Hi. I'm Sophie Evans and this is Tonypandy where I grew up.

0:00:050:00:09

I've had an amazing few years since being on the Over The Rainbow show,

0:00:090:00:13

and I left Tonypandy for London,

0:00:130:00:15

playing Dorothy eight shows a week here at the London Palladium.

0:00:150:00:20

But, being a Welsh girl through and through,

0:00:200:00:22

when the BBC asked would I do a Christmas show

0:00:220:00:25

including special guests such as Michael Ball and Only Boys Aloud,

0:00:250:00:29

I said, "Yes, of course, but I want it to be really Welsh."

0:00:290:00:33

'Ladies and gentlemen, from the Wales Millennium Centre,

0:00:350:00:40

'this is The Really Welsh Christmas Show.'

Welcome to the Really Welsh Christmas Show with me,

0:03:030:03:06

Sophie Evans, and the wonderful BBC National Orchestra of Wales,

0:03:060:03:10

conducted by Mr Grant Llewellyn.

0:03:100:03:13

APPLAUSE

0:03:130:03:15

I sang it on the TV show Over The Rainbow,

0:03:190:03:21

and it was a song that I sang in the final.

0:03:210:03:24

It's from the Disney film Mulan, this is Reflection.

0:03:240:03:27

# Look at me

0:03:340:03:36

# You may think you see who I really am

0:03:360:03:41

# But you'll never know me

0:03:410:03:44

# Every day, it's as if I play a part

0:03:440:03:49

# Now I see, if I wear a mask I can fool the world

0:03:500:03:58

# But I cannot fool my heart

0:03:580:04:02

# Who is that girl I see

0:04:060:04:10

# Staring straight back at me?

0:04:100:04:15

# Why is my reflection

0:04:150:04:19

# Someone I don't know?

0:04:190:04:24

# Must I pretend that I'm

0:04:240:04:29

# Someone else for all time?

0:04:290:04:34

# When will my reflection show

0:04:340:04:39

# Who I am inside?

0:04:390:04:43

# There's a heart that must be free to fly

0:04:430:04:50

# That burns with a need to know

0:04:510:04:56

# The reason why

0:04:560:05:01

# Why must we all conceal

0:05:010:05:05

# What we think, how we feel?

0:05:050:05:10

# When will my reflection show

0:05:100:05:16

# Who I am inside?

0:05:160:05:23

# When will my reflection show

0:05:230:05:31

# Who I am inside? #

0:05:310:05:39

APPLAUSE

0:05:430:05:44

I really love Christmas.

0:05:550:05:57

One of the most important things to me at this time of year is

0:05:570:05:59

being at home with my family, doing traditional family things.

0:05:590:06:03

Do you remember making that, Soph?

0:06:040:06:06

No, but it's why I stuck to singing, not making things.

0:06:060:06:10

You were only about four.

0:06:100:06:11

It looks more like a chimney than Father Christmas.

0:06:110:06:14

-What do you think? I think we've just about finished.

-Yep.

0:06:140:06:17

Well, Mum, I know you've always wanted to do this,

0:06:170:06:20

would you like to introduce the next song for me.

0:06:200:06:22

Yes, I will.

0:06:220:06:23

Next on the Really Welsh Christmas Show,

0:06:230:06:26

singing a gorgeous Christmas classic, it's Michael Ball.

0:06:260:06:29

# Christmas future is far away

0:06:310:06:36

# Christmas past is past

0:06:360:06:39

0:06:410:06:46

# Bringing joy that will last

0:06:460:06:52

0:06:540:06:59

0:07:290:07:31

# Our troubles will be miles away

0:07:310:07:38

# Here we are as in olden days

0:07:400:07:45

# Happy golden days of yore

0:07:450:07:50

# Faithful friends who are dear to us

0:07:500:07:55

# Gather near to us once more

0:07:550:08:01

# Through the years

0:08:030:08:05

# We all will be together

0:08:050:08:08

# If the fates allow

0:08:080:08:12

# But till then we'll try to muddle through somehow

0:08:130:08:21

# And have yourself a merry little Christmas

0:08:240:08:32

# For here we are as in olden days

0:08:510:08:55

# Happy golden days of yore

0:08:550:09:01

# Faithful friends who are dear to us

0:09:010:09:05

# Gather near to us once more

0:09:050:09:09

# Once more

0:09:090:09:14

# Through the years

0:09:140:09:16

# We all will be together

0:09:160:09:18

# If the fates allow

0:09:180:09:24

# Hang a shining star above the highest bough and

0:09:240:09:32

# Have yourself a merry little Christmas

0:09:340:09:42

# Now. #

0:09:460:09:53

Merry Christmas.

