WHY? WHY? WHY?: Isn't there something cruel about making Gareth Gates cover Spirit In The Sky? It might be for charity, but it really demonstrates his weakness as a singer in every area - it's like plucking someone from a Sunday League and making them play for Arsenal, or getting Helen Brinton to try out as a cheerleader. It's a ridiculous song which can only work by a singer who can belt out a tune with absolute, but faked, conviction. Gates sings it like he's Aled Jones doing a hymn.
