    McDermott, John

    He is a tenor, producer and entrepreneur born in Glasgow, Scotland, as the ninth of twelve children in an Irish family.  They emigrated to Canada in the 1960s when he began singing as a hobby.  His first album, Danny Boy, was a private recording but after finding its way to EMI Canada it received strong sales in the USA and Canada and became a No. 1 in New Zealand.  After his fan-base grew and he toured incessantly he became one of The Irish Tenors who appeared on Good Morning America and The Today Show, took 3 US tours and won a US gold record.  Since then he has produced at least one album a year, got a full international touring calendar, has been in receipt of three Canadian platinum albums, 5 Juno nominations and his first solo TV special was broadcast across North America in March 2002.  As a fundraiser for veteran's organisations he recorded the CD single "Legacy" and he has revived wartime songs for his album Remembrance.  He established McDermott House as a transitional housing co-operative for veterans in Washington DC and the Hope McDermott Day Program Center in Boston, Massachusetts.  In recognition of his work on veteran's causes he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor Society's Bob Hope Award.  A recent business venture is the Dore Achievement Centers for a drug-fee approach to learning disorders.  From 2005 to 2006 he took a respite from the last decade of touring to spend time with his family.
