After tabling the motion Mr Fergusson said: “I have had the pleasure of hearing Robyn singing on several occasions over the last two years and am not one bit surprised to learn of her success in this prestigious award. It is a truly fantastic achievement, as it is clear that the depth of talent from across Scotland is incredibly strong. She clearly has a wonderful career ahead of her, and the winning of this award will give her a huge boost as she continues that career.”
