Mark Selby Among Snooker Stars Singing for NHS

Familiar snooker faces from around the world have got together to raise money for NHS charities.

Former world champions Mark Selby, Ken Doherty, and Shaun Murphy are among the snooker stars singing for NHS fundraising this week.

The Snooker Family, created by World Seniors Snooker, released a video of players from past and present offering a rendition of “Every Breath You Take” by The Police.

Proceeds raised from the video will go to the NHS, which has been at the front line of the UK’s fight against the coronavirus crisis.



The video is introduced by Canada’s Cliff Thorburn, the 1980 world champion, before short verses are provided by the likes of Selby, Doherty and Murphy.

Fellow former world champions Stuart Bingham, Joe Johnson, and Dennis Taylor are others who showed off their singing talents, with guest appearances from numerous others.

The four-minute long video features familiar faces from the World Women’s Snooker Tour and the World Disability Tour as well, including respective champions Reanne Evans and Daniel Blunn.

Messages from Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, and referee Michaela Tabb anchor the project, urging people to adhere to government advice during the the COVID-19 pandemic.

The video of the snooker stars singing for NHS was released on the day that the World Snooker Championship final was originally due to take place in Sheffield.

Like most other sports, the tournament had been postponed as the majority of nations in Europe attempt to overcome the challenges involved in dealing with the coronavirus.
