Stormzy, real name Michael Omari Jr, has often referred to his Christian faith in his music.
‘Blinded By Your Grace’, a two-part song on his 2017 debut album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, hears the artist address God. Some of the track’s lyrics reads: “Lord, I’ve been broken / Although I’m not worthy / You fixed me … You came and saved me”.
Stormzy’s reading will be followed by the Basque carol ‘Sing Lullaby’, which will be performed by south London boys’ choir Libera.
Hugh Faupel, executive producer at BBC Studios, said his team “look for people to bring the Christmas story alive”, and that he was “delighted” that Stormzy was to deliver the reading.
