If you have a daughter, niece, sister or young woman in your life who refuses to stop singing (and is also quite good at it), their chance to shine may have arrived.
Irish Women in Harmony scored a huge hit earlier this summer with their cover of The Cranberries' 'Dreams', which raised a huge amount of money for the charity SAFE Ireland, which supports women and children experiencing domestic violence and abuse. Tens of Irish female musicians and singers teamed up for the project, which was headed by Ruth-Anne Cunningham (who also co-ordinated, produced and arranged the whole thing herself.)
Now, Irish Women in Harmony are re-teaming for a Christmas single - and they're looking for young female singers to take part.
They're looking specifically for 12 girls, aged 12 or under, to join a tween choir that will be on the single.
If you want to take part, you should submit a 30-second video clip of yourself singing ‘Dreams’ to [email protected] or post/dm your video on Instagram, tagging @irishwomeninharmony and the hashtag #IWIHSearch. The closing date is September 30th and you must have your parent/guardian's permission to take part.
Ruth-Anne Cunningham said: "Irish Women In Harmony is all about inspiring young Irish girls to get into music and dream big. When I was younger I always wanted to sing at any opportunity I got, so we’d like to give 12 x 12s-and-under the chance to sing with us on our Christmas project. And we are so excited to hear your submissions.”
