Gloucestershire WI Christmas Concerts .. 1 December 2010
Gloucestershire WI Christmas Concerts programme - Cheltenham, Dec 2010 Lee took time out from Wicked and his own solo concert tour to perform in two sell-out concerts for Gloucestershire's WI at Cheltenham Town Hall. He performed a mainly acoustic set including songs from his first two albums, from West End shows and couple of seasonal favourites, and was backed by the WI Choir in a spine-tingling rendition of 'Anthem' from Chess and the somewhat lighter 'Any Dream Will Do'. According to chairman of the Music and Leisure Committee, Anne Turner, he "was a hit with the WI crowd".

His full song list, performed in two sets, went like this (with grateful thanks to those lucky enough to be there):

  • Paint It Black
  • Gonna Make You A Star
  • Collide
  • The Christmas Song (aka Chestnuts!)
  • Any Dream Will Do - with WI Choir
  • Anthem - with WI Choir
  • Dancing Through Life
  • When You Say Nothing At All
  • Close Every Door
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - video download - thanks Petrus!
  • If I Can Dream

  • Also performing at the Christmas concerts were young dancers from Ribston Hall High School in Gloucester and five-piece group, The Harmonies, formed from the WI Search for a Star competition.
