Tom Lowe is the host of OWN's reality series "Real Life: The Musical." He previously was one of the top 40 contestants on Season 6 of "American Idol" before getting cut. 

Tom Lowe is a British born singer, actor and composer who was a member of the teenage boy band North and South. The band's single, "Man, Not a Boy" made it all the way up to #7 on the British charts. The band starred in the BAFTA nominated hit BBC TV series "No Sweat," for which Tom composed and wrote the lyrics for the soundtrack at the age of eighteen. He made the record as one of the youngest commercial composers in British musical history. Classically trained, Tom started studying the piano at age 7 and took lessons for ten years. He also took up the clarinet at age 10 and reached the highest level of achievement (British Associated Board Music Examinations, Grade 8 distinction) at age 16. He sang in the local church and school choirs for 10 and 7 years respectively, received the Bishops chorister award, was appointed head chorister of both choirs and performed solos all around the cathedrals, churches and chateaux of England and France. His singing as a young chorister led to a second prize in the British Choirboy of the Year Competition at age 13. He began composing soon after taking up the piano and by the age of 21 had written over 100 pop songs.

Besides co-starring in the Hollywood premiere of "Back to Bacharach and David," and at the Hollywood Bowl in a major production of "Les Miserables" as Enjolras, he also opened the Las Vegas hit, "Vegas! The Show," at Planet Hollywood Casino and Resort. He has also released an album entitled "Back to Mine" that features a collection of his original songs in Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, French and English.

Tom was honored to be the first non-American to sing The Star Spangled Banner at Fenway Park. His rendition of "God Bless America" at Dodger's Stadium reached a televised audience of millions.

A 2005 graduate of Harvard University, Tom majored in East Asian Studies, and speaks fluent Mandarin along with four other languages. His ties to the emergent Chinese market are credited to numerous visits to China, many of them sponsored by the Chinese government. Tom appeared on many TV shows in China, being interviewed in Mandarin by prominent Chinese TV personalities. Tom is the Harvard cultural attaché to the famous Shaolin Temple, responsible for training such top Chinese film celebrities as Jet Li. His fellowship at Harvard enabled him to spend four months traveling the ancient Silk Road through Xinjiang and Gansu provinces in northwest and central China, as an editor for the best selling student travel guide LET'S GO. His esteemed Harvard thesis on Tang Dynasty frontier poetry won him an honors degree and was contributed to the Harvard Yenching Library following Magna Cum Laude recognition. These cultural advantages, coupled with his first hand, viable experience in the world of pop music and Broadway musicals, has afforded him a very unique expertise, for a Westerner, in the commercial Chinese and Asian entertainment scene.

Tom resides in Los Angeles and London.
