Cormac Thompson Young Chorister Sings “Empty Chairs At Empty Tables”

Cormac Thompson, a talented choir singer from Lancashire, UK, began his musical journey at just 8 years old. In 2020, he started sharing his beautiful voice on YouTube, catching the attention of Decca Records, who collaborated with him to produce an album.

One of Cormac’s standout performances was his rendition of “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables” from “Les Misérables,” recorded at London’s Masterchord Studio. This touching track was released as a charity single to support “Acting For Others,” an organization helping theater workers facing hardships, especially during the challenges of 2020.

In the accompanying video, 13-year-old Cormac showcases his musical maturity with emotive vocals. Music became Cormac’s solace during lockdown, initially shared with his nannie in Northern Ireland, but it sparked his passion for music.

Fueled by this passion, Cormac’s musical journey blossomed. In 2021, he caught the attention of professional pianist Dominic Ferris, known for collaborations with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and artists like Michael Ball. Recognizing Cormac’s talent, they recorded eight tracks together.

Cormac’s angelic vocals have also graced the UK airwaves, notably in the “BBC Young Chorister of the Year” competition, where he reached the final in 2021.

Drawing inspiration from artists like Ed Sheeran, Cormac is focused on preserving his treble voice before transitioning to adulthood.
