VIDEO: Saltash Singer Wows Judges on The Voice
6:01am 27th January 2014
The sister of the Saltash man who wowed judges on The Voice explains how her cancer helped persuade him to audition.
Millions saw trainee solicitor Myles Evans sing in public for the first time - doing it in front of Tom Jones, Kylie, will.i.am and the Kaiser Chief's Ricky Wilson.
The Falmouth star snapped him up for his team on the BBC One show on Saturday.
Sister Davida is having chemo and surgery. She joked: "I thought it was about time somebody pushed him and going through chemotherapy is the perfect time for emotional blackmail really. He couldn't say no to his big sister."
Myles was overwhelmed when he received a standing ovation at the end of his song, an acoustic version of High Hopes.
Although the twenty-six year old admitted being nervous during the performance, he was praised by the judges.
The former Saltash.net student told the show "My sister was diagnosed with cancer in February last year. It's obviously a very serious condition. She's undergone chemotherapy treatment and she's going to have to undergo surgery as well."
Myles now goes through to round two of the competition, as part of Ricky Wilson's team.
Watch his audition (and his cheek bones) here...6:01am 27th January 2014
