Russell Watson Tour Reviews

"...The show began with an a cappella performance of It's A Grand Night For Singing from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical State Fair. Jacqueline Barron, Louise Marshall, Ted Hands and Simon Grant came on one by one, and sang in magnificent harmony. It was a stunningly fantastic way to open the show, and boded well for the rest of the evening.

Precious Lord was another spiritual song which saw the quartet go a cappella again. This piece was a knock-out that showed just how astonishing these singers were, which raised loud and long applause. These singers were classy, accomplished and outstanding."

"A highlight was the vocal quartet's a cappella gospel offering which proved, without doubt, that the human voice is one of our most effective instruments."
