Jonathan Antoine has released a stunning video to accompany his sensational version of ‘Amazing Grace (Grazia)’, taken from his first ever Christmas album, ChristmasLand, which is out now.
Produced by multi award-winning writer and director Beau Fowler, and directed by world-renowned photographer Simon Fowler, the video features an elegant dance routine performed by esteemed dancer Naomi Weijand and choreographed by Thriller Live star Myron Birch.
Featuring the Tudor Consort, the internationally renowned vocal choir from New Zealand, Jonathan’s version of ‘Amazing Grace (Grazia)’ demonstrates his remarkable vocal prowess, but also a delicate tendency in his voice too.
Jonathan says “It has been a great privilege to work alongside wonderful people not just in the production of this video but across the entire creation of this album. Amazing Grace is a hymn of solidarity and progress. To me it is about having the strength to continue on, and if strength has left you then to let others lend you theirs. Whilst we are cooped away awaiting the day it is safe to venture forth into the world once again, we must not lose sight of one another. We must be grace for one another, and lead each other home.”
Recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios, ChristmasLand was produced by Gregg Field remotely from LA and features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, New Zealand’s Choristers of Wellington Cathedral of St Paul and the Tudor Consort. It includes a magnificent selection of universally beloved Christmas classics, promising to be a firm family favourite during the festive season for years to come.
On 18th December, Jonathan will perform tracks from the album in a very special virtual Christmas concert, filmed at the atmospheric Union Chapel in London.
Streaming via On Location Live, fans will be able to purchase a general admission ticket to the concert, or a bundle which includes a copy of ChristmasLand on CD. VIP tickets are also available, giving fans the opportunity to attend a live virtual Q&A with Jonathan directly after the show, and even the chance to meet the tenor himself in a Zoom meet and greet.
