Aled Jones biography

Aled Jones One Voice 2

Aled Jones first shot to fame as a young treble singer, recording a whopping 16 albums before his voice broke.

  • Aled became famous for his cover version of Walking in the Air from the 1982 film The Snowman, reaching No. 5 in the UK charts.
  • Now a baritone, Aled's 24 albums span the classical repertoire, ranging from core operatic works to more popular traditional songs and hymns.
  • His first biography, Walking on Air, was published in 1986, but he's since written an autobiography with Darren Henley, as well as two books detailing his favourite hymns and Christmas Carols.
  • Aside from his classical pedigree, Aled has enjoyed a successful career as a broadcaster, presenting Songs of Praise and the ITV Breakfast programme, Daybreak, alongside Lorraine Kelly.
  • In his latest album, One Voice, present-day Aled 'duets' with his younger self. The album features recordings from Aled's teen years which were never released. Aled's mum found the 'lost' recordings in her airing cupboard!
