SHAYNE WARD

Shayne Thomas Ward (born 16 October 1984 in Manchester) is a British/Irish pop singer who rose to prominence in the UK and Ireland after becoming the winner of the 2005 series of the talent show The X Factor. Although born and raised in Manchester, Ward defines himself as Irish, due to the fact that both his parents are from Ireland.

His first single, "That's My Goal", was released in the UK on Wednesday, December 21, 2005 and became the Christmas number one in 2005. It sold 313,000 copies on its first day of sales,[ though technically it was not in one day because sales of downloads for this song were around 70.000 which had been on sale for four days before the physical release] making it the fourth fastest selling single of all time (behind Elton John's "Candle in the Wind" and Will Young's "Anything Is Possible/Evergreen", which sold 685,000 and 403,000 copies in their first days of sale respectively, and 335,000 for Gareth Gates' "Unchained Melody").

His second single "No Promises" (a cover of a Bryan Rice song) was released on 10 April 2006, and it reached number two in the UK Singles Chart. His album was released on Monday April 17, and it sold over 95,000 copies on the first two days of release. By the end of the week, the album sold 201,266 copies at number 1. The album has sold 450,000 copies in total in the UK.

Sony BMG released Ward's debut album on 14 July 2006 in Taiwan and other [Asia] countries. He is currently enjoying major success there and in South Africa and he has had some success across Scandinavia.

Ward is currently working on a new album to be released on 17 April 2007. Prior to the release of the new album, Ward made a sell out tour across the UK and Ireland in early 2007, taking in eighteen concerts in twenty-eight days from late January to mid February. The tour commenced in Dublin, a personal choice of Ward's, on 21 January and ended in Birmingham on 17 February 2007.
