Belfast shoppers will have no problems getting into the festive spirit as one man has taken to cheerfully belting out Christmas carols in the city centre.

Everyone walking through the Corn Market area on Monday afternoon was treated to a medley of merry music, with songs including Let it Snow and Jingle Bells.

The sensational singer was a 45-year-old Romanian man called Carlos Aflat.

Mr Aflat said he loves to sing in the city centre as it attracts 'the ladies'.

"It's so exciting", he says with a face brimming with happiness.

"People are so exciting. I love Belfast, I always did. I enjoy here because of so many beautiful ladies - they smile to me, they're so kind to me and they put some money.

"Money is not my priority but I will say, I need more than money, I need their smiles and they smiled to me. I got everything I wanted. They smile to me, I'm so excited."

Carlos said he sang on Belfast's streets last year too, but admits his performance wasn't great as he had changed his singing style. He added that he loves the people who stop to watch him.

"I'm sharing my experience with them and they are part of my music. When I sing they are part of me. It's really wonderful- very nice experience to me. I think people love it and I can see this in their faces."
