Gospel Christmas will come from the heart of Cardiff this festive period, celebrating a special evening of music and Christmas cheer with Sir Tom Jones and Beverley Knight.
The blend of traditional gospel, carols and songs of spiritual intent from modern greats like Prince and Bob Dylan, performed by choirs and a house band from the British gospel scene, will add up to the freshest of winter warmers.
Sir Tom pays homage to a genre that is very close to his heart, and accompanies the audience back home to the South Wales valleys and to the church where the sounds that led Tom on his musical journey began.
Meanwhile Beverley makes a welcome return to her roots after co-hosting last year’s inaugural show, and sings uplifting and joyful songs that will get you in the mood for Christmas. They will be joined by Brit and Mobo Award-winning singer-songwriter Jessie Ware, soul singer Kwabs and the London Community Gospel Choir and the House Gospel Choir.
Tom Jones & Beverley Knight’s Gospel Christmas airs Monday 25 December 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on BBC Two.
