5. Aled Jones (b.1970)
The Classic FM presenter shot to fame as a boy treble, known for his cover version of ‘Walking in the Air’, written for ‘The Snowman’, which reached No. 5 in the pop charts in 1985. Jones joined the choir of Bangor Cathedral at nine and was lead soloist within two years. His recording career was temporarily halted when his voice broke. By that time he had sold more than six million albums, and sung for the Pope, HM The Queen, and the Prince and Princess of Wales in a private recital.
