Eurovision Diva Niamh Kavanagh set to take Limerick Pride 2010 by storm

Written by Frank. Posted in Events

Iconic singer and Eurovision diva Niamh Kavanagh will top the bill at Limerick Pride.  The songstress will be playing an emotive and upbeat set at La Boutique in Dolans Warehouse on Saturday September 11th.

The gig will be the climax of a packed week of festivities ending in the Pride Parade and the gig in Dolans.

“We have a very exciting show this year for Limerick Pride,” said Producer Nicole Dunphy.  “It is amazing to have Niamh, but she will not be the only icon on stage, we also have Miss Heidi Hotlips and Sheila Fits Patrick and Madonna Lucia who have hosted the show since Limerick Pride went stellar three years ago.”

Described as the “Rolls Royce of Irish singers”, Niamh Kavanagh has appeared twice for Ireland at the Eurovision finals.

In the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest , before an international audience of over 350 million people, Niamh wowed audiences with a powerful rendition of In Your Eyes and achieved a resounding victory for Ireland. The second of Ireland’s famous three-in-a row victories, the song, In Your Eyes, went on to achieve double platinum status.

Niamh returned to the Eurovision stage in 2010 with the song It’s For You. An Irish/Swedish collaboration, the emotional ballad perfectly showcased her ability to tell a story through a song and Niamh took Ireland through a strong semi-final into the finals after a three year absence. It wasn’t to be Niamh’s year on the tele-voting, but her inspirational performance produced the only standing ovation of the night from the 18,000 crowd at the Telenor Centre in Oslo.

Renowned for the strength and adaptability of her voice; able to produce in turn the depth and resonance of jazz, the pure clarity of the ballad, the power of rhythm and blues and the driving energy of the very best of soul music, this is Niamh Kavanagh and “It’s For You”.
