A talented doo-wop group were given the chance to perform privately for one of music’s most popular artists.

The TestostaTones, whose members hail from Waveney, were invited to perform for Olly Murs as he celebrated his birthday with friends.

Much to his delight, Murs was treated to a special rendition of Happy Birthday, before the group launched into Stevie Wonder’s classic version. They later provided their own take on one of Murs’ best known hits, ‘Troublemaker’.

TestostaTones member, Stephen Amer, said: “The opportunity came about after a friend of the group showed Olly’s manager a video of us performing, and he said we’d be perfect for a private performance on his birthday.

“I think it took Olly a few bars to realise we were performing Troublemaker because our version was such a different take on the original, but he really enjoyed it. We were able to spend time with him afterwards and he was a lovely guy.”
