Update - Jonathan Performs On BBC1 Breakfast Show Tomorrow Morning

Apologies to all of you who were up early this morning to see Jonathan perform.  It seems the BBC changed their schedule at the last minute.

I’m hoping they may be on tomorrow but there’s nothing in the schedules as yet.

A reminder that Jonathan and Charlotte will be performing on BBC1’s Breakfast Show tomorrow (Tuesday 24th) morning.

No time has been stated so for those who would like to record or watch (if possible), the programme begins at 7am and ends 9am (GMT).

Someone will possibly put a clip of it on YouTube later in the day and if so then I will post it here.  Some videos are difficult to find on YouTube unless you know the title exactly.

Jonathan on BBC1 Sunday - Advice for Overseas Fans

My last post did mention Karen’s recommendation (via Lin Gee) of and she’s put further information about it on Facebook.  In case you haven’t seen that here it is:

Some additional information though if you are unable to watch due to time difference etc. Go to the site and register. Down the left side you'll see all the channels available. Choose BBC and to the right of the box you'll see a small grey box with TV = and a star above. Click on the grey box and go to Sunday 22 where you will see an option to record. You can only record if you've registered though.


Sue Winspear it says 8.35 PM on but I suppose time is irrelevant as only the non UK residents will be viewing it on It must show the time relevant to the country you live in because we are 4 hours ahead of UK so the 8.35 for me will be the actual time it's on.

Do hope this helps those of you who live outside the UK.

Jonathan’s Next Performance and Live Streaming

I’m very aware many of Jonathan’s fans do a great deal of work promoting his wonderful talent and this blog is just a drop in the ocean.

It’s come to my notice that some of you from overseas may have difficulty seeing or hearing UK television or radio shows.  Ivy Yeo is very good at ensuring her local radio station plays Jonathan’s solos and she never gives up.  A pat on the back for Ivy. If even a few more of us emailed or telephoned our local radio stations as often as possible, we may manage to get ‘the Antoine word’ spread more widely.

Speaking of broadcasting, I picked up a conversation on Facebook, where one American fan was saying how frustrated she was at not being able to view ‘live’ UK television shows.

One fan, who lives in the middle east, suggested they try the live streaming website and says it’s the best system she has found.  Give it a try.  I can’t experiment from here because I’m in the UK.

Remember, Jonathan, along with Charlotte, is singing on BBC1 Songs of Praise this Sunday (22nd December) and the programme starts at 4.35pm (GMT).

(The photo on this post is Jonathan at Preston. When I find out the photographer I will give them the credit due here).

Jonathan Performs At A Private Christmas Party

Jonathan is out and about entertaining some very lucky people with his wonderful voice.

One tweet (of many complimentary ones) appeared this morning saying:

Big thank you for the wonderfull performance at the Christmas party!

In case you don’t know Elemis is an international skincare company.  It seems a good time was had by all if the above photos, which accompanied the tweet, are anything to go by!

Who couldn’t enjoy Jonathan’s singing.

Preston - la donna é mobile

Uploaded by Jonathan’s sister Charlotte (not to be confused with Charlotte Jaconelli).  Perhaps they should be Charlotte A and Charlotte J in future, just to avoid confusion.

Thanks Charlotte (A)!

Diary Date, Friday 13 December

This coming Friday, 13 December, Jonathan will be singing in Chichester Cathedral.

His singing teacher Sara Reynolds, also teaches at Seaford College and she will be conducting the junior choir in the afternoon and the senior choir in the evening. 

The events start at 2.30 and 7.30pm respectively.

Sara has been a major influence on Jonathan’s progress in the past three years so here is a photograph of her with him, just in case you do live in that area and are able to attend one or both concerts.

I’ve been to a few concerts in Chichester Cathedral and I’m quite sure you won’t be disappointed.  Such a wonderful acoustic environment is very suited to Jonathan’s voice.

Oh, I forgot to say, I’ve heard he’s singing ‘O Holy Night’.
