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.
