bbc.co.uk, 2017:

Gospel Christmas returns from the heart of Cardiff to celebrate a special evening of music and spiritual cheer with Sir Tom Jones and Beverley Knight. The blend of traditional gospel, carols and songs of spiritual intent from modern greats like Prince and Bob Dylan are performed by choirs and a house band from the British gospel scene, and will add up to the freshest of winter warmers.

Recording in Cardiff Bay at the newly refurbished Exchange Hotel (also known as the Coal Exchange) on Tuesday 28 November, they will be joined by BRIT and MOBO award winning singer-songwriter Jessie Ware, soul singer Kwabena Sarkodee Adjepong (better known by his stage name, Kwabs), and the London Community Gospel Choir and the House Gospel Choir. Londoner Jessie Ware has just released her third Top Ten album, Glasshouse, while Kwabs achieved international success with his 2015 debut album Love & War and the single Walk.

As he prepares to head home to Wales, Sir Tom Jones said: “I’m looking forward to celebrating this wonderful season with my co-host Beverly Knight and sharing the evening with Jessie Ware, Kwabs and the uplifting and joyous choirs. It will be an evening of beautiful singing and playing in the heart of Cardiff at the historic venue, and I hope to share this joy with you all at home on Christmas Day.”

Soul singer and musical theatre star, Beverley Knight, says: “I’m chuffed to be asked to return to be a part of Gospel Christmas for a second time - this time coming to you from the great city of Cardiff! Celebrating Christmas in song once again with the wonderful choirs will be a joy - and working with the amazing Sir Tom Jones in his home country of Wales will be a huge honour. I can’t wait!”

It’s a show that sees Sir Tom pay homage to a genre that is very close to his heart whilst Beverley makes a welcome return to her roots after her success at co-hosting last year’s inaugural show. Sir Tom will accompany the audience back home to the South Wales valleys and to the church where the sounds that led Tom on his musical journey began.

Combining carols and hymns including Away in a Manger and Silent Night; traditional gospel songs such as Jesus is Here to Stay and Children Go Where I Send Thee; alongside great contemporary spiritual songs from the likes of Bob Dylan, Prince and Steve Winwood, Gospel Christmas is a celebration of the very meaning of this most special of days with songs that celebrate hope, belief and a new beginning.

  2. Rumor has it Tom gots a Big Un

    By U L E on Dec 25, 2021

  3. This dude has got one on the very big side by all accounts. A double sized hoagie according to some reports .

    By ELU on Dec 25, 2021

  4. Who starts these rumors ? What’s a hoagie ?

    By Jocko P on Dec 25, 2021

  5. Nice rendition of Dylan’s “I Believe in You.” I’m not a Christian, but I love Dylan’s gospel music.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  6. I’m a Buddhist, not a Christian, but I’m not offended when someone wishes me merry Christmas. It’s the thought that counts, and I appreciate the sentiment.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  7. The Four Gospels give such contradictory accounts of the birth of Jesus, and there are some facets of the story that don’t match with historical re4cords (there was no such census such as the one that supposedly had Joseph and Mary traveling when she was pregnant). Only a pre-literate society could believe you find someone by meeting under a star. Hero/God miraculous births are a common staple found in many earlier myths.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  8. This year brings us the strange compulsion many people feel to share what guns they’ve bought themselves and their children for Christmas. I am not opposed to the second amendment, but I don’t think bragging about weapons is appropriate for Christmas, especially when guns are bought and displayed by children. Didn’t the tragedy with the Crumbleys teach people anything?

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  9. Amazing how many evangelicals are excoriating Biden for “stealing and ruining Christmas” because of supply chain issues he had nothing to do with. I’d think evangelicals would be glad to see people get away from materialism and towards the “reason for the season.” After all, even the Whos were happy Christmas morning when the Grinch had stolen everything.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  10. It’s a shame how many people will be alone this Christmas, and how the apparent joy being displayed everywhere they go reminds them of the emptiness and tragedies of their own lives. I’m grateful for all that I have.

    By Mark on Dec 25, 2021

  11. Buddhist ? Bull fuckin shit . Everybody knows Mark is a motherfuckin, Dic suckin, coon and hi Yeller lovin Jew bastard name hijacker . I ain’t been postin as much lately, cause what’s the point . The dic sucker and his buddies has taken over this fuckin site wit all their fag dic talk and sign offs usin others names

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  12. They all suck dics and take em up the round brown . Big fat coon elephant dics . I fuckin garentee it

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  13. They should all get what Joe Pesci got in Casino

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  14. Or what dirty laundrie got in the Florida swamp . The gators doin the honors

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  15. Hey Anti , triple h , ain’t watchin much sports anymore cause of all the coons and hi Yeller players , and their monkey shit behavior on the field and basketball court, watch the highlights though sometimes and sure as shit nothin ever changes . Same ole monkey shit . Stupid celebrations, muggin for the cameras etc . Coon monkeys everywhere. Drew Pearson, Lynn Swann , Bullet Bob Hayes didn’t act that way and they was black

