2012 Already!

Hi All!

Wow, it's been a LONG time since my last blog! Apologies but it's been a hectic year and at least tweets keep everyone out there up to speed day to day! I will try not to let it get this long again though!

What a year it's been!

We did a tour of the States, our second home at this stage, with Songs from the Heart. We then went on to do tours of Europe and Japan with lots of promo trips in between in Germany and Tokyo.
Here are some links below to the promo clip from one of our trips to Germany and also two links from Japan; a cause close to our hearts, the Tsunami fundraiser and our red carpet moment doing the theme song for the movie Princess Toyotomi.

We went on to do our new DVD and CD Believe at the beautiful Fox Theater in Atlanta. It was an incredible experience and one that we all hope you will enjoy when we go on tour in February.
As of today we are No.1 on the Amazon charts ahead of great company! Have a look above!!
Such exciting news!

I know my #Celticcuties won't mind me saying that the highlight of my year in 2011 had to be my marriage!! We got away to Maui, Hawaii and had the most amazing time! The beauty of the place was really astounding as you can see in the pic above. It was super relaxed and could not have been more perfect.
There have been a lot of questions about my dress! It was the first one I tried and I fell in love with it straight away! It is a 40's vintage couture Lillie Rubin silk & gold thread gown from the beautiful Goddess Room in Ireland. I also got my 40's vintage couture clutch from Paris 1900 in Santa Monica.
There you go! Two amazing places to check out!

We then had some TV shows in Germany for Christmas and also our Christmas Celebration Symphony Tour of the States which was a new departure for us! It was amazing to perform with orchestras in different cities and we hope to do it again in 2012!

Christmas and New Year was great for us with family and a lovely end to 2011!

It hard to believe it is now 2012 and we are about to start a new tour in a few weeks!
Believe, our new live tour, will be very exciting. We will not have the wonderful Lisa Kelly with us this time as you know. She has been with us from the beginning and will be keeping an eye on us and visiting from time to time! We will miss your beautiful presence on and off stage Lisa! I know though that Lisa is as happy as we are with our new Celtic Woman Susan McFadden. It will be fantastic to work with Susan and welcome her to the Celtic Woman family!
We start rehearsals really soon and are in studio too next week so keep tuned to see what's coming up next!
We can't wait to bring Believe to you and take you on a new journey with us.

2012 also brings us a new Tinker Bell movie! I am so excited to be doing Tinker Bell Secret of the Wings. It has always been a dream come true for me to be featured in the Tinker Bell movies and now that Tink is coming back to Pixie Hollow for the fourth movie in the series, I am beyond psyched to be featured once again! Here is a link to the new clip!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year and really looking forward to seeing you all on Believe very soon!
