Unbelievable if Amazing Grace was added my Dream would be come true! Yet it has! Grin

I know these were only put out during the competition but it is SO NICE to have more karaoke tracks of Celtic Woman songs!

I'd love that! And walk Beside Me!!!

Here are our three contenders!

Megan Pottinger
18
From Co. Meath
- You Raise Me Up was pretty, though straightforward
- Nella Fantasia was really impressive! When she hits those high notes, it reminded me of a young Chloë. The touch of vibrato was nice but not overdone
- Her a cappella song was pretty as well
- Perhaps the most developed classical voice of the three

Zena Donnelly
14
From Dublin
- She has some delightful and delicate ornamentations
- I like the artistic twists she put on the arrangements instead of justing singing them straight forward
- Doesn't she look a bit like teenage-Chloë?
- I really like her artistic flare
- As her voice continues to develop, I think she might be one to watch out for.

Anabel Sweeney
16
From Co. Wicklow
- I wasn't meaning to bring Chloë into each of these, but she really does look like Chloë
- She has a nice voice and potentially a powerful one as well
- I think she'd have the best initial stage presence of the three

- She sang My Land <3

P.S. I think we can tell from the YouTube likes it's a 2-person race (and potentially an interesting one), although I think people are being a little harsh with one of the singers.

They've all got potential and I'm pretty sure Méav, the girls, and anyone else the winner has the fortune to work with can help them start fulfilling that potential quickly.

I think they're all promising singer and all have different strengths.

I do know a few amazing singers from the US that have strong and well-developed voices and are only getting better with time. I think they would have done very well had the field not been limited to Irish residents. I have my fingers crossed they do a competition in North America.

Congrats to Anabel Sweeney, who was announced as the winner of the competition to sing with Celtic Woman at the 3Arena show in Dublin on September 2.

Here's what Anabel had to say:

I’m deeply grateful to everyone for all acts of kindness in taking time out to vote for me! I cannot believe that I made it! You have made my dreams come true! Cannot wait to perform in the Voices of Angels show in the 3Arena with Celtic Woman.

Here's some excellent covers by competition winner Anabel Sweeney.

All of them are covers of Brendan Graham songs.  Wink

My Land:
https://youtu.be/TsoZV9-sL64

Orphan Girl:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsoZV9-sL64
... here's another version of her performing it live. I didn't see it live, but it has a special connection for me Wink https://youtu.be/iTrTYTzYDqQ

Here's an older, from when she was only 14.
When I Grow Up:
https://youtu.be/XED06ybc0mc


You can also try to spot her in this music video, although it's not the best available video to appreciate her musical talents.

Bressie - Show Me Love:
https://youtu.be/LktPForDE5c



For those that don't know, it looks like Anabel is also an actress known for Calvary (2014), The Legend of Longwood (2014) and Nelly & Nora (2015):
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5364078/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t20

... and this appears to be her interviewing Saoirse Ronan :O

   I thought  she  might  win  it.  I  was  kind  of  pulling  for  Megan, but  they  were  all  good.   Cool

I voted for her.  I'm glad she won.  I hope this means they will do My Land again.

I feel like the other two finalists deserve some love too.

Here's some videos of contest finalist Zena Donnelly.

She has been in the spotlight since she was young. She may not hit every single note (yet), but she has an incredibly strong voice! With that much power, I really think she's going to go places.
Side-note: She looks a bit like Lindsay Lohan. Let's hope stardom has a bit less of a destructive effect on her.  Roll Eyes


Hope you enjoy!

There's a different local competition winner performing at each show on their UK tour.

Here's a clip from their shown in Londin, with Zoe Mace performing The Prayer:

She has quite a voice and the piano arrangement is really good!
