Tom Jones Joins The Performers List For The Queen’s Birthday And Reveals The Song She Likes To Jig To
Queen Elizabeth II will be turning 92 on April 21, and the party will be huuuge.
Australian singer, Kylie Minogue, Grammy nominee Craig David, rock star Sting, pop star Shawn Mendes, and many more stars will take the stage on a special concert that will be held at the Royal Albert Hall. The concert will be broadcasted by BBC, so the British public can be a part of the celebration as well.
Sir Tom Jones, whom the Queen knighted in 2006, will also be performing for the royal family. Clearly, the British monarch has an excellent taste in music, inviting both iconic and new musicians.
77-year-old Tom is ready to take any request from Her Majesty. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, he said:
The Queen’s birthday is very important. I’m going to do that on the 21st. I don’t know what I’m going to sing yet to be quite honest with you.
Tom Jones is no stranger to perfuming for the royal family, but he hasn’t been asked to sing or attend the upcoming royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Even though his golden years were the 1960s, Jones is still well-loved by his fans, including the Queen who, according to the singer, “likes to jig to Sex Bomb”.
The two have met a lot of times over the years and always seem very happy to see each other.
I think she likes to jig to Sex Bomb. She’s lovely, it’s nice to see her and she lights up when you talk to her. She really takes an interest in what you say.
Also, on stage at the birthday party, along with big stars, will be performing 16-year-old Donel Mangena. He is the contestant of The Voice UK, where Sir Tom is one of the judges. It has been revealed that Donel was invited to perform by Prince Harry.
