    Well ... I would'nt change a thing ... every little piece makes up a beautiful picture . I had a friend over a few weeks back and played him some material from " The Xfactor " .. his one comment was " what a wonderful supporting Father " ... his Mother and Father are part of that colourful painting . I really do think there is a long way to go before we see the finished product . Thankyou Altiyan ,for the pleasure you have given me .

    I absolutely love that Altiyan is still so, so strong after having such a tough time. He's such an amazing singer, and he puts so much passion into his music. His singing really touches me, like noone else has. It's truly amazing.

    I genuinely know what its like to be handed a bad deal in life, and I still question myself daily, on what have I ever done to deserve such a raw deal, but I am so glad, happy and proud that another precious soul has been given an opportunity to change their path and hopefully find ever lasting happiness, along with life's ups and downs. You go Altiyan, I love your sincerity and passion, it is truely refreshing to see a person be themselves, when left of centre is not normally well recipricated. xx

    Musically, Altiyan identifies Prince as his source of inspiration. But in life, there’s only one guy who fits the bill. “Dad has been broken and all his pain transformed into the most compassionate heart that I’ve ever known. The sacrifices he’s made are beyond belief. When all the other parents were saying ‘get a real job,’ he was buying my band instruments. It’s such an incredible thing winning X Factor. I’ve been trying to do something for dad for so long. Since I was 10 years old, I was promising, ‘Dad, I’m going to come save you and get us a better life.’ It’s unbelievable to see him witness the birth of that promise.”

    By Altiyan’s admission, his father has endured a wretched life. Abandoned as a youth, his dad struggled through a difficult upbringing. Altiyan was born in Mount Isa, the North West Queensland mining town. There was a lot of movement. The family too often made tracks, but there was also a lot of love. As a young teen, Altiyan relocated to Sydney’s North Shore, and its there that his parents put down permanent roots.

    And it was at this time when Altiyan connected with music. The aspiring artist gathered some like-minded friends to form a band, the core of which would play-on for the next two decades under various guises. “It’s amazing to look back now, but in those days my drummer’s kick was a punching bag and his snare was a plastic bag wrapped around a bucket. We started with such extremely raw tools.”

    Story behind the Man

    Post by Admin on Mon 29 Nov 2010, 7:55 pm

    Forklift driver Altiyan Childs had almost given up his dream of becoming a musician. Born in Mt Isa, but growing up in Sydney's North Shore, Altiyan Childs formed his first band at age 12.

    Now at 35, he's finally getting the chance he thinks he deserves. Having enjoyed some success 10 years ago with the band "Masonia" (they reached Number 41 on the album charts), Altiyan decided to retire from music.

    "I lost the drive to keep plugging away, sending demos."

    Altiyan's father encouraged him to audition for The X Factor. "He saw how much I was struggling being

    away from music," he says.

    Altiyanís first audition didn't go so well - but the judges saw something in and and asked him to return the next day for another chance.

    And now he has ended up with Ronan Keating as his mentor in the Over 25s group - "I instantly felt a connection with him - I love that man. He is so inspiring to me."

    His musical inspiration: "Prince always affected me, Van Morrison spoke to me."

    What is he looking forward to most in the competition? "As soon as the song starts, I

    lose myself and find myself at the same time."
