    Ramin Karimloo

    Ramin made his name in musical theatre and has starred as the Phantom in Phantom of The Opera and, most recently, as Valjean in Les Miserables. In his interview he talks about how music inspired him to find out more about Christianity and about the significance of ‘Constant Angel’, the song he is performing.

    Paul Jones

    Paul began his singing career as a chorister at Portsmouth Cathedral but left choral music to front 60s rock-band Manfred Mann. Once a famous atheist, he talks about finding faith as an adult. He performs an acapella version of the Blues song’ Restin’ on Jesus’.
