Ronan Keating Biography

Ronan Patrick John Keating, 3 March 1977, Dublin, Eire. Keating's rise to fame as lead vocalist of Irish pop quintet Boyzone, gave little indication of the shrewd business brain lurking underneath his bland, choreographed exterior. Within five years of Boyzone's debut Irish hit, a cover version of the Detroit Spinners' "Working My Way Back To You", Keating had established himself as a successful television presenter, entrepreneur and solo artist. He broke into television presenting The Eurovision Song Contest and Miss World, before landing a prime-time slot in 1999 as host of the UK talent show Get Your Act Together. At the same time, Keating was preparing to establish himself as a solo artist, debuting in August with a cover version of Keith Whitley's country hit "When You Say Nothing At All". Taken from the soundtrack of the hit movie Notting Hill, the song raced to the top of the UK singles chart. Further solo success followed a year later with the chart-topping "Life Is A Rollercoaster", written by ex-New Radicals singer/producer Gregg Alexander. Both hits were included on his debut Ronan, which also featured contributions from Bryan Adams and Barry Gibb. The follow-up, Destination, included the UK chart-topper "If Tomorrow Never Comes".
