Once you’ve been part of a boyband,
it’s kind of difficult to be taken seriously
after that - particularly artistically. Lee Ryan
from Blue hasn't let such stigma keep him
down though. He's written a ten minute
song about the life of Jesus and has spent
£26,000 of his own money assembling a
20-piece orchestra to get it sounding just right.
Early feedback from Patti LaBelle and Angie
Stone has been encouraging and Lee is
apparently sounding "rather good on it too -
hitting some really high notes".
We haven't managed to get hold of the song
yet, but here's Lee doing an acoustic
version of his rather pretty and summery new
single Secret Love. Plus more about Lee's music
choices - what song does he wake up to, have
sex to, once loved but can't bear to listen to now?
