Regular readers of Staff News may remember our feature on NHS Forth Valley’s very own singing doctor, consultant physician Dr Jey Selwyn, who performs with his family as the Sunbeam Singers.
Now the Selwyn family are back in the limelight again after son Colet became a contestant in the latest series of BBC’s The Voice.
Colet, a 21 year old student, performed a rendition of country song ‘This Ole House’ surprising the judges with his deep voice. Despite getting the crowd and most of the judges on their feet, he didn’t quite manage to get any of the judges to turn round, a move required to put him through to the next stage in the competition.
Dr Selwyn said seeing his son on stage at The Voice was a wonderful feeling.
He said: “It was a thrill to hear from him about the various trips to different studios and it was great to see Colet ‘in his element’ as he went through an assortment of different preliminary stages.
“I was so proud of his singing and the way he carried himself on the televised audition. I enjoyed the whole experience, especially the reaction from the audience and the judges as soon as he started singing and after they saw who was singing. I’m looking forward to seeing him utilising his gift more and more in the future!”
