I’m a little confused by the band name “Celtic Woman.” I mean, there’s more than one of them. Confusing name notwithstanding, they’ve got quite a bit of musical talent, well beyond the traditional Irish music for which they’re known.
In this video, they accompany the PS22 chorus group in a haunting rendition of “You Raise Me Up,” the classic Secret Garden hit, made famous by Josh Groban. The PS22 choir have become something of celebrities themselves over the years, and perennial Wimp favorites. For their incredible effort, these public school kids have gotten to perform with famous artists such as Carrie Underwood and Queen Latifah, and indie breakouts like Freelance Whales. Not too bad for grade schoolers.
