Mr Ray Coates (Songwriter/singer)
“Who’s he then?” I hear many of you ask. Well folks, Ray is one lucky gentleman for he feared the worst back in 2008, went to see his GP and, luckily, was referred straight away for tests etc. They found what Ray had feared – Cancer. The journey starts here.
Cancer of the tonsil/s is somewhat rare but with fast, expert treatment it can be eradicated and the voice saved-which is a far better outcome than many of us could ever hope for! Not only has fast, expert treatment saved Ray’s voice, it has left him with the ability to carry on his love of music and singing! I have met with Ray, who lives in Aylesbury, and welcomed him to “20-20 Voice” Cancer and in return Ray has not only become our Aylesbury/Bucks representative but also our ‘anthem‘ as we promote his heartfelt song “The Voice Within” to raise not only our profile but funds as well. Ray is currently completing an album which will go on release sometime soon.He has his own facebook page for you to visit.
Please check out the links provided and read all about this courageous man who has retained the ability to entertain us all through song. Ray has a theatre (singing, not medical ) appointment looming and also school play performances as well as growing media attention.
(We now have Ray’s permission to use his song as our anthem! )
