Since winning his heat of the Stars in Their Eyes in 1994, Rob has become one of the hottest acts around!
Rob lives in the Lincolnshire area and within months of his amazing rendition of Faith on Stars in Their Eyes, the endless phone calls for bookings persuaded him to turn professional.
Rob has now performed all over the world as a solo artist and his performance includes favourite such as Faith, Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up, and I'm Your Man - right up to his performance of Outside in his Authentic L.A Police uniform!
Spotted By Chris Evans where he performed at the 1999 Virgin Christmas Party alongside Atomic Kitten Raisa and the Clint Boone Experience, he subsequently went on to perform on the Christmas Eve TFI Friday TV show, alongside the Pet Shop Boys and the Lightening Seeds.
No Stranger to TV, - Rob has also appeared on the Girlie Show and the Late late Show with the fabulous Corrs.
He was also invited to appear as a guest with Shirley Bassey on the Spanish version of Stars in Their Eyes during 1996. His accurate images and unbelievable performance of the George Michael and Wham songs make this the number one live tribute show.
Rob is a familiar face, so to speak, having forged a very successful singing career impersonating the pop star George Michael and in the process becoming something of a star himself.
Not only does Rob sound like the real McCoy, the resemblance is so great that when Rob appeared as George on Granada TVs Stars in Their Eyes in 1994, the programme's make-up department had to 'tone down' his natural appearance, before the 'transformation' took place, so as not to give the game away to the audience.
STAR IN HIS EYES
The tape was sent to Granada Television and a few weeks later Robert received a surprise telephone call inviting him for audition for Stars In Their Eyes.
Rob's singing career really took off, and he has never looked back. He has now performed all over the world in places like Dubai and the south of France as a solo artist. Spotted by TV and radio host Chris Evans whilst entertaining at a private party, he went on to appear on Channel 4's TFI Friday, singing 'Last Christmas' and also performed at the 1999 Virgin Christmas party alongside top pop acts such as Atomic Kitten. Other TV appearances have included the Girlie Show and the Late Late Show.
Indeed Rob's own musical preferences do differ slightly from that which he is used to singing he loves 70's music, as well as contemporary bands such as Coldplay, The Stereophonics and The Corrs and confesses to being an Elvis fan!
A GOOD PERFORMANCE
But even though the main reason Rob would rush out to buy George Michael's latest release would be to memorize his new songs to perfection, major effort has been put into making his act believable.
"You've got to give a good performance," he says. "I've worked hard to ensure that the audience get what they've come to see a convincing act."
And they do indeed get that from the sound of his voice to his hip movements, and beard, Rob's repertoire is unbelievably comparable to the real thing and hugely popular if you go by the number of emails received via this website.
"I always ensure my audiences have fun," says Rob" When it comes to having a good time, 'I'm your man!?
