Aled Jones took to the skies to perform a rendition of 'Walking In The Air' on Thursday (13.10.16).

The 45-year-old singer wowed crowds on board the FLYBE Flight BE1324 from London City to Cardiff Airport with their very own early Christmas concert as he performed a version of his hit track in celebration of his new album.

He said: "I have extremely fond memories of recording and performing 'Walking in the Air', and now Christmas wouldn't be the same without it!

"To sing it whilst looking out at the clouds and huge expanse of sky was a very special moment indeed. All we needed was the Snowman!"

The album, titled 'One Voice at Christmas', includes a number of popular festive songs including 'O Holy Night', 'O Come, O Come, Emmanuel' and 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'. 'Walking in the Air' leads the album with a special version rearranged by Howard Blake, where Aled duets with his younger self.

He added: "This year has been a great one for me. The reaction to One Voice earlier this year was really humbling so to do it again for Christmas - well, Christmas has come early for me.

"I've performed in some pretty special places around the world, but never 18,000ft up in a plane! I'm sure my 12-year-old self would think that's very cool. Thankfully we had a pretty smooth flight to Cardiff, so hopefully hit all the right notes!"

'One Voice at Christmas' will be released on Friday November 25 on the Classic FM label.
