This will be broadcast on BBC 1 at 13:15 on Sunday December 6th.

Paul Dickens, Director of Music at All Saints Leighton Buzzard, said:
“Alexander became a member of the All Saints choir in 2014 when he was 7 years old. In 2016 he joined the choir at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, singing with us when he was back in Leighton Buzzard and joining us on our summer residentials to sing in several English cathedrals. Earlier this year, he was awarded a music scholarship at Bedford School. Alexander has been back singing with us regularly since March: firstly as part of our virtual choir during lockdown and then on Sundays when lockdown eased and we returned to sing in church. His sister, Olivia, joined us in 2016 and is a member of the National Youth Girls choir.

Alexander is an accomplished musician. Apart from his singing, he plays piano and violin and is entirely self-taught on the organ. “

Update: congratulations to Alexander, who was the winner!
