Chelmsford Christmas Lights Switch-on – 27 November 2016

As with the Southend event of the previous weekend, and also hosted by Heart FM’s Martin & Su, the annual Christmas lights switch-on in Chelmsford offered a day of music and entertainment throughout the town’s centre. Starring transgender ‘The Voice’ semi-finalist Jordan Gray plus local talents West End Mamas, The Big Sing, Winston and the Lads and the Hackney Colliery Band, the large crowd enjoyed and joined in with some powerful music. Chelmsford’s Mayor and ‘Santa’, plus local promoters, switched on the lights at 5pm, accompanied by fireworks.

Jordan Gray was the first transgender contestant on ‘The Voice’ and has released her new single ‘Platinum’ this week.

Southend Christmas Lights Switch-on Event – 19 November 2016

Hosted by Heart FM’s Martin & Su, the annual Christmas lights switch-on event in Southend offered a day of music and entertainment throughout the town’s High Street. Starring ‘X-Factor’ and ‘The Voice’ contestant Lydia Lucy – latterly promoted by Will.I.am and the newest member of Black Eyed Peas –  as well as performances from local talents The Avenue, Adam Duffill and Joe Gibson, the large crowd enjoyed and joined in with some powerful singing. Lydia Lucy and Martin & Su were joined by ‘Ryan the Lion’ and Southend’s Mayor, Councillor Judith McMahon, to switch on the lights at 6pm, prompting an instant snow storm. Lydia Lucy ended the event with a sing-along of Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas’.
