Actor and singer Robert Lonsdale unveils his debut single 'Fight the Fight' taken from 'From Here To Eternity', the new West End musical by Tim Rice based on the attack of Pearl Harbor. The single arrived on the anniversary of the World War II events.
The black and white video shows Robert singing and playing his acoustic guitar on the stage of an abandoned theatre, with cut scenes showing him playing cards surrounded by female admirers, before later donning his 1940s military uniform and leaving a theatre dressing room. Robert's gentle, breathy vocals echoes James Blunt, and the emotion of Tim Rice's lyrics are intensified by the infectious acoustic melody courtesy of composer Stuart Brayson.
'From Here To Eternity' marks the first collaboration between Rice ('Jesus Christ Superstar', 'Evita', 'The Lion King') and Brayson, the latter of whom faced his West End debut towards the end of last year. Robert takes the lead part of Private Prewitt in the production and achieved wide acclaim for his performance. The musical has been adapted from the novel of the same name by Bill Oakes and is directed by Tamara Harvey. On opening in November 2013, the show received remarkably glowing reviews. Robert's previous acting ventures include stints on 'Silent Witness' and 'Doctors' and appearances on miniseries 'A Passionate Woman' and, most recently, 'Walking With The Enemy'.
