Mumbai. Welsh singer Sir Thomas John Woodward is famously known as Tom Jones. Tom, who started his career with a Top 10 hit string in 1960, is still very active. Tom confessed that he had prematurely matured because of becoming a father at the age of just 17. Talking to FemaleFirst.com from dot k, singer Tom Jones said that ‘I became very energetic at a very young age because of being a father. Because when you get married and you become a father, you quickly become matured. When Mark was born, I was only 17 years old and my wife was 16 years old. Suddenly many responsibilities were started to be realized. It was a strange feeling ‘. Tom Jones’s wife Melinda died in 2016. Talking about his wife, Jones says, ‘When I started my career, he supported me a lot. She used to be with me in all things. She knew what I was trying to do and used to give hundred percent support in all my work. Tom further told that his wife once said, ‘Whatever you want to achieve, I will help you in that, you have to reach the place where you want to go or we want to go. Together we will achieve this milestone ‘. Now, even at the age of 80, Tom Jones is a very energetic singer. On the show called ‘One More Cup of Coffee’, he said, ‘When you get older, you start listening differently, which is quite different from what you hear in young age. These days Tom is working on different types of lyrics. Even today, the tinkle containing youth remains in his voice. On this, Jones says that even at the age of 80, my voice is still 30 years old.
