Крис Доран родился 22 ноября 1979 года в городе Уотерфорд на южном берегу Ирландии. С детства он мечтал представлять Ирландию на конкурсе Евровидение и наконец его мечта сбылась.
Основные интересы Криса - это единоборства и музыка. У него черный пояс 4го уровня по кикбоксингу. Он выиграл 8 ирландских чемпионатов по этому виду спорта. Крис следит за своим здоровьем, поэтому он не курит и не пьет. Он все время работает - будь то уроки по самозащите или выступления в местных клубах.
В 6 лет Крис начал играть на пианино, но только 10 лет спустя он открыл, что у него на самом деле неплохой вокал. Недавно он записал сольный альбом, для которого он сам написал музыку и арранжировки, в него вошли песни различных стилей, от кантри и регги до рока и джаза.
Отец Криса умер, когда ему был всего год и его вырастила мама Маргарет. У него трое братьев и одна сестра и он не женат.

Chris Doran was born on the 22nd of November 1979, and hails from Waterford City on the lovely South Coast of Ireland. Since he was a child he dreamed of representing Ireland in the Eurovision and now he is over the moon to be making this dream come true.
Chris' main interests are fitness and music, he is a fourth degree black belt and teacher of KickBoxing. He has won eight All-Ireland medals and countless competitions in the same sport. Chris values his good health and so does not smoke or drink. As a hard working lad, he likes to keep himself busy by performing in local clubs and pubs and teaching self-defence.
At the age of 6, Chris began playing piano but it wasn't until ten years later that he discovered he actually had a decent singing voice. He recently recorded an album which he wrote and arranged himself and cites his musical influences as being a mix of many sources; from Country to Reggae with some Rock and Jazz thrown in for good measure.
Chris was raised by his Mum, Margaret, as his Dad died when he was just a year old. He has 3 brothers and one sister and is currently single.

I could see my future
When I'm looking in your eyes
And I can sense security
Just by you being in my life

A little voice inside my head
Says you're an angel in disguise
Without you I feel hopeless
Without you I'm deprived

I wish I could describe it
All the love I feel inside
Maybe I can find the words
That would make you realize

My life seems near perfect
When I got you in my arms
That's when I feel wholesome
That's when I'm with you

And if my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You're the one who's made a winner out of me

I lie alone to touch you
And it comes as a surprise
That we spent so long apart
Even more that I survived

And if I'm speaking frankly
There's only one thing I can say
That I'm falling for you, baby
Falling further every day

And if my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You made me your winner

If my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You're the one who's made a winner out of me
