Tonight I heard the best version of You Raise Me Up that I’ve ever heard. Are you familiar with Celtic Woman? If not, you are in for a treat too!
So apparently, per Wikipedia, Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical ensemble conceived and created by David Kavanagh, Sharon Browne and David Downes, a former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance. Their debut album is the same name, Celtic Woman. And since there are several women, it totally confused me at first hunting down who they are.
Maybe because it is midnight when I’m doing my research.
Anyway, I think you will agree, this is one of the most beautiful versions of this song ever!!
Again, per wikipedia, Celtic Woman reached #1 on the World Music charts within weeks and remained there for a record 81 weeks.
The astonishing success led the group’s musical director, David Downes, to adopt the title ‘Celtic Woman’ as their permanent name. (See I knew there had to be a story behind this name!) Since then, Celtic Woman have toured the United States and Japan.
Had you already heard of them?
