choir Standing and this led to an album deal with Universal Records. In 2010, they won a Classical Brit Award for Best Album of the Year. They have toured every year since winning the show, all around the world and have worldwide record sales of over 300,000.
Over the years, the hugely popular group has built up a strong fan base across the country and were honoured to be asked to sing at the London 2012 Opening Ceremony at the very moment the Olympic Flame was lit. This performance was broadcast to an estimated global TV audience of 900 million people.
OMA have now recorded six studio albums and are making plans for a seventh. They continue their busy touring and concert schedule, right across the UK, Europe and beyond. Recent notable engagements have included performing at The UEFA Champions League Final Celebrations in Cardiff. The end of 2018 saw them heading out on the road once again for their Decade Tour, culminating in an amazing Gala Concert in Cardiff to celebrate the ten years since winning Last Choir Standing.
