#MondayMusic Donna Taggart delivers beautiful rendition of Remember When
We initially featured Donna Taggart here at Tyrone Life just over two years ago when we were blown away by the depth and quality of her voice in singing “Jealous of the Angels”.
Like most people who had simply hit play on Donna’s version of the hit song, written by Jenn Bostic, for the first time, it was a song that struck a chord and simply overwhelmed the emotions. The story since that has been an equally overwhelming one…
In the interim, the song has rocketed to a truly remarkable 100 million views online with over 5 million now also since it was uploaded to Youtube. Throw in the fact it has been number one in over 40 countries and you can see the level of popularity that Donna and this song has achieved.
There is no doubt the success has been duly earned and the fantastically talented Omagh singer has also treated us too much more, with “Mom” in particular standing out for us.
We are also very excited to hear that Donna has just completed filming a new video for her new single for which she uploaded the photo below and commented: “New music video coming soon How beautiful is my country xx”. Sentiments we have echoed here at Tyrone Life on many occasions with some truly splendid images of our amazing landscape. We know that Donna was filming at the beautiful setting by Loughmacrory and we are certainly looking forward to that.
Of course Donna is exceptionally busy preparing for her upcoming “Jealous of the Angels” Tour and you can check out the dates below. If you have not already had a chance to check Donna out in concert then we can assure you it is superb!
For now we bring you Donna in our latest #MondayMusic slot with her performance of Alan Jackson’s ‘Remember When’ (above), recorded Live at Slemish Sessions.
The ‘Jealous of the Angels Tour’ begins next week and Donna will be in the Alley Theatre, Strabane on Friday 15th September and the Burnavon Theatre, Cookstown, on Sunday 17th September in the initial stages of that in County Tyrone.
Donna’s distinctive emotional singing style has drawn comparisons with the likes of Eva Cassidy, Mary Black and Alison Krauss. Following her appearance on ‘The Late Late Show’ in October, 2016 the Irish people have taken Donna to their hearts.
Following her SOLD OUT Nationwide Tour and due to exceptional demand, Donna is delighted to announce extra special shows, including the Ulster Hall, Belfast on 7th October.
