Huw was born in the small market town of Brecon, Mid Wales, and for the past twenty years has performed as a professional opera and concert artist. When he was a teenager Huw surrendered his life to the Lord through the work of a local church youth group. His faith has been a source of great support during his years as a professional singer.
His singing career has taken him to many parts of the world and he has performed for Royalty and Heads of State. Huw has sung the role of 'Piangi' in Andrew Lloyd Webber's “Phantom of the Opera” at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's prestigious West End and has appeared on stage at The Royal Opera House Covent Garden London, Carnegie Hall New York, and Sydney Concert Hall amongst others. Huw's versatility as a tenor enables him to sing contemporary as well as classical Christian music and his ministry has always proved a great blessing to his audiences. Huw is passionate about sharing his faith with others and in 2002 followed God’s calling into full-time ministry.
Many of the hymns and songs Huw sings in concerts and church services bring a message of hope and encouragement to the listener. They express Huw’s testimony in music and speak of his Saviour who has led him so far and continues to give him daily direction.
Huw’s life story is one of God’s faithfulness and it is from many experiences of faith that he is able to minister with heart-felt empathy to those who need spiritual support. The Priday family motto for over 500 years has been “Deus Provibit” meaning “God will Provide”.
In 2004 Huw co-produced the film documentary “A Diary of Revival” and published books about the great 1904 Welsh Awakening, re-telling the story of Evan Roberts, a young coal miner and blacksmith whom God used to touch a nation and the world. During 2004 Huw appeared on many UK television broadcasts celebrating the Centenary of the Welsh Revival, often singing the love song of the revival “Dyma gariad fel y moroedd” (Here is love vast as the ocean).
