Movies and Musicals at Christmas.

On Sunday 1st December Gareth appeared at the Apollo theatre London together with John Owen Jones, Louise Dearman, Sarah Lark,the LSG Orchestra and the West End Gospel Choir for an evening of Movies and Musicals at Christmas.

Gareth’s Eye of the Sparrow, Unchained Melody and his Beauty and the Beast duet with Louise Dearman were a huge hit with the audience.

Reviewers at West End Frame agreed, even mentioning Gareth’s vocal gymnastics being highly impressive!

While Gareth Gates is best known for his music career in recent years he has become an established musical theatre performer, having played leading roles in Joseph, Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and Loserville. I am always very technical when it comes to reviewing vocal performances, and I was completely taken aback by his incredibly soulful rendition of ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’. His vocal gymnastics were highly impressive! He then treated the audience to a strong performance of ‘Unchained Melody’ (why not?).
