Owen Mac has become something of a phenomena on YouTube. The 16-year-old singer from near Coleraine in Co Derry has already garnered a few million hits on the channel and his appeal is not just confined to the island of Ireland.

A sell-out debut show in Newfoundland, Canada, last year appears to be just the tip of the iceberg in relation to his outreach to audiences. In the week gone by, he performed two shows to rave reviews in Utah, on his very first visit to the USA. The young man is certainly going places.
