“Robbed of the chance to perform their final performance at London’s Lyric theatre on Sunday because of the Coronavirus shutdown, musicians and singers from ‘Thriller Live’ have recorded a breathtaking version of Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’ to say farewell to the West End in style.”
16 lead singers, including Peter Andre and Kieran Alleyne, who was ‘Thriller LIve’s first young West End MJ when the show opened in 2009, recorded their vocals in isolation across the globe, from New York to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Baarn in the Netherlads.
The musicians also recorded their parts alone and the finished track and video were audio produced and mixed by Musical Director John Maher with Sound Designer Chris Whybrow. The video was edited by MiG Ayesa.
Singers (in order of appearance): Peter Andre, Joey James, MiG Ayesa, J Rome, Ina Seidou, John Moabi, Britt Quentin, Haydon Eshun,
Jesse Smith, Vivienne Ekwulugo, Rory Taylor, David Julien, Adriana Louise, Zoe Birkett, Wayne Anthony-Cole, Kieran Alleyne.
Band: John Maher (Musical Director/Arranger, Keyboards & Acoustic Guitars), Ryan Alex Farmery (Keyboards) Adam Kovacs (Percussion),
Jo Phillpotts (Bass), Allan Salmon (Electric Guitar), Accy Yeats (Drums).
