May I respectfully introduce myself ; My name is Scott-Paul Young.
I have been in the entertainment industry almost all my life as a Performer, Director, and Producer of all types of shows worldwide
since leaving school at the age of 14!
I am a prodigy of the late Eric Cowell, father of Simon of X Factor fame. I lived with the family in their home while I worked as singer presenter in London’s famous Talk of The Town Theatre
and later at the purpose built Night Out Theatre in Birmingham and also the Golden Garter night club in Wythenshawe Manchester presenting many world famous known Artists.

I have recently been working on a song I have called “Amen Bible Rap” with a desire to make it enjoyable and easy for people of all ages to memorise the books of the Bible and
inspire them to apply the scriptures to their daily life and reap the many benefits they receive when they do.
Worth a thought?
The Bible is the world’s most published book – around 3 billion! And the least read!
Lots of people lose interest soon after they start to read the bible because they can’t remember or don’t know where to find the Bible Books they may be referred to.
They can memorise them easily and enjoyably with aid of “Amen Bible Rap” “The Only Failure is in Not Trying”
