Cassius Henry is a singer from London.[1] He had two record deals; firstly with Edel in 2002, which spawned the #31 hit Broke, and secondly in 2004 with MCA, which spawned a #56 hit with The One, which featured Freeway.[2]

Henry auditioned for The Voice UK at age thirty-two with "Closer", originally by Ne-Yo.,[1] appearing on the third of four audition shows. Two coaches, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue elected for Henry to join their teams—with Henry selecting Jessie J. During the battle rounds, Henry sung "Beat It", originally by Michael Jackson, against twenty-nine-year-old David Faulkner—with Jessie crowning him the winner.[1] In the second live show, Henry performed "Paradise" by Coldplay—proceeding to the next show as a result of the public vote.[1] In the fourth live show, Henry performed Adele's "Turning Tables"—finding himself in the bottom three alongside Toni Warne and Becky Hill; from which he was eliminated from the competition.[1]
