Starsky and Hutch star David Soul has been made president of a Welsh male voice choir in Three Crosses, near Swansea.
The American star of the 70s TV cop show was impressed by the choir on a visit to Wales especially by their version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
David Soul, who's 72, has accepted the honorary role of president of Cantorion Llanmadog based at Three Crosses, near Swansea.
Knowing how noted the Welsh are for their love of music and as a musician myself, I was blown away by Cantorion Llanmadog.
Its eclectic repertoire includes traditional Welsh songs, religious songs, tunes from musical theatre and even Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. As a big fan of their music, I am very proud to be a patron of this wonderful choir. You must come and hear them.
He was staying at a place owned by one of our members who mentioned the choir and invited him to rehearsals with his wife.
He was most appreciative - and he went to the pub with one or two of them afterwards. It was most surreal.
The choir hope David will be at their annual concert at Capel Y Crwys in Three Crosses on Saturday in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Paolo Nutini is to play a one-off show in Newport this July in memory of the late Bevlee Jones and in aid of her 13-year-old son - Ieuan .
Earlier this year, 34-year-old Mum, Bevlee Jones, passed away unexpectedly in the night. Her distraught 13-year-old son took it upon himself to give his mum the best funeral possible.
Bevelee was a huge Paolo Nutini fan, so Ieuan appealed to Paolo through Facebook, asking the singer to play at his Mum’s funeral. Paolo was away in Europe at the time but Paolo wanted to offer his support to Ieuan and his family.
Profits from the show will go into a trust fund set up for Ieuan.
When I heard of Ieuan's plea, it was with regret that I couldn't attend his mother’s funeral and do what he asked of me.
I wanted to help him in any way that I could and I feel like a concert in aid of Ieuan himself and in memory of his dear mother was the right way to do so.
