I Didn’t See That Coming
  • I Didn’t See That Coming

  • Andrea Begley stunned the nation with her unique voice and was the brilliant winner of series two of The Voice UK. This is the exclusive story of her journey to the top. From her childhood in Ireland, coming to terms with the loss of 90% of her vision, to her university days and her passion for politics and above all, music.

    The Voice was the opportunity Andrea had been waiting for and she made sure nothing would hold her back. In this book, Andrea reveals the moments of terror and triumph, the pressure and euphoria, what it’s really like to work with Danny O’Donoghue and what it feels like to have finally achieved her dream against all odds.

    An incredible voice, an incredible woman. This is her story.

Andrea Begley won The Voice UK in 2013, and her first album, The Message, was released by Capitol Records later the same year. When Andrea was six years old, she started losing her sight, and now only has 10% residual vision, but she’s never let that stop her. When she applied for The Voice UK, she was working as a civil servant, studying for a Masters Degree in law, learning the guitar and gigging around Belfast. Andrea lives in County Tyrone.
