Watch: Luke Evans’ beautiful duet with Charlotte Church
Movie star Luke Evans has teamed up with Charlotte Church for a stellar duet – Come What May – taken from his new album A Song For You.
Released on November 4, A Song For You draws its title from the Donny Hathaway song that’s one of Evans’ lifelong favourites, and with which he opens the 14-song selection.
The foundations of the album are four songs that speak to both his talent and to the respect in which he’s held by his peers: the two tracks he’s written with renowned songwriter Amy Wadge (credits incl. Ed Sheeran, Jessie Ware, James Blunt) alongside two stellar duets with Nicole Kidman (Say Something) and Charlotte Church (Come What May).
Overall, the focus is on covers carefully curated from Evans’ huge hinterland of musical passions. They’re delivered in his transcendent tenor, with orchestral backing courtesy of Prague’s Philharmonic Orchestra, with additional glorious, full-voiced support on key tracks from the world-famous, 130-year-old Treorchy Male Voice Choir.
In addition to his musical career, Evans has continued to take the acting world by storm having appeared in huge Hollywood blockbusters such as The Fast and The Furious, Beauty & The Beast, The Girl On The Train, The Hobbit, 3 Musketeers, plus ITV’s The Pembrokeshire Murders, Netflix’s Nine Perfect Strangers and Hulu’s Murder Mystery. Most recently Luke has appeared in the live-action Pinocchio film alongside Tom Hanks & Robert Downey Jnr.
