Singing bishop to hit high notes with charity CD

The Bishop of Lynn is set to release a charity CD of recordings of 1960s classics following his show-stopping live performance of Wild Thing at Festival Too in King’s Lynn last summer.

“I’ve now recorded what I need to and I’m just waiting for it to be tied together and for the launch date to be decided,” Bishop Jonathan told the EDP.
The six-song CD features the Monkees’ I’m A Believer and The Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction as well as The Troggs’ Wild Thing will raise money for Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House’s Seahorse Appeal and a campaign to restore St Nicholas Chapel to its former glory.

The Bishop has also been invited back to appear at this year’s Festival Too this summer.
