Irish Women In Harmony covered The Cranberries 'Dreams' to raise funds for Safe Ireland.
Irish Women In Harmony have raised €235,567 for Safe Ireland since the release of their cover of ‘Dreams’ – which dropped on June 18th, 2020.
Safe Ireland aims to protect women and children from abuse throughout Ireland, and the funds raised from the single went directly to women and children through the charity.
“I can’t believe it’s been a year since the Irish women in music came together to do this,” said RuthAnne Cunningham, artist and founder of Irish Women In Harmony. “As a collective to collaborate and create something that had such an impact, whilst raising money for such an important cause honestly is something we are just so so proud of. We hope to continue to empower more Irish females in the future.”
The song has received over 5 million streams on Spotify and the video has been viewed over 3 million times on social media. It made history by gathering together the most Irish female artists ever on one song and was also the first female act to hold the number 1 spot on the Official Irish Homegrown Chart.
“‘Dreams’ named an issue, and offered solace in the middle of a painful period, it was really powerful,” said Mary McDermot, CEO of Safe Ireland. “we see the power of art, how it moves and names, and brings about action. Thank you.”
