The band were in LA to attend the Grammy Awards, where they were nominated for the Best World Album.

They narrowly missed out to Chinese cellist Yo-Yo Ma, but it was still a great achievement to get the nomination and rub shoulders with the world’s leading musical talents.

And they showed off their stunning voices and harmonies in the 1 Mic 1 Take performance, where they chose to sing the beautiful folk ballad Danny Boy.

Take a look for yourself.

Celtic Woman were formed in 2004, and have toured the world performing classic Irish folk songs as well as various other genres.

The band has changed its members on a few occasions, but the musical ability and talents of the overall band has never been in question.
