The Take That star saw at first-hand how some of the troops like to spend their spear time, and also that there are a number of very talented artists among the troops stationed at the army camp.

Gary’s discovery came as a result of a documentary he was making for ITV about his visit to the war torn country, where he seeks out talented singers and musicians to form a band to entertain the troops.

The graffiti art is mainly the work of the Apache helicopter crew, who started creating their master pieces in 2006 when the first crew started to record their time in Afghanistan.

However, among the very talented British service personnel that Gary met at Camp Bastion was a very impressive young singer name Johnny Marenghi.

Johnny works as a medic in the armed forces but loves singing. The 21 year old who joined the armed forces at the age of 17, impressed the Take That star and X Factor judge with his vocals.

Gary persuaded the young soldier to perform in front of his colleagues and they all seems very impressive with his rendition of the Bruno Mar’s track ‘ Amazing’.
