Dalton is 24 and from Kingston, Jamaica, and worked as a singer on cruise ships. He began singing at the age of five in church, and was encouraged to enter singing competitions at various schools around the island. He was able to earn some money for his family that way, and lit the fire of passion for singing he has today.
At the age of 16 he won Jamaican talent show Digicel Rising Stars, giving him a brief career in his home country and getting to number one in the Jamaican reggae charts. However the genre was not something he wanted to pursue, and he now hopes a shot at The X Factor crown will allow him to achieve his dreams on his terms.
