Colton and Zach Swon, known as “The Swon Brothers” on NBC’s hit series “The Voice,” recognize that their success didn’t happen without help.

“No matter how great you are, without friends it doesn’t work,” said Zach Swon, 28, in a recent interview. The Swon Brothers should know about teamwork.

Their father, Kelly Swon, is the secretary-treasurer of Teamsters Local 516 in Muscogee, Okla. Teamsters there are already supporting the Swon Brothers in the competition, but they need your support if they’re going to win.

“The Voice” is a singing competition/reality show that airs on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. (EST) on NBC. It’s one of the most-watched shows on television, but the Swon Brothers need your help in spreading the word that they’re not only talented singers—they’re also the children of a Teamster principal officer who drove a UPS truck in Oklahoma for 25 years.

“We never know when they’re going to be on. They keep it quiet,” said Kelly Swon, explaining that people often ask him the next time his boys will appear on the show.

In their last appearance, they advanced to the knockout rounds, which are set to air on April 29 and 30. In advancing, they became the first duo in the show’s four-season history to make it past the battle rounds.
