April 4On this date in 2014 a Catholic Priest in parochial Ireland, conducted one of many wedding ceremonies as he had done for 25 years of priesthood. He had previously told the couple Chris and Leah, that he may sing a little song for them, as he was prone to do on many other weddings...a little surprise. And so Fr Ray sang, the now famous Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah with words adapted to the occasion and personalized for the wedding couple...a little surprise!
Only this time, Fr Ray would be most surprised indeed.
Since Then...On our Biography page, the events that followed are outlined but needless to say Fr Ray's life changed a bit, we think. A contract with Universal Ireland and two recorded albums are just the highlights of the many appearances, voyages across the ocean, celebrations and concerts.
With our heartiest congratulations on this joyful anniversary, we wish Father Ray Kelly many more years of blessings and joy, health and happiness and, of course, singing and singing and singing!!!
