Former boy soprano famed for his 1985 hit version of Walking In The Air. After his voice broke he returned as a baritone, also becoming a regular TV and radio presenter, mostly of religious programmes.
It's not Jones who sings on the famous The Snowman cartoon. That was St. Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty, who also sang the "this is the age of the train" jingle on the Jimmy Savile-fronted ads for British Rail. Jones' cover version came about because "Toys R Us" wanted to do an altered version for their TV ads, and Auty's voice had broken by then. Songwriter Howard Blake was asked to suggest someone else to do it and Aled (whom Blake had seen on a TV documentary) got the gig.
