The ‘Voice of Ireland’ judges this year in their spinning red chairs are; Rachel Stevens formally a member of ‘S Club 7’, Kian Egan former member of boy band ‘Westlife’, Bressie (Niall Breslin) latter Irish musician, former Westmeath Gaelic footballer / Leinster Rugby player and Thurles born Una Foden (Una Healy) a member of ‘The Saturdays’ all girl band since 2008.
Of African descent, the talented jazz, swing and pop performer Jo Petit came to live here in Ireland from Mauritius in 2006 and has been attracting audiences ever since with his voice, which ranges from Sam Cooke to Stevie Wonder.
“Judge Kian Egan you may not yet be fully aware of the real talent you has managed to acquire here, so do tutor him well, as all Thurles will be watching with more than just a certain pride.”
