A musician has raised more than £2,000 for charity by performing as Michael Buble and Olly Murs.

Johnny Routledge, of Ash Fall, Witham, took to the stage in the Witham Town Football Club as a tribute act to the famous singers in memory of his late cousin, David Routledge, 40, who died from a heart attack last year.

Mr Routledge, a dad of two, has been singing professionally for five years and decided to do the show to give something back to anyone who would donate to his chosen charity, the British Heart Foundation.

The singer, who goes by the stage name Johnny Mack, sold all 250 tickets weeks before the performance and managed to raise £1,100 for the British Heart Foundation on the night with a raffle and auction plus ticket sales.
