To begin with, Champion was raised in Southampton, and was educated at the Cantell Secondary School. Later, he studied at the Royal Hospital School, and afterwards went on to study anthropology at University College, London. While at university, he also worked as a bouncer for a bar to support his living expenses.

Coldplay was not his first band – prior to its foundation, Will played in the British independent band Fat Hamster, in which he was responsible for the bass and the piano. In 1996 he founded the hit band Coldplay, with Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland and Guy Berryman. The Coldplay album “Parachutes” is devoted to Will’s mother Sara, who was lost her fight against cancer just before the debut of the album in 2000. In the UK, the album reached the Top 10, but in the US just 51st place, selling more than two million copies. It also won Brit and Grammy Awards for the Best Album, as well as NME Award for the Best Single – “Yellow”. Champion sang the song “Death Will Never Conquer” during the Viva la Vida tour, the version of which is on the 2009 release of the album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends”. Also for the new album, released in 2011 entitled “Mylo Xyloto”, he contributed to the background of the songs. In 2014, the band released the album “Ghost Stories” which topped the music charts in most European countries, the US, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Canada. In addition, it has been certified multi platinum in most of the above mentioned countries. It has been named the Top Rock Album in the Billboard Music Awards in 2015. The following year, they released their seventh studio album “A Head Full of Dreams” (2016) which was also very successful.

Moreover, Will also had a short guest appearance in the television series “Game of Thrones” (2013); at the Red Wedding he was seen as one of the musicians who performed the song “The Rains of Castamere”.

Finally, in the personal life of the musician, he married Marianne Dark in 2003, and they are the parents of three children. In spare time, he’s an avid soccer fan, of Southampton FC.
