The affable and unassuming international singing star Daniel O’Donnell, one of Ireland’s best known performers from Australia to Alaska, continues to push out the boundaries of his career both on stage and TV in 2018 and 19.
Daniel’s remarkable career has moved on to a new level with his success as a TV presenter, just another facet to his ever expanding list of entertainment achievements.
He is the only artist in the world to score a hit in the UK album charts every year since 1988, an unprecedented and unbroken 30 year span and in doing so, he has outshone everyone from Michael Jackson and Madonna to U2 and the Rolling Stones. In 2016, “The Best of Music And Memories”, released in February charted on the UK midweek chart at No. 7, the third highest new entry on that weeks’ UK Artist Albums Chart.
Across the ocean in the USA, where Daniel has a loyal and ever increasing following, he is winning awards too. His most recent award was in Dakota USA where he has been inducted into the Scandinavian-America Hall of Fame for the Humanitarian Award. Recent notable inductees into the Hall of Fame include Kris Kristofferson and Hollywood actor Josh Duhamel.
His ‘White Christmas’ spectacular show, staged in the iconic and luxurious Dublin Convention Centre, Dublin in December 2016, sold out in 20 minutes and a third show added sold out in less than two days. The show was a festive celebration of Christmas standards from the man himself and his very special guests, including long-time singing partner, Mary Duff. The show was recorded by RTE 1 Television and aired on Christmas Eve night 2016. It was later released on a CD/DVD pack in 2017 and reached no 19 in the UK pop charts.
Daniel is now taking this spectacular show to Branson, USA where he will be performing for the month of November 2018 at The Welk Theatre. It is a big show production with some sensational Christmas scene sets, choirs and of course, the beautiful Mary Duff and the music of Daniel’s very talented band.
There is no doubt but that Daniel intends to continue touring around the globe with his unique, life affirming shows of music, song and laughter, for a long time to come.
“While it is nice to make new inroads in different areas, it is still most important to me to continue to enjoy a loyal following in the other places I have been performing during my life since I embarked on this wonderful journey… the success, I owe it all to you. A sincere thank you to everyone who makes it possible for me to live this dream and I hope our paths will cross along the way somewhere around the world”.
