Jahmene Douglas announces debut album release date

SING YOUR HEART OUT: Jahmene Douglas in action (PA)

X FACTOR runner-up Jahmene Douglas has announced the launch date of his debut album, Love Never Fails.

The 23-year-old singer said his first complete album will be available from July 22.

The reality TV star has also revealed he does a cover version of Beyonce’s Halo, which will feature on the upcoming work.

Having formerly worked at Asda stacking shelves before finding fame, Douglas is beginning to find his feet in the limelight.

“I know I seem shy, but singing was my therapy, my outlet, my release,” he said.

“It was how I could be just me. First of all it would be singing to Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley. Just singing at the top of my voice.

“It’s a way of zoning out and making you strong. The singing became my sanctuary when I was growing up,” Douglas added.

The singer also revealed other creative pursuits he spent his time doing when younger.

“For a lot of the time I was home schooled. I would draw, and write poetry. I like whatever I could do to be creative but singing was my thing, it kept me calm,” he explained.

On the topic of which singer has been his biggest influence, Douglas had no doubt.

“It would have to be Whitney Houston. Her interpretation was always incredible. She knew when to make it big.”

On his debut album, Douglas also duets with X Factor mentor Nicole Scherzinger, who, according to him, is “so incredibly talented. This song and Nicole ooze class.”
