Michael Rice

Michael Rice will represent the United Kingdom at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest after winning 'Eurovision: You Decide', the nation's national final. He lives in Hartlepool in the North East of England with his mum, stepdad, sister and brother. Growing up he worked at McDonalds, but always dreamt of being a singer.

Michael started performing at a young age when his grandma would take him busking. His career started when a video of him singing a Years & Years song went viral.

Michael is well known to the UK public as the winner of the first series of the BBC Entertainment show All Together Now which he won in 2018. During the series, he got all 100 judges – including Spice Girl Geri Halliwell - up on their feet. Michael put most of his £50,000 prize towards his mum's The Waffle and Crepe Shack in Hartlepool.

Michael is currently working on his debut EP with producers Pete Boxsta Martin and Dantae Johnson who have written and produced tracks for Jessie J, Missy Elliott and James Arthur.

Lyrics of Bigger Than Us

Hear these words
That I sing to you
I will make it clear
It’s me, and you
We can have this love
That we never lose
It’s bigger than us
Take my hand
and I’ll lead you home
Can you understand
You will never be alone

It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything we see
Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger

I won’t give up
And I won’t let go
Cause this kind of love
Is gonna be our only hope

It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything we see
Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger

Bigger, bigger
Oh, it’s bigger
Bigger, bigger

It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
This kind of love
It’s bigger than everything we see

Oh, so much bigger
Bigger than us

It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger than us
I can feel it
It’s bigger than everything we see
Cause I can feel the universe
When I’m feeling you breathe
It’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than you and me
It’s bigger

Bigger, bigger
It’s bigger than
It’s bigger than
Oh, bigger, bigger
Oh, it’s bigger
