Powered by sheer determination and his bass-baritone voice, Alexander will push himself to the limits – both physically and vocally – as he performs at a variety of locations, across London and the South of England, during this 24-hour music marathon starting on Thursday 30th September at 12pm.

“I think it’s only just dawning on me what I’ve signed up for. There I was thinking it’d be quite fun to get out and ‘do some singing’ but the scale of the thing is only now becoming clear.”

His back-to-back concerts will include St Paul’s Cathedral and surprising workers on a construction site; a football stadium and the apron of an international airport; on a River Thames boat serenading the capital’s commuters and a concert with Forget-Me-Not Chorus, just one of the many charities we’re supporting this year.

Along the way, he will team up with some special surprise guests to help him complete this epic musical challenge.

“There are some world famous venues on that list as well as some world firsts, I don’t believe anyone’s done the Luton Airside Apron for example, but 24 gigs in 24 hours is going to need all the strength and humour I can muster. The support I am getting is incredible though. It’ll be my listeners that get me through it.”

Philip Noyce, Classic FM’s Managing Editor, said: “The past eighteen months have proved incredibly challenging for disadvantaged people across the UK, with many dependent on local community projects and charities. Alexander really does have a tough 24 hours ahead of him, which will test his endurance and strength, not to mention his vocal skills, but through his music marathon and the generosity of Classic FM’s listeners, Global’s Make Some Noise will continue to support small charities and improve people’s lives.
