If you are the type of person who wants to jump from one music genre to another, then you’ll probably find the group Celtic Woman a perfect fit for that.
The all-female Irish musical group consists of talented singers.
In their credentials are eleven albums, a number of world tours, and over nine million records sold worldwide.
It all started back in 2004 when musical director David Downes recruited five talented female musicians. The initial repertoire included traditional Celtic tunes and modern songs.
“A fresh fusion of traditional Irish music alongside contemporary songcraft”, that’s how they describe Celtic Woman’s music.
Celtic Woman’s lineup continues to change over the years but the unique, signature sound remains intact. Despite the changes, the group continues to beautifully represent Irish music and culture.
A description on the official website states,
“Celtic Woman celebrates Ireland’s rich musical and cultural heritage while continuing its legacy of introducing some of Ireland’s most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage.”
They are not just good singers, they also look majestic whenever they’re on stage.
Their music brings to life centuries of musical and cultural tradition.
Showcasing individual and collaborative talent, Celtic Woman is known for their angelic voices and the mesmerizing accompaniment consisting of dancers, bagpipers, and a full band playing traditional Celtic instruments.
That includes everything from the bodhran and tin whistle to the bouzouki and Uilleann pipes.
Here’s their “amazing” stage performance of “Amazing Grace”.
This is just one of the countless concerts that they’ve held. It will certainly leave you with a good impression of how talented they really are, not just at their music but at their showmanship, as well.
The concert showcasing the worship song set the bar high for stage acts.
As always, theirs was a full production complete with an impressive stage setup, stunning dresses, dramatic lighting, and a band that highlighted their powerful vocals and set the performance off perfectly.
As a powerful Christian hymn sung in churches and religious services, “Amazing Grace” speaks of the forgiveness and redemption of souls made possible through the mercy of God.
“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found.
Was blind but now I see.”
It isn’t an ordinary song that anyone can just cover and perform.
These ladies delivered and solidified the wonderful message of the song.
Everything was extraordinarily beautiful and solemn. They blended so perfectly well.
Despite the grand stage set-up, the group kept focus on the song and sung it with apparent reverence.
The comforting message of the touching hymn was brought to life by the resonant sound of their angelic voices and harmonious instruments that filled the room.
Add to that the dramatic effect brought about by the smoke and lighting.
With their extraordinary way of representing Irish culture, impeccable singing talent, and visually stunning concerts, the Celtic Woman gained an immense amount of worldwide success and attention.
It’s easy to see why they’re such a powerhouse on the international stage.
With over 77 million views on YouTube, the rendition of the classic Christian hymn had viewers commenting on how it never fails to touch hearts and inspire.
“I can’t stop listen this song, it’s amazing and The Celtic Women glorify God with their voices.”
“Simply speechless… that has to be one of the most beautiful, powerful, and emotional versions ever sung. It’s a special song, means so much to many people, myself included. Thank you, Celtic Woman.”
Concerts should be like this, not just plainly singing on stage, wouldn’t you agree? Performances on big stages must be entertaining both to the eyes and ears. Thankfully, the Celtic Woman can give us the best of both worlds.
