Put Celtic Woman in Your First Aid Kit:
If you are having a tough day, try this out: it's surprising how powerful this song is in the hands of Celtic Woman (from their album "Celtic Woman"). I got the album on iTunes, but this one single at 99 cents - well, the best things in life ARE free, or they are 99 cents. Here is a link to a very good version that doesn't allow embedding:
And here is a good embedded version - however, there is no substitute for hearing it blasting on some great speakers or earphones.
I know it seems like someone who writes for women would be inclined to really like a group that looks like this - but actually it's not their presentation that got me at all. It's the sound. Then I could appreciate the rest.
It would be very hard for anyone to hear Celtic Woman's take on "You Raise Me Up" and not be moved or inspired. These two performances are in different keys... either way, totally exquisite, an ear bath of the highest order with candles and pink water and a glass of something...
