Singer Ronan Patrick John Keating popularly known as Ronan Keating stated that once he was rejected by a renowned music producer and told that he could not sing. The singer also said that he was about to be dropped from his Irish music group named Boyzone.
The When You Say Nothing At All singer, who later achieved huge fame and success as Boyzone member and also as a solo artist, said he had worked very hard to come a long way since his rejection as an artiste.
"My music career started with getting cigarettes and bottles of beer thrown at us... A producer kept saying, 'The blonde one can't sing - get rid of him', and I knew I could be dropped in a heartbeat. I had to prove them wrong," Keating said in a statement.
After enjoying a long stretch of success with his music career, Keating now intends to try his hands at acting.
"I'm genuinely excited about it. It's been an issue I've had for most of my career. When you're in a boy band, you're fitting the mould that people want you to be. I spent years foolishly trying to prove myself, trying to make everybody happy." Said Keating.
"I should have concentrated on the people that mattered to me. It's a career I've been trying to do for years and years and years. I've been trying for almost as long as the other career," Keating added further.
