Name: Tim Prottey-Jones
Occupation: Charity worker
Tim was voted off the show on 18 July 2012.
He started piano lessons at the age of 7 and would get frustrated that he had to learn “boring classical songs” when all he wanted to do was play cool pop songs like Queen or make up his own.
Tim used to have a real phobia about singing in public, but thena friend played him Steve Balsamo’s version of Gethsemane and he realised his voice wasn’t unusual.
Tim works as a co-ordinator for a children’s music charity called ‘Sounded Out.’ where he runs projects for young people organising fundraising, working with schools, young offenders and in local communities.
Tim lives in the heart of Birmingham with his wife of two years and their cat called Sausage.
