Irish super group search for singers to feature on Christmas single

by Rachel Darcy

The super group behind the feel good cover of the Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’ taking over Irish airwaves have announced an exciting new competition for aspiring young vocalists across Ireland.

‘Dreams’ is the debut single by Irish Women In Harmony (IWIH), and has been widely noted as one of the feel-good, positive energy stories to emerge from the summer of lockdown in Ireland.

This cover of Cranberries classic has raised money and awareness for Safe Ireland, an organisation that provides support for women and children who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse.

Since it’s June debut, ‘Dreams’ has grown into a bona fide hit, a campaign rounded off with a sublime, socially-distanced performance on the first show of the returning Late Late Show earlier this month.

Following the reception of ‘Dreams’, Irish Women In Harmony are now making plans to release an exciting new Christmas single. For the new single, the group are looking for twelve talented girls, aged twelve years and under, to join them as a tween choir for the recording.

IWIH’s RuthAnne 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.”

If you think you have what it takes to be one of the 12 members of the 12-and-under choir and join Irish Women In Harmony, please submit a 30-second video clip of you singing ‘Dreams’ to irishwomeninharmony@gmail.com or post/dm your video on Instagram tagging @irishwomeninharmony and the hashtag #IWIHSearch.

Please make sure you have the permission of a parent or guardian before you submit your entry.

The twelve winners will be selected by RuthAnne and members of the Irish Women In Harmony project. In line with current government guidelines, all COVID social-distancing measures will be observed for the recording.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Wednesday 30th September.
