Jamaican-born Dalton Harris rose to fame in the UK in 2018 as the winner of the fifteenth season of The X Factor. Throughout the series he stood head and shoulders above the other contestants and was consistently favourite to win the show.
He auditioned for the series with Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word by Elton John. He received four “yeses” from the judges Robbie Williams, Ayda Field, Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell.
In the final, he dueted Beneath Your Beautiful with Emeli Sande. His winner's single was The Power of Love, performed as a duet with James Arthur (winner of The X Factor in 2012).
After his win, Harris began releasing music in Jamaica. He then travelled across the United States for five years to widen his scope. He released many tracks including I'm Numb, Watch Over Me and That Wonderful Sound in 2015, Plus All I Need, Whisper in the Wind, Unfaithful Chronicles and Dem Kinda Woman in 2016 and Perilous Time in 2017. In 2018, he released the joint album Unintentional Astronaut with Mike Needler.
Prior to the X Factor, in 2010 Dalton Harris became the youngest winner of the Jamaican singing competition Digicel Rising Stars.
