Ipswich soul singer Ashton Jones hit all the right notes when recording the soundtrack for this year’s festive commercial by internet giant Amazon.
Ashton, who describes himself as a British funk and soul songwriter specialising in “vibrant, dynamic live soul and funk performances” is a featured vocalist on the feel-good 90-second film.
The advert, which first aired on ITV on Saturday, November 3, features a series of animated delivery boxes singing along to the tune of ‘Can You Feel It’ by The Jackson Five.
Breaking the news to his fans, Ashton tweeted: “Super proud to share that I am a featured vocalist on the 2018 #Amazon Xmas TV Commercial, airing last night on ITV for the first time.
“I feel very privileged indeed to be asked to work with such a huge brand, immortalised as a singing cardboard box!”
The advert will be aired internationally until Christmas Day.
