Matthew Boutros of Ottawa is just 19 year old and ready for his shot at stardom. The young singer won a little known song contest called THE SHOT last month in Kitchener, encouraged by a talent scout who spotted him on Youtube. He beat out 200 other contestants and took home the 25 thousand dollar prize. Matthew also won a one time world wide distribution deal with Entertainment One Music to record at Toronto's Award winning MetalWorks Studios. Matthew dropped by the 1310 Studio to spend some time with me chatting about his hopes and dreams for the future. And he sang the Christmas classic Baby Please Come Home, which he has recorded as a single. He is accompanied by his stepdad Blain Wolf, who calls himself a very amateur guitarist, who just learned this song so he could play along on this acoustic version.
Look for Matthew's CD. It will blow you socks off.
