Ironically, the version in the film was not performed by Aled, but by Peter Auty, a St. Paul's Cathedral choirboy. When his voice broke at the age of 16, Aled "retired" to concentrate on his school work and playing foorball! He later went to the Royal Academy of Music, followed by The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, after which he played the lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" in Blackpool for a year. In 2003, Aled relaunched his voice as an adult, when he released his first adult album, "Aled".
Although he had a previous album before this release, "From The Heart", Aled considered "Aled" as his first proper adult album. Since then, he has released 6 other albums. These are: Higher Aled: special edition The Christmas Album New Horizons You Raise Me Up: The Best of Aled Jones Reason To Believe Aled's Christmas Gift Aled's next album, "Forever", will be released on September 26th 2011 Aled has also become a regular presenter on Songs of Praise (BBC 1), Good Morning Sunday (BBC radio 2) Friday Night is Music Night (BBC radio 2) and the Choir (radio 3). He has also presented editions of 'Escape to the Country' and 'Celebrity Cash in the Attic' on BBC television.
Aled is now involved in presenting the third edition of "Classical Destinations", filming in the UK, in Europe and in Australia.
