Legendary singer and British rock and roll pioneer Sir Cliff Richard has delivered an exclusive session of music and stories from his home in Barbados as part of the Royal Albert Home sessions.
In over 6 decades, Sir Cliff has recorded almost 1,300 song titles, composed 100 songs, achieved 14 number one singles and 7 chart-topping albums. He received a Knighthood in 1995 for his tireless charity work and was one of the Olympic torch bearers ahead of the 2012 Games.
Sir Cliff has performed at the Royal Albert Hall on well over 100 occasions from his first appearance at the venue in 1959 to most recently playing in 2018 as part of his 60th anniversary tour.
Sir Cliff is due to make a return to the venue in September this year to coincide with his 80th birthday and has lent his support to the Royal Albert Hall by presenting an exclusive lockdown session for fans.

The session which was streamed live on Sunday afternoon features Cliff performing magnificent renditions of his debut hit Move It, Devil Woman, Ocean Deep and his greatest selling record, We Don’t Talk Anymore around his home.
Andy Howells of Entertainment South Wales says:
“It’s great to see Sir Cliff on top form. He has been very present on social media during the lockdown from supporting charities to compiling playlists of his back catalogue of hits for his fans.
“In some ways this is a bonus for those who cannot get to see him now. Move It is definitely worth checking out, even though Cliff has reinvented it several times over the years it still remains a stellar track, while pop fans will love the renditions of Devil Woman and We Don’t Talk Anymore and the ballad Ocean Deep as well as the anecdotes between songs.
“I’m sure the Royal Albert Hall, which has to be my favourite venue of seeing Cliff perform live will appreciate this session as much as his fans do too.”
The Royal Albert Home series features artists generously sharing their work in order that audiences generously support the Royal Albert Hall, so the venue can return strong when it reopens its doors to the world after COVID19 restrictions are lifted by the UK Government.
