We were proud and delighted to see Sheku Kanneh-Mason perform at the BAFTA awards ceremony in London last night (12 February 2017)!

Sheku, who was the 2016 BBC Young Musician winner and is an ABRSM Junior Scholar at the Royal Academy of Music, performed a beautiful rendition of ‘Hallelujah’ during the remembrance section of the ceremony.

Alongside the thousands of guests from the global film and television industry, Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the ceremony hosted by Stephen Fry at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Bumped into @stephenfry backstage at the @BAFTA's! Not too long until I'll be on your screens performing...
