Each time he tries to speak, he stutters. No matter how hard he tries, his tongue feels tied up in knots. That is, until one day when Harrison discovers his talent … Harrison’s Song tells the story of how Harrison overcame adversity because he just wanted to share the love and words inside him.
‘Being a kid is tough and overcoming challenges can be hard! But when you find what makes YOU special, you can do almost anything. So find your voice, find your talent and have faith in yourself.’ — Harrison Craig
Harrison Craig won The Voice in 2013, but for many years he struggled to find his own voice. He battled with a stutter for most of his younger life, which made everyday conversation very difficult for him. Often the subject of bullying, he turned to his love of singing, which is how the story behind Harrison's Song began.
He is now a professional singer, has visited and performed in cities around the world, worked with Seal and Olivia-Newton John, sung alongside the likes of Leo Sayer and John Paul Young as part of an ensemble Christmas performance, featured on TV in Australia and overseas, has had a hit platinum status record and toured the country with sold out shows. This book tells the story of how Harrison overcame adversity through the gift of song. It was the gift of song that enabled Harrison to share his love and his words that were within. Through this book, Harrison hopes to inspire children to search for and use their own talents to overcome all challenges that they face.
