After leaving college in 1999, he won a place on the ITV prime time show ‘Michael Barrymore’s ‘My Kind of Music’. He performed ‘Vesti La Giubba’ (On With the Motley), from Pagliacci. This was the big break he was looking for. He was spotted by the producer of the international dance show ‘Spirit of the Dance’ and was immediately whisked off to Reno, Nevada to open a new show – ‘One World’. There he became a featured solo artist. During a 3 year engagement with ‘Spirit and One World’, Benjamin opened huge events in American and European arenas and stadiums.
