In Harmony: Aled Jones, Russell Watson
"On November 9th 2018, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, two of the world's greatest classical voices, come together to release their debut album In Harmony, out via BMG. The pair will take to the stage together for their first joint UK and Ireland tour throughout September and October next year.
Having moved in the same circles for nearly 20 years and since becoming firm friends; Aled approached Russell to collaborate for his next big project. The album features a wealth of well-loved hymns, arias, and popular songs – ranging from stunning arrangements of "Ave Maria" – to more modern classics such as “You Raise Me Up”.
Aled and Russell's friendship began almost 20 years ago. Their instant camaraderie and professional mutual admiration made for the perfect pairing and, no doubt, to the delight of their hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe, they are happy to announce their first album together, In Harmony - A testament to the popularity and talent of the UK’s finest classical voices, featuring a cherry-picked repertoire of personal favourites."

Aled came into the public eye as the boy star whose breathtaking performance of Walking In The Air helped make the Raymond Briggs cartoon The Snowman an annual Christmas favourite. Since those early choir boy days, Aled has gone on to release over thirty albums and continues to regularly play sell-out shows.
Aled continues to combine a successful broadcasting, acting and singing career, being known as much for his TV and radio presentation work (including regular shows on Classic FM and BBC Radio Wales) as he is for his singing career. In 2004 he took a career curveball, gracing television screens in the popular BBC show, Strictly Come Dancing!