0:09:530:09:55

Nadolig Llawen.

0:09:550:09:57

APPLAUSE

0:09:590:10:01

Michael Ball, everyone.

0:10:050:10:07

-You look fabulous.

-Thank you very much.

-Very nice.

0:10:100:10:13

Michael, that was amazing. Really getting us in the Christmas mood.

0:10:130:10:16

Oh, thank you.

0:10:160:10:17

I've been doing my research on you, you weren't born in Wales but...

0:10:170:10:21

No, I'm Welsh on my mother's side and sadly English on my father's.

0:10:210:10:26

-Aw!

-But I've always thought of myself...

0:10:260:10:29

-If it comes to rugby, if it comes to war, I'm a Welshman.

-Yes! Come on!

0:10:290:10:35

And, of course, any talent I have at singing is entirely down to

0:10:350:10:39

the Welsh side of the family.

0:10:390:10:40

Exactly, yes. We can all sing.

0:10:400:10:42

I've been looking forward to this part of the show where

0:10:420:10:44

-I get to sing with you.

-That's very kind.

0:10:440:10:47

-I've heard you've done this song before.

-Yes.

0:10:470:10:49

It's one of my favourite songs.

0:10:490:10:51

The challenge for me was singing in Italian.

0:10:510:10:54

It's called The Prayer because it simply is that.

0:10:540:10:56

I thought it would be so appropriate to sing it at this time of year.

0:10:560:11:00

I can't think of anybody I'd rather sing it with at this very moment.

0:11:000:11:03

-Same. Let's do it.

-All right, lovely.

0:11:030:11:05

APPLAUSE

0:11:050:11:07

# I pray you'll be our eyes

0:11:260:11:33

# And watch us where we go

0:11:330:11:39

# And help us to be wise

0:11:390:11:45

# In times when we don't know

0:11:450:11:52

# Let this be our prayer

0:12:510:12:53

0:12:560:13:00

0:15:200:15:23

This is my old primary school in Cwmclydach, Tonypandy.

0:15:330:15:37

I'm just going to pop in, say hello,

0:15:370:15:39

and ask the children here what they think about Christmas.

0:15:390:15:42

THE CHILDREN SING

0:15:430:15:45

This is where I used to do all my concerts.

0:15:490:15:52

Brings back a lot of memories.

0:15:520:15:55

I think I was one of the angels.

0:15:570:15:59

What does Father Christmas do on Christmas Day?

0:16:040:16:07

-Bring presents.

-Uh-huh.

0:16:070:16:09

-If you're naughty, he doesn't give presents.

-Have you been naughty?

0:16:090:16:14

You're on the good list?

0:16:140:16:16

-Which list do think you are on this year?

-BOTH: Good.

-You are.

-You are.

-You are.

0:16:250:16:27

I hope you're not on the naughty list.

What happens to kids on the naughty list?

0:16:290:16:32

-The get coal.

-And they have to eat it.

0:16:320:16:34

They have to eat the coal?

0:16:340:16:36

-Are you sure you're not on the naughty list?

-Nope.

0:16:360:16:40

My daddy is on the naughty list cos he always swears.

0:16:400:16:45

SHE GIGGLES

0:16:450:16:47

I haven't even seen a coal before.

0:16:470:16:49

-You haven't even seen coal?

-I have! In a fire.

0:16:490:16:52

THEY LAUGH

0:16:520:16:54

Some of us are good.

0:16:540:16:56

But robbers, they don't get any presents.

0:16:560:16:59

No.

0:16:590:17:01

I got a certificate, so I am good.

0:17:010:17:04

CHILDREN CHATTER

0:17:100:17:13

Shhh!

0:17:130:17:15

Miss is on the telly.

0:17:150:17:17

This is Mrs Duncan, who was one of my teachers

0:17:170:17:20

here at Cwmclydach Junior School.

