Who is Sheldon Riley

The son of an Aussie mother and a Filipino father, Riley amassed a following during his run on The Voice Australia in 2018, earning a spot in the final four. His distinct voice and style have even birthed a potentially new genre in music. And to think this well-defined character comes from someone who once came from a place of struggle, it will make you respect him more.

  • The X Factor Australia

He started his career as a contestant of ‘The X Factor Australia in 2016. Sadly, as his skills were not that refined, he failed to go far in the competition well, it didn’t break his will and aim to become a successful artist one day.

  • The Voice Australia

Sheldon Riley worked hard on his vocals and refined his singing. Finally, he made a banging comeback in “The Voice – Australia” in 2018 and was coached by Boy George. When he set free his true personality, people were either shocked or impressed. Unfortunately, he didn’t win the competition but he came in third place. He definitely left his mark though, making listeners his fans.

With his previous experiences, he worked on himself and competed again on “The Voice All Stars” 2019 season. Sadly, he got eliminated in the semifinals.

  • America’s Got Talent

In Episode 1507 of America’s Got Talent, Sheldon Riley’s sung Billie Eilish’s “idontwannabeyouanymore” which allowed him to be rewarded with the Judge Cuts. Truly speaking, his outfit seemed more intriguing than his performance. If you don’t know, he had draping black feathers and a beaded mask on. In the quarterfinals, he chose Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” when he failed to get enough votes required to advance to the Semifinals.
