Today, I am overjoyed to bring you one of England’s most talented young stage performers and future singing sensation Rhys Yeomans!
Thirteen year old Rhys Yeomans started with Stage Coach at the age of 9 and then went on to train at Center Pointe, (both in England). There he learned all aspects of jazz, tap, modern and contemporary dance, but, in particular, focused on ballet and he soon started to win many local dance competitions.
In September 2009, after two years of training, Rhys was offered the part of “Billy” in Billy Elliot the Musical in September 2009 and then moved to London from Manchester to rehearse for the show. Rhys played the part of “Billy” at the Victoria Palace in London’s West End until April 2011 and loved every minute of it. He logged in over 100 performances.
Immediately following his run with Billy Elliot, Rhys began recording tracks with multi-Grammy award winning British record producer Kipper. Kipper is best known for producing iconic recording artist Sting.
Rhys now has theatrical representation in both the UK and the United States. He plans to continue with his acting, hoping to start working in film and television.
Not only is Rhys an outstanding stage performer, but also a delightful young man with personality personified! I asked Rhys to introduce himself to all of you through this video and the written interview that follows. I know that you will be charmed by this special exclusive introduction, and encourage you to find out more about him by visiting his YouTube Site.

With all the calamities that have been happening back to back in the world, the true nature of the human heart reveals again how we share each other’s pain and hurts and truly desire to extend a helping hand.
This week’s tribute article features four of our regularly featured artists. Marcus and Sondre, better known as 2Boys, Sam Verlinden, and Joshua Flores, who were so moved by the devastation around them, that they have produced and recorded songs to bring messages of hope and encouragement!
I asked 2Boys a little about their new song entitled “Help Them” and they gave me the background of what inspired this particular production.
Marcus explained, “Some of our fans on Facebook requested that we create a song about the tsunami and the devastation in Japan. We were in the middle of working on a new single but really wanted to do this. So putting the current work aside we asked if someone wanted to try sending some lyrics or just a few thoughts about the event. A girl in our hometown Nina Vabog actually sent us a text that sparked the inspiration needed to write the lyrics for the song.”
Once the lyrics were on paper Marcus fired up their home studio equipment and made a beat in just one evening of work. Three days later the entire project from conception to the final note was completed just in time to perform live at a special concert appearance. Their dad told me;
“They perhaps would have been safer to perform one of their other songs but this song had become so meaningful to them that they just could not put it aside and desired to sing it to their fans and to the world!”
