The Voice Australia highlights – Chris Sebastian
Chris Sebastian is none other than the younger brother of ARIA award-winning singer, Guy Sebastian! But this is a fact, though made known on the show, is something Chris is trying to work past to show that he can be an artist on his own right, without his brother.

The 23 year-old from Melbourne had the vote of confidence from both Seal and Delta after performing Beyonce’s hit single ‘Halo’. In the end, he chose Seal as his mentor, which resulted in an emotional response from Delta.
Despite auditioning for The Voice, Chris received some limited exposure last year with his single ‘Flow’ released on iTunes in June 2011. Check out the music video here:
