Today we look at a musician that narrowly missed the top spot on the 2005 X Factor and lost out to Shayne Ward by 1.2% of the national public vote. Today we look at the music career of Andy Abraham after the reality television show.

In the year of 2006, Andy released his debut album which was called The Impossible Dream and went straight in at number 2 and sold 176,000 in it’s first week of release. It also ended up being the twelfth highest selling album of that year as well. There was only one single that was released from this and it was called Hang Up and it went into the UK chart at number 63.

Andy didn’t release just one album in 2006, he actually released two albums with the second one coming out the end of the year and was called Soul Man. This one did not do as well as the debut and entered the UK chart at number 19. Again, this record only had one single and it was called December Brings Me Back To You and it reached number 18 in the singles chart.

That was not the end of the albums released by Andy, oh no, in 2008 he released a greatest hits album. A month after this was released his third official album which was called Even If with a single being released with the same name.

In 2008 Andy also won the chance to go to the Eurovision as the UK singer and was selected through the wild card choice on the show  Eurovision – Your Decision. He only received 14 points and became only the second ever UK act to come last in the competition. Whilst Andy hasn’t released any official singles since, he did release an album in 2012 called Remember When which was a collection of songs that have influenced him over the years.

So lets have a look at the singles that he did release today.
