A book and an album. Updates!

Wow! The Book is out, Hallelujah!

In case you have not been keeping up with the Official Facebook Page, you have been missing out! Hallelujah, Fr Ray Kelly's Memoir is now available through Columba Books
Direct link:
https://columbabooks.com/product/hallelujah-memoirs-of-a-singing-priest/

Here is the description from the Columba Books website:
Fr Ray Kelly, ‘the singing priest’, became a worldwide internet sensation when a video of him singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ at a wedding in 2014 went viral. The emotional video and his wonderful voice captured hearts globally and garnered him millions of views.
In 2018 he auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, singing ‘Everybody Hurts’ by R.E.M., where he made it to the semi-finals of the show, demonstrating his astonishing ability to connect with people through his singing.
This is his memoir, describing his fascinating journey from parish priest to fame, and following his experience of sharing his exceptional talent with the world. Filled with stories of how music has always been a huge part of his world, from singing with his family as a child, to performing ‘Danny Boy’ for Pope John Paul II in the Vatican and forming a boy band in seminary school. Charting his childhood in Tyrrellspass, his call to the seminary and his work as a priest, the book culminates in Fr Kelly being catapulted into the limelight because of his extraordinary talent, and combining his passion for singing with his dedicated work as a priest.

New Album 2020

From the Padre's mouth, the next album has been recorded! Father Ray worked all summer and the album is being finalized with a tentative release early next year. All that work...two new songs, wonderful choir backing, a duet with niece Tara Kelly and of course the delightful voice of Father Ray. Can't wait! Won't be long now.

We leave you with pictures of Father Ray enjoying the release of the book Hallelujah, available through Columba Books.

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.
