Conor Taggart & Victoria McClements originally began singing together at weddings as singing waiters, normally falling over with a tray of cutlery and bursting into song! What they didn’t know though, was that they would soon fall for each other. In late 2019, Conor and Victoria’s friendship grew into a loving relationship.
When Covid19 hit, Conor & Victoria isolated together in Victoria’s grandparents’ house and with the country in complete lockdown and a lot of time to kill, they began singing together. Taking original anthems and transforming them into duets, coming up with their own arrangements and harmonies and trying to make themselves different from the standard duo out there; it started to become something very special.
Initially, this was all in aid of the wonderful health service and key-workers who had been fighting the horrific battle of C19. Every Thursday night, Conor & Victoria would stand in the street and serenade the neighbours to show their appreciation for the amazing frontline workers saving lives. Within a few weeks of lockdown, their Thursday night show had become very popular and a few of their videos reached over 150,000 views. Not only were they delighted with the positive response but loved bringing a little bit of cheer to those at a very difficult time.
Fast forward 6 months and they have now released their own album ‘Out of the Darkness’, a music video, and are writing original material.
They are also currently taking wedding bookings and planning their theatre show. It’s safe to say the future is bright for Bello Duo and they can’t wait to share the journey with you all.
