Keep a look out for our special interviews with new members of Irish Women in Harmony, coming later this week.
After the undeniable success of their cover of 'Dreams' by The Cranberries – the charity single raised over €250, 000 for Safe Ireland – The Irish Women in Harmony are back, this time with a Christmas single. 'Together At Christmas' will be released November 20th, and all proceeds will go to aid Childline.
The original song was written and produced by RuthAnne, with all parts recorded remotely by 30 of Ireland’s finest female musicians. ‘Together at Christmas’ also includes a choir of young Irish girls after a call out was made to the next generation of aspiring female singers.
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 children recorded their parts for the song remotely and sent them to RuthAnne, who put it all together like only she can. This choir of next generation voices was an integral part of magic around creating the single. 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 Irish Women in Harmony tween choir are: 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, and Success Omochere.
“It’s been such a joy to write and produce our original Christmas song ‘Together At Christmas’," says writer and Irish Women in Harmony founder RuthAnne. "Hearing all the amazing Irish female talent come together again has been the best Christmas gift! We’re also thrilled to work in support of Childline, which is a charity very close to all of our hearts. Irish Women in Harmony is hoping ‘Together at Christmas’ will bring joy and festive spirit to the Christmas season, which we all need this year more than ever.”