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  16. Tom Brady criticizes the nfl for allowing hits to receivers knees After Cris Godwin took a hit to the knee that tore his ACL . Shit you can’t play defense anymore anyway . Just let em play touch football

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  17. That’s why you got all these ridiculous numbers bein put up by QBs and receivers . You can’t even breath on a QB without a flag bein thrown and can’t even touch the receiver downfield . Like Jack Lambert used to say let these sissy’s wear skirts

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  18. Anti , triple h , saw where Cris Godwins wife made comments after the knee hit . Sure as shit it figures another coon athlete married to a hot white bitch . Most of these ugly ass coons go white for some reason . They won’t stay wit their own . The white bitches is even worse for fuckin them monkeys . I garentee you that two thirds of them coons in the nfl and nba is married to white bitches and has kinky haired hi Yeller kids . Disgraceful

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  19. No wonder the coon women always look pissed off . They is losin all their men to them white whores . Back in the old days you didn’t have that shit . The men in the white sheets would take these coon monkeys , give em a hot tar and feather bath before stringing them up to a hi tree limb

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  20. The white whores would get a horse whippin, then run out of town on a rail . We need them times again . Our white race won’t exist much longer at this rate . My daddy and mama would turn over in their graves if they saw this shit today . Coons had their own parts of the city , they only came to white neighborhoods to be maids and cooks . We had a black maid named Essie . She knew her place

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  21. Anti , triple h , we need Jim Crow to come back before it’s too late .

    By Derrick on Dec 25, 2021

  22. We got a solution to the nigger man with white woman problem.

    By JW Milam Roy Bryant on Dec 25, 2021

  23. It makes you want to throw up Derrick. I see it everyday when I leave the house . White girls with these baboons. Little mixed kids running alongside. It’s awful . Don’t know what the answer is .

    By Nelson on Dec 25, 2021

  24. We got the answer.

    By JW Milam Roy Bryant on Dec 25, 2021

  25. Another black athlete married to a white woman is Darius Leonard who plays for the colts .

    By Nelson on Dec 25, 2021

  26. Says he knew her through lower school . Married now with mixed kids . I blame her parents. They should have yanked her out of that school .

    By Nelson on Dec 25, 2021

  27. That’s why many whites are putting their kids in private schools , to prevent this shit from happening. It’s like swimming upstream during a tidal wave . Those niggers see a white girl and it’s open season .

    By Nelson on Dec 25, 2021

  28. Merry Christmas my friend Derrick. Great to see you buddy. I stopped posting also. Same reasons. Dont watch sports either. I was watchin the espn 30 for 30 last nite bout the 4 super losses by the bills. How you lose 4 straight. Even Thurman Thomas was a gentleman. White women go to the Caribbean so they can get fucked by black dik. They must really enjoy being fucked by a beer can coc. I guess whitey isnt good enough. Merry Xmas Nelson

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  29. If you google nigger athletes girlfriends and wives , 75 percent of them will be white and hot .

    By Nelson on Dec 25, 2021

  30. Been listening to alot of Emerson Lake and Palmer. I cant believe these guys are not in the RR HOF. Tarkus, Trilogy, Brain Salad Surgery, Picture at an Exhibibition. It was sad Keith Emersonblew his brains out because he felt the arthritis in his hands prevented him from putting on a great show

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  31. Hey Derrick, Nelson, Anti, hope you all feel better for your ranting today. Surprised triple hasn’t been on here giving his two cents worth as well.

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  32. Milam & Bryant… You are all talk and no action .

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  33. Who is Emerson Lake and Palmer?

    By Jocko P on Dec 25, 2021

  34. A firm of lawyers/accountants .

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  35. Hey Jerko, Is this going to turn into 20 Questions???

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  36. *sob* You’re right Mark, I’m *sob* alone again this Christmas *sob* and I haven’t been out for three weeks because everything I see reminds me of the emptiness and tragedies of my miserable, wretched life.

    Someone please kill me *sob*

    By Corey M on Dec 25, 2021

  37. Shit my pants at daybreak, laid in it for a few hours, then made some tasty shit chili for breakfast! Mixed in some chopped hot sausage and peanuts, sweetened it with some canned corn, and it’s A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE MEAL! mmmm mmmm GOOD!

    By HHH on Dec 25, 2021

  38. Merry Christmas everyone.
    My wish for this coming year is that everyone calms down here and this place returns to some civility. many of the old great posters are long gone and we all know its because a whole new generation of degenerates have turned this place into a toilet bowl of ridiculous rants that have little or nothing to do with music. Can we please end all the nonsense and just enjoy a once great site?

