The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

HERE’S one act to watch on the new se­ries of BBC1’s song con­test, TheVoice. Ly­dia Lucy ( below), while not Jewish, is a singer with top Lon­don sim­chah band Totem. She got through her blind au­di­tion on Satur­day, picked by judge, and will re­turn to sing next month. The band, formed five years ago, has sup­plied a steady stream of con­tes­tants to the show. Jamie John­son, who still oc­ca­sion­ally sings with it, was Voice run­ner-up in 2014, while front man, chazan’s son Moni Tivony, and an­other per­former Trevor Fran­cis have also ap­peared.

Ly­dia will hope to em­u­late Alexandra Burke, a for­mer X Fac­tor win­ner, who also sang on

the sim­chah scene.
