The winners will be announced at a Gala Night in New York on 22 June.
In the programme, produced by Athena Media, Iarla met Peter at his home studio in London to talk about Peter's own vocal journey and asked what singing meant to him. It was a diverse conversation where Peter shared his favourite music, from The Beatles' 'Love Me Do' and songs of the "Pakistani Pavarotti", Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to his key musical influences including Otis Redding and Nina Simone.
"I think everyone, musical or not, should learn to sing and find out about their voice…..I think it's an understanding of interpretation, as well as … delivering melody" says Peter as part of the programme.
