Elvis Presley said Danny Boy must have been written by the angels, and when you hear Irish vocal group Celtic Woman perform this classic, you could easily believe it. It’s an awe-inspiring song and few have it justice as well as Celtic Woman.
They recorded in when they dropped into the world famous Capitol Studios in LA recently to take part in the 1 Mic 1 Take challenge.
They set the bar somewhere high up in the stars for any other artists want to sing Danny Boy. Seriously, this will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!
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.
