The Malachi Story...
Malachi Cush is like a fine wine that only improves with age. Having begun his singing career at the age of sixteen while competing for all-Ireland Scόr glory, it is fair to say that as Malachi enters his tenth year in the music business he has never sounded better. Malachi now takes the stage as an accomplished performer with much success under his belt. His voice, carefully nurtured by experience, can easily melt even the coldest hearts.
Malachi Cush makes music effortless..
Malachi has come a long way since his departure from BBC's Fame Academy in 2002. Having surpassed thousands of applicants to be accepted and then reaching the final five, the programme afforded Malachi an opportunity to show the world what he could do. His debut album, 'Malachi' entered the UK top-twenty album chart along with the Irish album chart, earning a silver disc. One self-penned single 'Just Say you Love Me' achieved much success in the Far East holding the number one spot in Thailand for five weeks.
Malachi´s achievements continued, both musically and otherwise. He began working with BBC and then UTV fulfilling presenting roles both on radio and television. Malachi's soothing voice and soft tones soon led him to be a hit on the airwaves. His popular Sunday morning show for the Northern Media Group led to his own daily radio show and being voted 'Most popular Irish radio Personality' in 2005 and again in 2008' .
Music remained at the heart of Malachi's success. He recorded another three albums, 'Celtic Heartbeat', 'New Day' and 'Timeless Traditions'. Malachi's appeal continued to expand and reach new audiences as his vocal talent became more evident with each release. His song writing skills also continued to bring Malachi respect in the music industry. 'Until We Meet Again', a co-written song with Don Mescall, was selected as one of four potential Ireland Eurovision songs in 2007 and was performed on RTE's 'The Late Late show'. The public vote placed it in the runner up position. 'Blessed be the One', a duet performed and released with Joanne Cash, composed by Malachi, went straight to number one in the American New Christian Music chart.
Malachi continues to perform and record music. His latest album 'Songs for the Soul' takes a slightly different direction than previous albums to mark a milestone in his career. This collection of sacred songs has served to inspire Malachi on his journey over the past ten years. With his beautiful voice and heartfelt singing there is no doubt that 'Songs for the Soul' and Malachi, will continue to inspire others.