    By dropkicksarge on Dec 25, 2021

  39. She won’t fuck me, no chicks will. *sob*

    He fucked my ass once when he was blind drunk after a show. I couldn’t shit right for a week that schlong was so fat! Ecstasy!

    By U L E on Dec 25, 2021

  40. My mom’s a ho ho ho!

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  41. I concur with dropkicksarge.

    By The AntiChrist on Dec 25, 2021

  42. Ive become a crack addict like HHH and Derrieres’ mothers. The sight of that crack cookie is all I live for

    By DD on Dec 25, 2021

  43. May EVERYONE here find peace and joy in their hearts. May the racists lose their fear of everyone who doesn’t look like them.

    By Mark on Dec 26, 2021

  44. Yes, Buddhist. Read The Dhammapada, Shantedeva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, and the writings of the Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hahn and you’ll see where my philosophy of life comes from.

    By Mark on Dec 26, 2021

  45. Hey dropkick, anti, I just stepped outside to watch a formation of pigs flying by .

    By DD on Dec 26, 2021

  46. Rumor has it Tom Jones has a super big un

    By U L E on Dec 26, 2021

  47. Only first one me . Rest all fakes

    By U L E on Dec 26, 2021

  48. The main complaint with the niggers is they won’t leave white women alone . And the white sluts are worse than the niggers . I don’t care if a nigger has a good job and has equal rights , I just don’t want them messing with my daughters , if I had any . Thank god I don’t

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  49. A friend has a daughter who got knocked up by a nigger , had a mixed kid . They kicked her out of the house and family. She’s living with a bunch of niggers in nigger town with the niggers family . She basically became a white nigger . The family was hurt real bad by what she did . She went to public school , so she was exposed to niggers . They couldn’t afford private school

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  50. You don’t see other races mix like that . Chinese and indians stay pretty much with their own . It’s mainly nigger males going after white girls and women the old school niggers don’t like that anymore than whites .

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  51. That nigger dik must be like heroin to those white sluts

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  52. hhh said something earlier about the media and tv commercials and shows encouraging that shit by showing black white couples. . They want this shit to happen.

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  53. My sister got knocked up by a nigger , had a mixed kid . We kicked her out of the house and family. She’s living with a bunch of niggers in nigger town with the niggers family . She basically became a white nigger . Our family was hurt real bad by what she did . She went to public school , so she was exposed to niggers . We couldn’t afford private school. We couldn’t even afford to buy me any books. That’s why I’m so fucking stupid.

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  54. That nigger dik is like heroin to my slutty sister.

    By HHH on Dec 26, 2021

  55. hhh , I know that wasn’t you . It’s another asshole piece of shit , nigger lover .

    By Nelson on Dec 26, 2021

  56. To me it’s all about the size . Black guys are usually much bigger than whites , especially in the girth department. We ladies love being stretched to the max . Blacks also have more rythem. They know how to work it. Most aren’t that smart, but I don’t date them for the conversation. I just want to be filled up completely and pounded .

    By Anne on Dec 26, 2021

  57. Tom Jones has a big dic k but Uncle Milte was bigger . Tom admitted to losing a whip it out contest to Uncle Milte in Vegas . He said so on the Howard Stern show .

    By Scaromouch on Dec 26, 2021

  58. Scaramouch, your knowledge about other men’s penises is impressive. Do you have any information about the tightness/cleanliness of their anus’ or their skill at sucking sausage?

    By T J on Dec 26, 2021

  59. Hey @Mark

    I’m pretty sure you won’t be bragging about your weapon this Christmas - small caliber with a tiny barrel. Why don’t you give us all a Christmas present by sticking it up your ass and pulling the trigger

    And as for @dropkicksarge - the self important pricks have left this site, there’s just you and swaphole left. You should go to limey land so the two of you can spend time piping each other off while you talk about roios - hopeithen you won’t have time to post on here.

    Happy holidays everyone!

    By Lawn Reindeer on Dec 26, 2021

  60. Sounds great, Dropkick. You can tell me whether you prefer the audience or soundboard of Nancy Griffiths’ gig at the Boys Club Turkish Baths in 83 while you fill my mouth with your jizz. Then we can do some seasonal snowballing.

    By Swappers on Dec 27, 2021

  61. Hey Lawn Reindeer, I must say that your knowledge about other men’s penises is impressive. Do you have any information about the tightness/cleanliness of their anus’ or of their skill at sucking testicles?

    By T J on Dec 27, 2021

  62. I suck reindeer diks.

    By Lawn Reindeer on Dec 28, 2021

  63. I eat reindeer shit too.

    Dog shit too.

    Any shit I can find.

    By Lawn Reindeer on Dec 28, 2021

  64. All of the other reindeer

    gang banged me.

    By Lawn Reindeer on Dec 28, 2021

  65. @Lawn Reindeer, sounds like you deserve all you get .