0:17:200:17:22

And I just want to say how

0:17:220:17:23

fond my memories are of my Christmas concerts here.

0:17:230:17:27

I'm very proud of you, Sophie.

0:17:270:17:29

And I'll always remember the very first song you sang.

0:17:290:17:32

It was On A Starry Night.

0:17:320:17:34

I knew from that early age,

0:17:340:17:36

you were going to be a star and a West End performer.

0:17:360:17:40

Thank you. Would you mind introducing my next song for me?

0:17:400:17:43

I certainly will, Sophie.

0:17:430:17:45

The next song Sophie is going to sing for us tonight

0:17:450:17:48

is a song sung by Bob Dylan and Adele. Make You Feel My Love.

0:17:480:17:54

# When the rain is blowing in your face

0:17:570:18:03

# And the whole world is on your case

0:18:030:18:08

# I could offer you a warm embrace

0:18:090:18:15

# To make you feel my love

0:18:150:18:19

# When the evening shadows and the stars appear

0:18:220:18:29

# And there is no-one there to dry your tears

0:18:290:18:35

# I will hold you for a million years

0:18:360:18:42

# To make you feel my love

0:18:420:18:46

# I know you haven't made your mind up yet

0:18:490:18:56

# But I would never do you wrong

0:18:560:18:59

# I've known it from the moment that we met

0:19:020:19:09

# There's no doubt in my mind where you belong

0:19:090:19:14

# I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue

0:19:160:19:23

# I'd go crawling down the avenue

0:19:230:19:29

# No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do

0:19:300:19:37

# To make you feel my love

0:19:370:19:42

# Ooooh

0:19:480:19:56

# To make you feel my love

0:20:060:20:10

# The storms are raging on the rolling seas

0:20:130:20:19

# And on that highway of regret

0:20:190:20:24

# Though winds of change are blowing wild and free

0:20:270:20:33

# You ain't seen nothing like me yet

0:20:330:20:38

# I could make you happy

0:20:410:20:43

# Make your dreams come true

0:20:430:20:47

# No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do

0:20:470:20:52

# I'd go to the ends of the Earth for you

0:20:540:21:00

# To make you feel my love

0:21:010:21:06

# To make you feel my love. #

0:21:090:21:17

APPLAUSE

0:21:220:21:24

Well, I've had a wonderful year

0:21:390:21:40

and here are two boys who've also had a wonderful year.

0:21:400:21:43

Do you want to introduce yourselves.

0:21:430:21:44

-I'm Ifan and I'm from Pencoed.

-I'm Gareth from Llandeilo.

0:21:440:21:47

Obviously, you're from Only Boys Aloud.

0:21:470:21:49

Can you tell us what a year you've had?

0:21:490:21:50

We've had an absolutely fantastic year.

0:21:500:21:52

We came third on Britain's Got Talent.

0:21:520:21:54

That was at the start of the year

0:21:540:21:56

and over the summer we recorded an album, which is out now.

0:21:560:21:58

So it's generally been an amazing year.

0:21:580:22:00

Amazing. So I know you're singing a song for us this evening.

0:22:000:22:03

What will you be singing?

0:22:030:22:04

We're going to be singing a song by John Lennon.

0:22:040:22:06

It's a peace song,

0:22:060:22:07

written originally about the Vietnam War and it's very relevant to today.

APPLAUSE

0:26:540:26:57

Christmas is a time for giving presents

0:27:070:27:10

and going to see old friends.

0:27:100:27:12

I'm about to call in and have a chat with somebody

0:27:120:27:15

whom I'm sure you'll recognise.

0:27:150:27:17

Not that you need any introduction, Mr Des O'Connor.

0:27:180:27:22

THEY LAUGH

0:27:220:27:24

Thank you so much for letting us into your beautiful home today.

0:27:240:27:27

No, it's... I'm keeping a welcome for you. It makes a change.

0:27:270:27:30

You're an absolute legend,

0:27:300:27:31

and I had an amazing time performing with you at the Palladium.

0:27:310:27:34

You were my Wizard and I was your Dorothy.

0:27:340:27:36

It was fun, wasn't it? And you were very helpful. Shall we tell them?

0:27:360:27:39

There was an opening song. Oh, it was a very difficult song to sing.

0:27:390:27:43

-Oh, yeah.

