Danny O'Donoghue: 'The Voice UK inspired kids to become musicians'

By
Danny O'Donoghue has said that he believes The Voice UK inspired children to become musicians.

The Script singer explained that it was important to have a member of a band as a coach on the BBC One show in order to promote that genre of music.

"After The Voice, kids were coming up to me and saying, 'I learned to play guitar like you did on the U2 tune' or 'I learned piano like you played on that song'," he told the Daily Star.

"No-one was saying, 'I learned how to slag off my mates at school', which a lot of other shows promote.

"It would have been a crime not to have someone from a band up there, not just for us to get more recognition, but for bands in general.

"Bands aren't getting played on radio the way they used to, especially ­guitar-playing bands."

The second series of The Voice UK, which will have fewer live shows and more blind auditions and battle rounds, started filming at Manchester's MediaCityUK earlier this month.
