Chris de Burgh' s daughter Rosanna Davison was Miss World 2003


By Steve Bennett

The rise in popularity of Soundalikes and Tribute Acts has been a fairly modern phenomenon in show business.

Soundalike/Tribute Acts enable a venue to entertain fans of a particular artiste when the booking of the original entertainer concerned would be impossible due to fee and venue size.

The most notable of the Chris de Burgh Soundalike/Tribute Acts have been Ian Moor, Alan James and Chris Higgins.

Chris de Burgh Soundalikes/Tribute Acts featuring Ian Moor, Alan James and Chris Higgins


Ian Moor performing on 'Stars In Their Eyes' 1999

Ian Moor first came to the public attention when he won the UK TV show Stars In Their Eyes in 1999 ('Stars In Their Eyes' is a show where ordinary people dress up as stars they admire, and perform for an audience in the style of their hero.)

Ian then went on to win the title of 'Stars In Their Eyes Champion of Champions' and appear on the show performing together with Chris de Burgh.  READ MORE ABOUT IAN MOOR
