Joined by a line-up of international performers, including Alfie Boe, Imelda May and Laura Wright, Annie fronted the world’s first concert lit by Kindle Paperwhites.

With Kindlelight illuminating Abbey Road like never before, the stars took to the stage to perform a number of festive tunes.

The concert, hosted by Steve Jones, was opened by Laura Wright singing Hallelujah before the Eurythmics star wowed the room as she lead the choir in See Amid The Winter’s Snow and God Bless The Child.

“I had a fantastic time taking part in the Carols by Kindlelight concert at Abbey Road studios,” she said. 

“It’s always such a special experience to perform there as the building is so resonant with British recording history, so I’m sure that the magic of the evening will be transported beautifully to a global audience.”  

“Carols are both beautiful and powerful, and performed this way at Abbey Road will make them even more special,” said Alfie Boe, who sang Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.
