About Aled Jones

He’s sung for the Royal Family and the Pope. He’s sold over 10 million albums. He’s got an MBE and over 40 silver, gold and platinum discs. Over the past three decades, Aled Jones has had a career that can only be called extraordinary.

Catapulted to national treasure status at age 12, Jones is best known for his rendition of Walking in the Air from the animated adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman. The success of both the cartoon and Jones’ song led to him becoming one of the world’s most successful boy sopranos.

Jones' career hasn’t been limited to his astonishing vocal abilities. He’s also excelled as a broadcaster, working for BBC Radio 2 and 3 and BBC Radio Wales. He hosts the Classic FM Sunday Breakfast Show and previously hosted his own magazine show ITV Weekend.

Alongside his radio and TV work, Aled Jones has continued to record and perform. His 2016 album One Voice reached number three in the UK album charts and its Christmas companion One Voice at Christmas shot to number one in the classical charts. Both albums ended the year as the two top selling classical albums of 2016. In 2017, Jones completed his trilogy with One Voice: Believe, which also went to number one in the UK classical charts. The album featured a duet between Aled and his 12-year-old son on The Lord Is My Shepherd.

In 2018, Jones collaborated with Russell Watson on In Harmony, a collection of hymns, arias and popular songs that entered the UK album charts at number eight. After touring together in 2019, the two reconvened for a second album Back in Harmony, released in November 2019.
