Who sings the John Lewis advert soundtrack in 2023? | The SunNovember 15, 2023

The classical-style song featured in the festive advert helps evoke the tone of the sweet and emotional tale.

The track was written and produced by Le Feste Antonacci specifically for the John Lewis advert.
Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli is one of the best-selling classical artists of all time.
His albums Romanza and Scared Arias are among the biggest selling classical albums by any solo artist.
