TRAFFORD'S well-known rat pack singer, Wayne Devlin has become the go-to man for top celebrities.

Performing for people from heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury to local Coronation Street favourite Kym Marsh, Wayne has become the must have vocalist to the stars.

Wayne first sang first at Woodhouse Junior School in Urmston aged eight with his own take on Leaning on a Lamp Post. He honed his skills in pubs and clubs in his early days and soon rose to the top in Manchester before he head off to tour Europe and finally travelled to the USA.

In New York he was spotted performing in a smokey bar and was whisked away to Las Vegas where he performed for Wayne Newton at the Flamingo Casino then joining a rat pack trio at the Golden Nugget Casino.

Las Vegas Entertainment critic, Gaye Blann, said: "If there is hope for the future and having the delivery of beautiful music - Devlin is the delivery man."

Simon Gross-Aka Showbiz added: "Triple threat singer with the sounds and style of Sinatra himself I felt like I was transported back to Ceasars Palace, Las Vegas Wayne Devlin is a talent to watch out for."

On his return to Manchester he become the resident swing singer of the Trafford Centre and under the management of his wife, Val Devlin, he took on the corporate scene and has been performing for top celebrities ever since.

Peter Fury trainer of Tyson Fury said: "Wayne Devlin has performed for us on a few occasions. For a huge charity event at Bolton Football Club and we hired him again to sing Tyson into the ring when he was to fight Haye. A true gentleman and fantastic singer"

Jimmi Harkishin from Coronation Street, added: "If you’ve not heard Wayne Devlin sing then I highly recommend that you do. He’s an amazing talent."

Despite the hectic work schedule, Wayne never lost his roots. Over the last couple of years, he has raised around a quarter of a million pounds for various Manchester based charities. Wayne has received several awards for his work and still finds the time to put on concerts and performances in his local community to raised money for those in need.

Wayne said: "I really enjoy singing at the high profile celebrity balls and functions and I’ve worked really hard to get to this level with the support and assistance of my wife Val. However, I also enjoy singing at small community events such as local charity events and the Christmas lights switch on. I'm really very grateful to the Urmston and Trafford community for their ongoing support throughout my career. I’m turning my full attention to my acting career now but will still keep singing as I absolutely love it."

Wayne has appeared in several popular television series including Peaky Blinders, Citizen Khan, The A Word, Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Happy Valley to name a few and is constantly auditioning for new roles to add to his resume.
