BIG Announcement! Third Album coming this year, YOU can be an Executive Producer!

More Music by Father Ray on the way! Become a part of it:

Here is a note from Father Ray:
It's nearly 5 years since my whole musical adventure began with the "Hallelujah" video in 2014. I've travelled the world and made so many friends because of my music.
I have recorded two albums, "Where I Belong" and "An Irish Christmas Blessing" that I'm hugely proud of.
Every time I play a concert people ask me when I am going to release some new music?
So I was thinking that the best way to commemorate the 5th Anniversary of my "Hallelujah" Day was to record a new album and to allow my friends to help me produce it.
As I don't currently have a record deal, I have decided to partner with Kickstarter to raise the money to fund the recording costs of my new album.
If you are one of the people who buys a copy of the CD upfront, you will have your name listed on the album credits and you have the satisfaction of knowing  will be helping me to record that album
The campaign will run for 60 days, so if you want to have your name on my album sleeve you need to order within that time.
As a special treat, I will be hosting a very special concert show to launch my album and a limited amount of tickets for that show will be available as part of this campaign.
I hope to see some of you at that concert or in my travels in 2019.

It's all over but the crying, Father Ray Kelly's message USA Tour 2018

From the Official Facebook Page

...and may we say, congratulations on well over 40 thousand likes!

After all the excitement, remember you can always listen to the wise words and prayers of Fr Ray at his parish, link on the sideline (hint: he sings Saturdays and Sundays!):

https://www.mcnmedia.tv/camera/st-brigids-church-oldcastle/


Here is Father Ray's message and the Facebook post with pics:

What can I say about the last 16 days I’ve spent in the US of A, except that they’ve been nothing short of wonderful.
Firstly, to the people who helped organise the concerts in Denver, Hamden, Memphis, Cleveland and San Antonio, places I’ve never sung in before, thank you. I’ve made so many new friends in all of these cities i have been truly blown away.
Secondly, to the people who organise the Greeley and South Shore Festivals thank you for asking me back.
And to the people of Toledo (Maury Collins that means you) who had me sing for them for the THIRD time, I enjoyed it even more than when I sang there first!
My next step is to get back to work in my parish but I am also making to plans to make a new album and then who knows.
To everyone who made the effort to come to one of the concerts a huge thank you too. 🙏🏻

Graceland! Is it Elvis? or is it Father Ray Kelly!

Just two more to go and Fr Ray gets a well deserved rest. First Memphis, then on to The Alamo for an appropriate last stand.
