The judges were correct; he is extremely talented. Matt Dodd, 68, a grandfather from Dublin, has been singing since he was ten years old. The bus driver could yell notes like no one else, but the majority of his singing was overheard by older passengers on his route. “I sang for them on the bus; I sang for them in the center,” he said in an interview with the Irish Mirror.
“Every week, there’s Mass, and I’ll sing and all that.” Sr., as a singer, has always enjoyed watching television talent shows. He even advanced to the third round of X-Factor Ireland. However, during his audition for The Voice of Ireland, he “didn’t even walk in the door.”
Matt’s grandchildren approached him one night while watching Ireland’s Got Talent. “It all started back in November,” he explained. All of the grandchildren had half a day off, and one of them asked, “Grandpa, could you go in there?” “ “It all started when she filmed me singing in the house and sent it over.”