-I said, "I'm never going to remember all these words.

0:27:430:27:46

I'm going to stick some words on you in case, make sure you turn

0:27:460:27:49

it the right way, and not show the audience."

0:27:490:27:51

Remember the time where someone had forgotten to put

0:27:510:27:54

-the book on stage with the words in?

-Yes. I do.

0:27:540:27:57

It was the first time I sang the song in Japanese.

0:27:570:27:59

THEY LAUGH

0:27:590:28:01

You're so funny!

0:28:010:28:02

And you were very helpful, you know, people said to me,

0:28:020:28:05

"She'll learn a lot from you." I learned a lot from YOU.

0:28:050:28:07

It was amazing. I only had 25 to 30 minutes, something like that.

0:28:070:28:11

You were on non-stop.

0:28:110:28:13

How long did it take you to get to the Palladium

0:28:130:28:15

from finishing at theatre school?

0:28:150:28:17

Well... Oh. Six months.

0:28:170:28:19

Six months? Hmm. Took me slightly longer.

0:28:190:28:22

Took me 17 years to get to the Palladium.

0:28:220:28:25

And then it took me another 12 years to become top of the bill.

0:28:250:28:28

And there you were, you know, splattered all round the theatre.

0:28:280:28:30

What will your Christmas Day consist of, do you think?

0:28:300:28:34

Well, I'll be woken up around about 5.45

0:28:340:28:36

by a little fella called Adam, who is eight.

0:28:360:28:39

And then I might, I just might cook.

0:28:390:28:42

-You might cook?

-Yeah.

0:28:420:28:43

Not a turkey cos I remember once they sent me

0:28:430:28:46

one that looked like an albatross.

0:28:460:28:48

THEY LAUGH

0:28:480:28:49

Needed Vaseline to get it in the oven, you know.

0:28:490:28:52

I'll probably do a chicken, a nice roast chicken.

0:28:520:28:55

We are going to have a few of the family round.

0:28:550:28:57

-And so it'll be a nice thing to do. I can cook a bit.

-You can?

0:28:570:29:00

Well, I've got a little gift for you.

0:29:000:29:02

I'll let you open it early

0:29:020:29:03

as I think it will come in handy on Christmas Day.

0:29:030:29:06

What, for the cooking?

0:29:060:29:07

For the cooking. There is a bit of Welsh in there as well.

0:29:070:29:09

A bit of Welsh? Let's have a look what we've got here. What is it? Oh!

0:29:090:29:13

It's an apron of some sort.

0:29:130:29:15

-Exactly.

-Wear that, forget the naked chef, Des.

0:29:150:29:18

You know the famous Welsh song Bread Of Heaven.

0:29:180:29:21

SINGING

0:29:210:29:23

# Bread of heaven

0:29:230:29:24

# Bread of heaven

0:29:240:29:25

# Feed me till I want no more... #

0:29:250:29:28

Feed me till I want no more!

0:29:280:29:30

And it'll just remind you on Christmas Day of a bit

0:29:300:29:32

-of Welshness with the Welsh Dragon there.

-Well, that's lovely.

0:29:320:29:35

Thank you very much, Wales. And thank you very much, Sophie.

0:29:350:29:37

That's all right, no worries.

0:29:370:29:39

-Are you going to sing?

-I am going to sing.

0:29:390:29:41

I've got a kind of running theme in the programme where

0:29:410:29:44

I ask people to introduce the songs for me.

0:29:440:29:46

-Would you do the honour?

-Of course I would! It'd be a pleasure.

0:29:460:29:49

-And you're going to sing a Gershwin song?

-I am.

-Good choice.

0:29:490:29:52

She sings it beautifully.

0:29:520:29:54

Ladies and gentlemen, here's Sophie singing Someone To Watch Over Me.

