Celtic Woman Review & Giveaway

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~


 
About Celtic Woman, Songs from the Heart!

This exciting new CD is from Celtic Woman, a 5 member Irish female ensemble known for putting a modern twist on the Celtic Sound. Celtic Woman features vocalists Lisa Kelly, Chloe Agnew, Lynn Hilary and Alex Sharpe with violinist Mairead Nesbit.

This group continues to delight fans moving seamlessly between Irish classics, contemporary covers and original compositions. The Songs from the Heart CD includes contemporary hits like Sting’s “Fields of Gold” , Billy Joel’s “Goodnight My Angel” and Mariah Carey's "When You Believe."


Celtic Woman is all over the Billboard charts, selling more than 3.8 million records in the U.S. alone, and has had 7 sold-out US Tours . They are currently kicking off their tour which includes dates at New York City ’s famed Radio City Music Hall . They’ve performed on Dancing With the Stars and will have an upcoming PBS special.

My Celtic Woman Experience!
When I was asked to do the review for Celtic Woman I had never heard of them. Although we do not listen to the radio much when we are in the car and I don't keep up much with current music. However, I absolutely love Celtic music and was really looking forward to listening to this group.

I was completely blown away when listening to the beauty and harmonious blend this group of 5 women on the Celtic Woman Songs from the Heart CD. Celtic Woman is a very talented singing group and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing popular songs sung slightly different.  My favorite song is "Amazing Grace." It is such a classic song and Celtic Woman did an awesome job that it gave me goose bumps!

When I need something relaxing to listen to in the car, I put in this CD. Ethan loves listening to it as well and becomes really quiet. Go watch a clip of the Celtic Woman Songs From the Heart clip from their PBS special on YouTube and you will absolutely enjoy listening to them as well!

BUY IT! You can purchase the CD directly from Amazon. Check here for the list of US Tour Dates and to purchase tickets.

                    My mom has their Christmas CD and it is one of my favorites. I haven't heard any of the songs off this CD, but I listened to a sample of "O, America" on their website. If this CD is anything like the Christmas, I imagine that all the songs are amazing!
