O...M...G!

Celtic Woman is running a competition where one lucky person gets to sing with them at the 3Arena in Dublin on September 2, 2017!
https://www.facebook.com/RTEentertainment/videos/1369296059785758/

Presumably the winner would be singing as part of the choir.

If you're an interested singer or know someone who is, here's the site to register:
https://celticwoman.myauditionstage.com/#/

You have to be a resident of Ireland (for competition #1) or UK (for competitions #2 and #3).

AND....

They're recording it for PBS (and presumably DVD) !!!!
https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2017/0703/887332-celtic-women/

I started a new thread for the DVD to keep the competition and the DVD discussions separate:

Looks like there's in fact 3 separate competitions!


1) Competition to sing backing vocals during the 3Arena show (VoA PBS special / DVD) in Dublin on Sept 2:

One winner
https://www.celticwoman.com/irish-competition-/


2) Competition to sing at one of the UK tour shows

7 lucky Angels will be chosen to perform alongside Celtic Woman at one of their UK tour dates, singing to thousands of people in some of the UK's biggest venues.

3) One of the winners of competition #2 gets to, well, I'll let you read and interpret...

One ultimate Celtic Angel will then be chosen to travel to the USA on an all-expenses paid trip to star alongside Celtic Woman at one of their iconic 2018 shows.

Yay for Them
Bummer for us.
I understand for UK, or Ireland.
They could add a US resident for at least a show in the US for thanking America its root to success we are as much fans of the songs!

Anyway fun to witness who is the special passionate can I get the back tracks to sing to on my own to share. Cheesy

I get that they would prefer Irish singers because it's an Irish group.

I get that they would prefer a UK singer for the UK tour because the audiences there would probably prefer to cheer on a local singer.

Paying someone's expenses to travel all over the US for 90+ shows is far more expensive than paying for a UK singer to do a few UK shows.

But as rfcw mentioned, America is their biggest audience and CW would not be where they are today without the loyal and super-passionate American fans.

I doubt it will go anywhere, but I commented on one of Méav's posts about the competition to see if I could plant a seed as far as an American competition goes. Can't really hurt to ask.

If they do an American competition, I will ABSOLUTELY audition! It's always been a HUGE dream of mine to sing with Celtic Woman. I used to hope to be a member of the group, but I gave up on that ridiculous dream a long time ago, because I mean, I'm not Irish. But if I could perform with them as a guest, even just one song, I would be so happy! And for me, it's not about gaining fame or fortune or whatever. Celtic Woman has changed my life in so many ways, and I idolize them and respect them so much. If I could sing with them, even once, I would be able to die a happy woman. It would be an absolute dream come true!

Mairead and Eabha clarified some of the conditions of the Irish singer competition:
- Over the age of 14
- Male or female
- Background in any style of singing (classical, pop, jazz, anything goes)
- You don't have to use the 3 songs / backing tracks provided on the competition page, but you can if you wish

BTW I just had a thought.

Audience: Congratulations!

lol

But anyway, I think the reason they haven't announced a US competition is because they haven't put out the official US 2018 tour schedule. I think they want to finish that up, and make sure everything is squared away before they announce any competition. I know that's what I would do, and it is still very early.

 Cheesy

If anyone needs the sheet music for the voice parts, here they are:

Danny Boy
https://www.celticwoman.com/index.cfm?page=danny-boy&udipreview=1

My Heart Will Go On
https://www.celticwoman.com/index.cfm?page=my-heart-will-go-on-sheet-music&udipreview=1

Time To Say Goodbye
https://www.celticwoman.com/index.cfm?page=time-to-say-goodbye&udipreview=1

They might disappear after the contest is over, so if you might want them for later, I'd recommend grabbing them now.

Personally, if I were going to sing to these, I do it by ear instead of by sheet music. But then again, I can't sing.  Cheesy
