Irish Women In Harmony are back with a brand new song after the huge success of their first single.
The talented group of Irish women got together earlier this year to release a cover of The Cranberries’ song Dreams which topped the charts and raised important funds for Safe Ireland.
Now, they’ve released a Christmas song written and produced by RuthAnne, all recorded remotely by 30 of Ireland’s finest female musicians.
‘Together at Christmas’ features the use of familiar Christmas song lyrics and also includes a choir of young Irish girls.
The Irish Women In Harmony group includes singers like Aimee, Erica Cody, Lyra, Una Healy, Wyvern Lingo and many more.
Earlier this year, Irish Women In Harmony made a nationwide call out in search of singers for a ‘Tween Choir’ that would feature the voices of Irish girls under the age of 12, as part of the Christmas single.
Over 1,500 entries were received from across the country, which was narrowed down to 50 semi-finalists and lastly, the lucky 18 were chosen. Like all other members of IWIH, the young girls recorded their parts for the song remotely and sent them to RuthAnne, who put it all together like only she can.
Alisha Weir, Aoife Sweeney, Aoife Delaney, Aurora Mcintosh, Doireann Mcnally, Enya Cox, Joya & Priya Hobson, Keelyn Culligan, Molly Verdier, Molly Mccann, Naoise Scully, Niamh Smith, Robyn Stack, Saoirse Ruane, Savannah Phoenix Munroe, Sky Dempsey, Sophie Bao Garraghy, Success Omochere.
Through lending their voices to the track, these young Irish women have had both the opportunity to be a part of Irish Women In Harmony, and the opportunity to support their fellow children through Childline, the charity chosen to support this time around.
Children and young people who have turned to Childline have spoken about experiencing issues including abuse and violence, neglect, mental health issues and other challenges. Funds raised by the song will help to continue this vital support.
