John Owen-Jones who has starred in both Les Misérables and Phantom of the Opera will release his fifth studio album Spotlight on 15 February.
Spotlight will feature John’s unique take on tracks from musicals and more, with music performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
The first single is The Prayer – A duet with Musical Theatre actress Lucie Jones. John has performed with Lucie many times in concert, but this track marks the first time they will have collaborated in the studio.
John told Encore Radio
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Lucie’s work and her versatile voice shines on this track. I’m really excited for people to hear how good we sound together!’
At just 26, John became the youngest actor ever to play the role of Jean Valjean in the West End and was the first British actor to play the role both in the West End and on Broadway. John will be returning to the Les Misérables to play the role of Jean Valjean at select performances.
The concert at the Gielgud will take place while the Queen’s Theatre next door, the long-time home of the original full version of Les Misérables, is being refurbished. The production will return to the Queen’s in December 2019.
