Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Blake Vocal Group First Interview 2007……
Blake are the tremendous vocal group who formed via Facebook.
The band Star Jules Knight, Oliver Baines, Stephen Bowman, Humphrey Berney & Dominic Tighe.
They released their debut album Blake in November 2007, which won the Album of the Year Award at the Classical BRIT Awards in 2008.
The album contains covers of popular classical songs and themes from the movies, to create a more commercial classical-pop crossover sound.
They sang for Shirley Bassey at her 70th birthday party, and performed in front of 80,000 football fans at Wembley Stadium. In the summer of 2007 their version of the “Swing Low” was chosen as the Official Anthem of the England rugby team for the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
In 2007 Belfield met them on their first radio tour…..
They sang at the opening of the 2008 Melbourne Cup in Australia and supported Katherine Jenkins on her UK tour.
During Children in Need 2007, over £1,000,000 was raised while Blake were performing “God Only Knows”.
Blake’s second album, And So It Goes, was released in September 2008. This contains more arrangements of pop music than the debut album, as well as a negro-spiritual and the Intermezzo from Cavelleria Rusticana.
Britains answer to Il Divo talk to Alex about their 4 years in show business.
They boys always have fun with Belfield!
