Celtic Woman's been doing a contest once a week that should extend for the rest of the North American leg of the Destiny tour.

Format:

  • Celtic Woman Tour posts a question on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/celticwoman/?fref=ts
  • For each question, fans are asked to submit their answer as a comment on the post.
  • Sometimes, there's an additional criteria mentioned, such as sharing the post. I'm not certain if this is a requirement to qualify for the prize, but I'd recommend you do it regardlesss.
  • The answer must be submitted before the draw. There's no specified time frame for submitting an answer, although it's probably around 24 hours.
  • For each round of the contest, a single winner is chosen at random from all the people who commented on the post with the correct answer.
  • The winner is usually announced the day after the question is posted.

Prizes:

The winner is offered a choice between one of the following:

  • Signed copy of the Destiny album.
  • Signed copy of the Destiny DVD.

Draw 5:

Question:
  • Éabha McMahon sings part of a song from Destiny.
  • The segment is somewhere on the album.
  • Where is it in the album?

Note: I assume they just want the name of the song it's from, but it's possible they want the track number (Éabha did ask "where" the segment was, not what song it was from).
Some people have been posting the time window of the song during which Éabha sang this part. That level of precision, while it's awesome to see, is believed to be unnecessary for this contest. But take no chances, I suppose...
