Jay Kamiraz had a difficult childhood, growing up in a family where no-one worked. At the age of 16, problems at home led to him becoming homeless.
At 17, he was brutally attacked and put in hospital. An operation saved his life but he suffered internal injuries, which still affect him now.
Jay began to get his life back on track and eventually moved into his own flat.
He got involved in a project to raise money for Tsunami victims, bringing together singers to form a choir called 'Souls of Prophecy Gospel Choir'. The choir was so successful Jay realised he could turn it into a business.
With help from The Prince's Trust, Jay set up JK Creative Arts Management Ltd, providing entertainment for weddings, corporate events, film and TV.
Jay's business is now booming, and he has also set up "Sing to Smile" - a programme to help build relationships with all communities and business sectors.
