2018 Father Ray Kelly USA Tour: First state unveiled!

Back to the cornfields...


First concert in the 2018 Father Ray Kelly USA Tour is (drumroll...)

Greeley Irish Festival in Greeley Nebraska  September 15 2018


We had a GRAND time with Father Ray Kelly in Greeley Nebraska last year! Awesome little town (and I mean little...), great accommodations, beautiful farm fields and deer...We had a storm, we had meals and laughs, we had a fantastic time and great beer in the Greeley Irish Festival. Thousands attending, all cheerful Irish folk from the surrounding communities, very welcoming to our favorite Irish priest. We sold out of Father Ray CDs in three hours!

If you go, plan early, nearby hotels are scant and fill quickly. Close to Greeley in Grand Island there is an airport with car rental, Greeley is a mere 30 miles away. Check the Greeley Irish Festival website for more information and all the details: http://greeleyirishfestival.com/

Stay tuned and subscribe to the Official YouTube Channel for more announcements on upcoming 2018 USA Father Ray Kelly Tour:

Recent Charity Concert

Last night Friday 22nd June I was special guest along with the fabulous Mary Byrne, The Kilmacud Crokes Choir, Mount Merrion Parish Choir, Kilmacud Parish Choir with soloist Joanne Harding at a major fundraising concert for Motor Neurons Disease research. The concert was hosted by the mighty Dancing Marty Morrissey of RTE. It was a sell out concert held at Kilmacud Church. Recently the Administrator of this Parish Very Rev Tony Coote Adm V F was diagnosed at the age of 51 with Motor Neurons Disease. As a result of his illness Fr Tony set up the charity WALK WHILE U CAN. It was an amazing night of entertainment and a real privilege to be invited to take part. PLEASE KEEP FR TONY IN YOUR PRAYERS. If you would like to support this worthwhile charity contact the email of the Parish kilmacudparish@eircom.net
In the photos you see Mary Byrne and myself and Fr Tony and me.

Message from Father Ray Kelly

A post BGT 2018 Message:


From the Official Facebook Page


And in case you don't "Facebook":

Father Ray Kelly is feeling blessed.
Thank you so much for all the messages of support I've had since last night's semi-final. I am feeling fine.
I have been pondering Simon Cowell’s comments from the show when he was talking about the very positive feedback he had received to my singing "Everybody Hurts"
I can only say that for myself, the messages and emails I have received from strangers who, in their despair, have been touched by my singing and have found hope has been extraordinary.
That indeed is the greatest positive of all about my Britain's Got Talentjourney. To touch people's lives with my singing is indeed a privilege in my ministry. To make a difference through a talent I enjoy so much is a very special bonus.
I have been truly blessed. The whole experience of BGT has been amazing, and it is something I shall never forget.
A BIG THANK YOU to all the Britain's Got Talent team and a thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to vote for me. God willing, my singing journey carries on!
Fr Ray

Not a Dry Eye in the House! (or the BGT Audience) Father Ray Kelly Sings Go Rest High

Fr Ray Wows AGAIN!

With a glowing blue light behind him, a glorious choir backup and the blissful background of beautiful stained glass classical church windows, Father Ray Kelly brought tears to the BGT 2018 audience who could barely wait until the end to clamor and clap.
Fr Ray's rendition of Vince Gill's "Go Rest High" was so full of emotion that we're sure there was no dry eye in the house when he finished. Amazingly emotional, this song is always dedicated to Fr Ray's sister Regina who is now resting high after battling cancer. Fr Ray Kelly himself was emotional after the song and his voice resonated high against the choir background. A truly amazing performance!

The semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent 

...are done and here is the official BGT video of Father Ray's audition, we hope the UK voted!!!

And here is a clip of the show with preview of Father Ray Kelly's performance and the clamorous aftermath:
