James Arthur’s soulful performance in Nova’s Red Room


Watch the former X Factor U.K. artist's acoustic performance in Nova's Red Room

X Factor U.K. judge Louise Walsh once told him after a performance on the show, "James, you’re a real original and I think from today on, your life is going to change". Four years on, her statement couldn’t have been more true.

James Arthur’s debut single 'Impossible' became the biggest X Factor winner’s song of all time in the UK with over three million downloads worldwide and a #2 spot on the The ARIA chart.


With his latest comeback single 'Say You Won’t Let Go' a favourite on NOVA’s airwaves, an impressive #12 on the Australian iTunes charts, and #1 on the ARIAs top 50 singles,  we invited James to perform it an acoustic version of it in Nova's Red Room. The 28-year-old blew us away with his impressive vocal range as he sang and strummed his way through the track. 


We recommend you listen through headphones for the full soothing effect.
