Langley Fine Arts student, Cole Armour, was recently asked to sing on the Ellen Degeneres Show!

Thirteen year old Cole Armour had the honor of being invited to sing on the Ellen Degeneres show. Arden Holmes, co-editor at Bluedog Press, interviewed Armour to hear about his time on Ellen.

After Armour’s dad created a CD of him singing, Ellen saw it and phoned him to ask if he could come to California for the show. Armour sang Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.” She is his favorite singer and is his role model for what Armour would like to achieve in the future.

“I would like to be as big as Celine Dion, but not just like her; I want to be Cole Armour.”

Ellen then went on to tweet Cole Armour, for which Armour was very surprised.

Cole enjoys expressing himself through his vocal abilities and songs for which he feels emotion.

On November 18, 2011 Armour was the headlining act at his “Kids helping Kids” benefit at the Red Robinson Show Theate; the sold out show was in support of the David Foster Foundation. The foundation helps kids who need life saving organ donations.

“The venue sold out this year and we will be doing it again next year,” said Cole.

With the help of teachers at LFAS, Cole balances school and his vocal endeavors. He sings every day, whether it’s a weekday or weekend. Also, he does his vocal touch ups with one of North America’s best, Spencer Welch, in Vancouver.

When asked how he keeps it together, he replied: “Keep everything organized, that’s the key, if it isn’t organized you won’t keep caught up.”
