UPDATE: Congratulations hotsnotty2!
A few years ago, I remember flipping on the TV to channel surf only to find a group of five pretty women dressed in beautiful gowns, singing, dancing and playing violins on stage to Irish classics. I was awestruck. They were so good! I tuned in towards the end of the televised concert, so when it ended, I switched the channel to something else, not catching who they were. I forgot about it, until a few weeks ago when I had the opportunity to re-aquaint myself with these interesting Irish singers. Thanks to Music Moms, I was able to review the just released Celtic Woman: Songs From The Heart CD.
As soon as the first song started playing, i knew it was the group I had seen on TV. Those voices are so beautiful! Unlike anything else. Don't believe me? Go here to take a listen.
Celtic Women features vocalists Lisa Kelly, Chloe Agnew, Lynn Hilary, and Alex Sharpe, with violinist Mairead Nesbitt. Right now they are touring the United States, so you can get a chance to see them live! Check here for upcoming tour dates. These ladies have been pretty busy; Celtic Woman have sold more than 3.8 million records in the U.S. alone, and have had 7 sold out US tours. It's not hard to see why, since they are that good.
It struck an emotional chord listening to them sing. They did covers of songs such as Billy Joel's "Goodnight My Angel", Sting's "Field of Gold", and Mariah Carey's "When You Believe", which is a personal favorite of mine.
My mommy rating: ***** (or five stars) for Celtic Woman!
Now you can nab your own copy of Celtic Women here! Music Moms was generous enough to let one lucky reader win a Songs From the Heart deluxe experience CD, which includes an 18-month calender and heart charm keepsake.
