  • ONE VOICE: BELIEVE - OUT 3RD NOVEMBER.  

    PRE-ORDER SIGNED ALBUM NOW


    ALED JONES SET TO RELEASE THE FINAL ALBUM IN HIS
    BESTSELLING ONE VOICE SERIES WITH CLASSIC FM

     
    One Voice: Believe
    • Featuring the all new composition Believe, written by Aled
    • Newly recorded duets with his younger self including Ave Maria and Pie Jesu
    • Special trio recording of The Lord is My Shepherd with Aled – both as man and boy – and his son Lucas
    • Plus, unearthed bonus tracks of newly discovered tapes featuring Aled’s very first recordings at the age of 10
    Released 3rd November on the Classic FM label
    One of the UK’s most popular singers and presenters, Aled Jones MBE, returns this autumn to complete what has been an extraordinary journey. The final instalment in his One Voice album trilogy – One Voice: Believe – is released on the Classic FM label on 3rd November. The first two albums in the series topped the UK Classical Album Charts.
    A collection of spiritual classics, One Voice: Believe sees Aled duet with his younger self – man and boy – and features a few special surprises. Highlights include Richard Mill’s An Australian Blessing, Handel’s Did You Not Hear My Lady?, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Pie Jesu, Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria and the traditional hymn Morning Has Broken. Once again, the album is produced by Ian Tilley.
    As befitting to the finale in the series, the album features the life affirming Believe. Written by Aled himself, the song – his first ever composition – is a soaring number, sure to become a fan favourite.
    Alongside this, also for the very first time, the Classic FM presenter is joined by his 12-year-old son Lucas, to duet on one of Aled’s favourites hymns, The Lord is My Shepherd, arranged by Howard Goodall. An incredibly tender and heartfelt rendition, the hymn reminds of us of the strength and belief that can be inspired through song.
    Aled explains, “This is the final part of what has been an extraordinary journey. Over 30 years on from my first recording as a chorister in Bangor Cathedral, I have enjoyed reliving so many memories from my childhood over the last year and a half.”
    “To be able to sing with my younger boy voice has been such an emotional experience,” he continues. “On a personal level, this album will forever be extra special to me, as I share one song with my son Lucas. He’s never wanted to sing and has never had a single lesson, but fancied having a go before his voice breaks. Who am I to stop him – and the resulting duet melts my heart! It’s something for him to look back on in the future”.
    An extra special treat for fans comes from a call made earlier this year with one of Aled’s choir friends from Bangor. In his school days, a then 10-year-old Aled had been spotted by choir master Andrew Goodwin who, with the help of tenor Brian Saunderson, decided to record Aled singing. This was the very first time that Aled recorded a track.
    Nearly four decades on, a now 78-year old Brian stumbled across the original reel-to-reel tapes whilst clearing his house. He kept hold of them, hoping to return them to Aled one day. He thought his opportunity came when Aled was touring One Voice a few months later in Bangor Cathedral. While he didn’t get to meet him on the night, Brian tracked Aled down via his contacts in Bangor and presented him with a new, digitised version of his very first recording, before he had secured his first record deal.
    These tracks – How Beautiful Are the Feet, Pie Jesu (Faure) and Y Lili Ddwr (the Welsh version of The Lotus Flower by Schumann) – can now be heard for the very first time as bonus tracks on the album.
    Millions know Aled for his radio and TV presenting work, which includes his Sunday breakfast show on Classic FM. He has had an extraordinary career over the past three decades, having sung for the Pope, Her Majesty The Queen and numerous members of the Royal Family. Aled has released more than 30 albums, generating eight million albums sales and counting. He has performed across the world – from the Hollywood Bowl to The Vatican and from Buckingham Palace to the Sydney Opera House. Never staying in his comfort zone, he has performed in English, Welsh and Japanese.
    One Voice: Believe will be released on 3rd November on the Classic FM label

  • ALED JONES LAUNCHES SEARCH FOR LOCAL CHOIRS TO JOIN HIM ON HIS UK MAY 2017 TOUR


    Singer, TV presenter and radio broadcaster Aled Jones MBE is set to tour the UK this Spring.
    A nationwide search is being launched to find local choirs from all ages, to join him at each venue.
    Famed as the boy star that stole the hearts of the nation with his legendary performance of ‘Walking In The Air’, Aled is hoping to discover new talent from across the UK and will be inviting his favourite choirs to join him on stage at each performance for a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform with him.
    2016 was an incredible year for Aled as he released hit album ‘One Voice’. Week on week it ascended the pop chart to a staggering no.3 position. It held the no.1 spot on the classical chart for 14 weeks and has now sold over 72,000 copies, gaining silver BPI status. In fact Aled sold more than former One Direction Star Zayn Malik during their first week of sales. Combined with the sales from his Christmas album ‘One Voice at Christmas’, Aled was the best selling Classical artist of 2016.
    Aled said: ‘’I'm really excited about hitting the road again and singing in these fabulous venues. I’m a firm believer that we have the greatest choral tradition here in the U.K. And I’m really excited to be sharing the stage and singing with some of our greatest choirs. I hope as many groups as possible send in their videos!’’
    Aled has his own Sunday morning radio show on Classic FM 7-10am and is due to return to his ITV1 show 'Weekend' every Saturday and Sunday morning as well as being a regular on BBC One on Songs of Praise and a new series of 'Going Back, Giving Back'.

    The tour is set to visit the following venues across the UK:
    Glasgow Paisley Abbey - Saturday 6th May
    Wrexham William Aston Hall - Monday 8th May
    Lichfield Cathedral - Tuesday 9th May
    York Grand Opera House - Thursday 11th May
    London Union Chapel - Thursday 18th May

    How to enter:
    Choirs that wish to enter are to send a short video of their choir to aledchoir@carouselpr.com along with a brief description outlining why they should be the chosen choir. Choirs must state where they are based and highlight the venue in which they are applying for. It’s requested that videos are either sent in as a downloadable link or as link to YouTube etc. Please do not send entries as an attachment and ensure full contact details are provided (name, email, phone number and any further supporting links). Choirs wishing to apply must be based within a 20 mile radius to the venue that they are applying for. Maximum application word count is capped at 400 words. Entries must be sent by an adult aged 18 or over.
    One choir for each venue will be selected. The judges decision is final. The prize is the opportunity to support Aled Jones at the given venue. Travel expenses for the winning choir are not on offer. Tickets beyond choir personnel are not available. If selected choirs include minors then at least x3 responsible adults (teachers, parents or guardians) must accompany the choir on the night of the performance.
    Entrance is open now and will close Monday 27th March at 12 noon.
    The winner for each venue will be announced Friday 31th March 2017.
