Aled Jones took to the skies to per­form a ren­di­tion of ‘Walk­ing In The Air’ on Thurs­day

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The 45-year-old singer wowed crowds on board the FLYBE Flight BE1324 from Lon­don City to Cardiff Air­port with their very own early Christ­mas con­cert as he per­formed a ver­sion of his hit track in cel­e­bra­tion of his new al­bum. He said: “I have ex­tremely fond me­mories of record­ing and per­form­ing ‘Walk­ing in the Air’, and now Christ­mas wouldn’t be the same with­out it! “To sing it whilst look­ing out at the clouds and huge ex­panse of sky was a very spe­cial mo­ment in­deed. All we needed was the Snow­man!” The al­bum, ti­tled ‘One Voice at Christ­mas’, in­cludes a num­ber of pop­u­lar fes­tive songs in­clud­ing ‘O Holy Night’, ‘O Come, O Come, Em­manuel’ and ‘Have Your­self a Merry Lit­tle Christ­mas’. ‘Walk­ing in the Air’ leads the al­bum with a spe­cial ver­sion re­ar­ranged by Howard Blake, where Aled duets with his younger self. He added: “This year has been a great one for me. The re­ac­tion to One Voice ear­lier this year was re­ally hum­bling so to do it again for Christ­mas - well, Christ­mas has come early for me. “I’ve per­formed in some pretty spe­cial places around the world, but never 18,000ft up in a plane! I’m sure my 12-year-old self would think that’s very cool. Thank­fully we had a pretty smooth flight to Cardiff, so hope­fully hit all the right notes!” ‘One Voice at Christ­mas’ will be re­leased on Fri­day Novem­ber 25 on the Clas­sic