0:29:540:29:57

# There's a saying old

0:29:590:30:02

# Says that love is blind

0:30:020:30:04

# Still we're often told

0:30:050:30:08

# "Seek and ye shall find"

0:30:080:30:12

# So I'm going to

0:30:120:30:15

# Seek a certain lad I've had

0:30:150:30:20

# In mind

0:30:200:30:23

# Looking everywhere

0:30:260:30:29

# Haven't found him yet

0:30:290:30:31

# He's the big affair I cannot forget

0:30:320:30:39

# Only man I ever

0:30:390:30:43

# Think of with regret

0:30:430:30:46

# I'd like to add his initial

0:30:520:30:56

# To my monogram

0:30:560:31:00

# Tell me where is the shepherd

0:31:020:31:08

# For his lost lamb

0:31:080:31:14

# There's a somebody I'm longing to see

0:31:170:31:22

# I hope that he

0:31:220:31:27

# Turns out to be

0:31:270:31:31

# Someone to watch over me

0:31:310:31:39

# Won't you tell him please to put on some speed

0:31:440:31:50

# Follow my lead

0:31:500:31:54

# Oh, how I need

0:31:540:31:58

# Someone to watch over me

0:31:580:32:06

# Although he may not be the man

0:32:290:32:35

# Some girls think of as handsome

0:32:350:32:41

# To my heart he'll carry the key

0:32:410:32:48

# Won't you tell him please to put on some speed

0:32:540:32:59

# Follow my lead

0:32:590:33:03

# Oh, how I need

0:33:030:33:07

# Someone to watch over me

0:33:070:33:15

# Someone to watch over me

0:33:210:33:29

# Waiting for the boy who's going to watch over me. #

0:33:340:33:42

APPLAUSE

0:33:450:33:48

That was Sophie Evans singing Someone To Watch Over Me.

0:33:510:33:58

How does Father Christmas it into your house on Christmas Day?

0:33:590:34:04

He probably brings a fairy with him.

0:34:050:34:08

-A fairy?

-Yes.

-Or string.

0:34:080:34:11

-He's got special powers to get down the chimney.

-He's got fairy dust!

0:34:110:34:17

Fairy dust makes you fly! Not shrink!

0:34:170:34:21

He could just like get a reindeer to go down the chimney,

0:34:210:34:25

and then grab the keys and just bring it out.

0:34:250:34:29

That's probably what he does. You figured it out.

0:34:290:34:33

I have got a chimney but the fire's on.

0:34:330:34:40

THEY GIGGLE

0:34:400:34:42

SHE WHISPERS AND THEY GIGGLE

0:34:420:34:44

Next on The Really Welsh Christmas Show is Mr Al Lewis.

0:34:440:34:49

# Now you might say

0:34:550:34:59

# What difference do they make

0:34:590:35:02

# These small little things?

0:35:020:35:05

# The truth be told

0:35:070:35:10

# Well, they weigh

0:35:100:35:12

# Heavy on my shoulders

0:35:120:35:15

# Small little things

0:35:150:35:17

# These small little things

0:35:170:35:20

# But all I know

0:35:200:35:23

# And maybe it's the wrong way to go

0:35:230:35:29

# So are we simply

0:35:310:35:33

# Treading water

0:35:330:35:37

# Whilst looking out for

0:35:370:35:40

# Something better?

0:35:400:35:43

# Are we simply

0:35:430:35:46

# Treading water?

0:35:460:35:49

# When maybe what we need

0:35:490:35:52

# Is a simple change of scene

0:35:520:35:56

# But just like fireflies

0:35:560:36:00

# We're burning so brightly

0:36:000:36:04

# But running out of time

0:36:040:36:07

# Aaaahhh

0:36:090:36:13

# So are we simply

0:36:290:36:32

# Treading water

0:36:320:36:35

# Whilst looking out for

0:36:350:36:38

# Yes, love

# All our wisdom disappears

0:39:520:39:57

# Love makes fools of everyone

0:40:470:40:49

Well, that's nearly the end of the show but before our last song,

0:40:560:40:59

let me leave you with this little thought.

0:40:590:41:01

It's the most wonderful time of the year, so why not have some chestnuts

0:41:010:41:05

roasting on an open fire, whilst walking in a winter wonderland?

0:41:050:41:09

Do have yourself a merry little Christmas

0:41:090:41:12

and may all your Christmases be Welsh.

0:41:120:41:15

Merry Christmas!

0:41:150:41:17

# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

0:41:200:41:28

# Just like the ones I used to know

0:41:280:41:35

0:41:360:41:41

# And children listen

0:41:410:41:45

# To hear sleigh bells in the snow

0:41:450:41:52

# I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

0:41:550:42:03

# With every Christmas card I write

0:42:040:42:10
