Pagkatapos maging isang malaking celebrity sa Asia ang singer na si Christian Bautista, ngayon ay sa United Kingdom naman siya gumagawa ng pangalan.
Isa sa featured artist si Christian sa New Music section ng Music Week, isang kilalang online music magazine sa U.K.
Ang naturang article ay sinulat ng writer na si Victoria Dowling at ito ang pagkaka-describe niya kay Christian:
??Warm tones and soul that add real quality to his music, so expect some soaring music you can loose yourself in. It looks like the UK may have just found a new star.??
Ni-release ng GMA-7 singer-actor ang kanyang single na ??Who Is She To Me?? noong 2015 sa U.K. Nakapasok ito agad sa U.K. iTunes Top 50 at sa Top 20 ng King of Spins.
Ang Filipino singer ay na-feature rin sa Huffington Post article titled "Kimberly Jesika & Nancy Laws Chat??s [sic] it up with Filipino Super Star Singer Christian Bautista."
Sa Huffington Post interview (na mapapakinggan sa pammagitan ng Sound Cloud, kinuwento ni Christian na nagsimula siya bilang choir boy noon.
Nag-aral siya ng Landscape Architecture, kung kaya inamin niya, "I had no plans of singing professionally. "This singing contest [Star in a Million] came in and we said, 'Maybe we should try it.' I tried and got in the first few rounds and when I got to the semi-final rounds, right then and there, that's when I said to myself, 'This is what I want to do for the rest of my life. This is the purpose why I'm here.'
"I did not win the contest. I was in fourth place. I actually thought it would be over by then but my manager Carlo Orosa said maybe we should try another label. I auditioned for Warner Music Philippines and they heard me because I used to sing Josh Groban songs.
"They said when they heard me, they said they would call me. After two weeks, they called and said they had an offer for me, a contract and even a song for you that has been waiting for two years. We didn't know who to give it to but when you arrived in our office, we knew it was you.
"That song was 'The Way You Look At Me.' That was the biggest hit single of my life. It changed my life completely."
Pagdating sa music industry ng Pilipinas, ito ang naging observation ni Christian: "In the Philippines, we focus more on the vocals. We focus more on the emotion. We focus more on the rawness and the feeling of the music."
Pag-amin rin ng Asia's Romantic Balladeer, "I tried dancing and it didn't really work on me."
Nang tanungin siya tungkol sa kanyang love life, natawa si Christian bago sinabi, "I like to keep things private. I'm not married but I'm with someone."
Parte si Christian ng cast ng epic telefantasya na Encantadia 2016. Next year naman ay magiging bahagi siya ng Philippine staging ng musical na Jersey Boys.
