Singer and broadcaster Aled Jones is set to headline a charity event in Aberdeen.

The former choirboy, who shot to national fame in the 1980s with his rendition of Walking in the Air, from the hit animated film The Snowman, will appear at the Marcliffe Hotel on Friday, March 22.

Jones, who sold six million records as a child singing sensation, will perform a live set at an event for the 140th birthday celebrations of North East Sensory Services, a local charity which aims to promote independence for deaf and blind people.

Now Jones is widely renowned as an award-winning performer and broadcaster, with 31 albums under his belt along with prime time television and radio shows.

He has also released two singles with the late Sir Terry Wogan in aid of the ‘Children in Need’ appeal.

His latest album ‘One Voice’ reached number 1 in the classical chart and reached number 3 in the official UK charts.

The event, which will be hosted by TV actor Chris Chittell, from Emmerdale, is being produced by George Walker Event Management Ltd and sponsored by Aberdeen legal firm Stronachs.

The company said: ““Stronachs are delighted to be associated with this long-established charity and the services they provide to the blind and deaf
communities, and are looking forward to being part of a fantastic launch event.”

Tickets are still available for those who would like to join the guest list. Please contact Neil Skene:
