Hi all! I've been a HUGE CT tagahanga for quite some time now and I've been needing new ways of expressing it..so, I'm venting all my adoration for them through fanfictions! :D This particular one is about Keith Harkin, so I hope you all enjoy it! Please tell me what you think!!! Thankies and much pag-ibig to each of you Thunderheads! ;]
How could this be? Chloe Moore sat in the corner of her bedroom, warm tears gently flowing down her naturally rosy cheeks. She turned the lights off, listening intently to the heavy raindrops tapping on the roof...

OK, the last few days have been a roller coaster for me - honestly!
I find this fantastic group and enjoy their music immensely. I've played You Tube all araw and still want more! Then, we visiting their website to find out if they intend to visit us in the UK (London, Norwich, Birmingham etc), I find George died tragically last year, I'm in tears - what a man and singer he was - so sad now. But the website still doesn't answer my tanong - When will Celtic Thunder come to Britain please?
Over a taon nakaraan Sharon stated she was working on it but nothing since, why are we waiting I ask?
Have the group Nawawala their puso when they Nawawala George? Do they sing with the same ol' Irish heart? Have they taken on soooo many new songs, that the old Celtish music is being pushed aside. I do hope not.
The best of their music lifted my puso and made me sing, when no other has done before. Please. Someone. Answer me!
I see there is lots of speculation on the auditions coming up in Ireland. So, I'll give a little madami information here.
Basically we have done a deal to release the original "Celtic Thunder - The Show" in Europe, Asia and Africa.

As a result we will have to tour that original ipakita as it will be a couple of years before the releases in those territories catch up to "It's Entertainment".

These territories want tours of the "Celtic Thunder - The Show" that we toured here in 2008.
I'm sure all the CT fans here would be less than impressed with us disappearing from North America entirely to break...

Overture and beginners please... Strike up the band... Stand sa pamamagitan ng for Celtic Thunder... and "It's Entertainment."

This stylish and high energy trip through some of the great songs of the last 30years is pure showbiz! It is a tribute from Celtic Thunder to the legacy they have inherited from the great entertainers of the past, and a mark of how far they themselves have travelled as performers, in a few short years.

It evokes an era of big bands and boulevards, tuktok hats and tails and pag-awit and dancin' in the rain! It makes for irresistible listening as the principals from this generation pay their...

“Wow, Keith, this tabing-dagat is stunning. I can see why your dad chose here to buy a timeshare.” “You like it?” Keith looked back at her, grinning uncontrollably. “How could I NOT like it? It’s the prettiest tabing-dagat I’ve ever seen in Cali.” “Yeah, I pag-ibig it a whole lot. The waves are perfect for us surfers, too.” He gazed out at the horizon, taking in the view and sound of it all. Chloe was looking around for the tabing-dagat house, but couldn’t find it. “Um, Keith? Where exactly is the tabing-dagat house?” Keith looked...

Hello everyone,

I have been meaning to post something for the past few weeks regarding 'Storm', but am just now getting around to it. First off, let me just preface this sa pamamagitan ng saying that I am totally delight that Deirdre Shannon has joined the team! I don't know how many of you are familiar with the lovely Deirdre, but she is a very accomplished musician within her own right. Deirdre is a classically trained crossover artist who comes with a listahan of credits that you may find amazing. Her prior background includes pag-awit with such groups as Anuna, Celtic Woman, The Celtic Tenors and the Canadian...

Sorry I took so long to post this part! Been kinda busy lately. Hope you enjoy! Thankies for reading!
Two weeks flew sa pamamagitan ng very quickly, and excitement stirred within Keith and Chloe. They spent time looking for houses for Chloe, packing Chloe’s ornaments and pictures, moving out the furniture, and, of course, spent time with each other in the parks, beaches, and even outdoor malls. Chloe was so happy that she grew so much closer to Keith during the two weeks she had left in LA, and Keith was happy he had Chloe all to himself for those two weeks....

Thanks y'all bunches for reading. Here's madami :]
It was one of the groggiest and restless nights of her life, and Chloe was not happy it ended, because the new araw just meant new time to mourn internally throughout the entire day. Admittedly though, she was a bit anxious to see cheery and jovial Keith once again. Somehow, being around such a good friend made her puso feel intact and whole, despite the way it was when she wasn’t around him. She got dressed and prepped herself for the day, then tiptoed out of her room to see whether or not Keith...

It was dark outside, the moonlight glistening off the thick foliage and bulaklak around the outside of Keith’s home. Ryan parked up in the already filled driveway, and popped up the trunk so he and Keith could grab the luggage. “We’re here, Chlo!” Both Keith and Ryan screamed out with joy simultaneously. Keith opened Chloe’s car door for her, helping her get out. “Thanks, fellas, for that exciting statement of obviousness.” They chuckled, “No problem, Chlo,” Keith nudged her, “ Just making sure you’re not overwhelmed yet sa pamamagitan ng Ireland.” “Me, overwhelmed sa pamamagitan ng Ireland?! HA!...

I took all the silly little words we use, made official sounding definitions for them, and put them in alphabetical order. There are only ones in here that have been used before, which is why there is no term for George fans, tell me if you know one. I hope it makes you laugh! If you think some of the definitions are wrong, tell me, please!

Baby Braces~ A term of endearment referring to Damian McGinty. Not an extremely well known term. It originated from musikluver94.
By the Busses~ If one is not able to obtain meet and greet passes, they must wait outdoors near link enduring the weather for...

There still seems a lot of misunderstanding about the auditions. Aside from my earlier explanation, I should probably point out that we auditioned the 5 guys for Celtic Thunder in February 2007 for the tours you first went to in October 2008.

It takes time and effort to find talented singers, it's not something you can just do overnight.

We discussed doing this last year, while we were out on tour actually. Phil and I have just been too busy to even get started on it. This is the first stage in a process to find talented singers.

It's not yet relevant. The first releases haven't even been...

October 1, 2008 When it comes to Celtic Thunder, producer Sharon Browne and songwriter/composer Phil Coulter have captured lightning in a bottle. Their year-old male vocal group's self-titled debut CD premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard World Music chart and millions of people have already seen the ensemble perform via PBS and DVD.
Now, hot on the heels of their segundo album, "Celtic Thunder: Act Two," which was released Sept. 16, the quintet is preparing for a 48-city U.S. konsiyerto tour, which kicks off Oct. 3 in Binghamton, N.Y., and wraps up in Chicago on Dec. 17.

Headlining the ipakita are...

Celtic Thunder is one of the most talented groups in the world. Their members range from age 16 to 40 and they bring a variety of voices into their act. Damian McGinty was only 14 years old when Celtic Thunder recorded all of the songs for the live ipakita and now at 16 he has a voice which sounds well madami experienced than a teenager. The romantic rebel of the group Ryan Kelly is now 30 years old and brings character and exitment into the group. A professional actor, he knows how to work the crowd with his firey romance scenes. A kid at heart, 40-year-old George Donaldson brings a peacefulness...

My name is Victoria. My family came from Ireland and Scotland so long nakaraan it's almost silly to say we are "from there." But... when I hear Celtic Thunder, both as a group and as individual singers, I can honestly say that something very deep stirs as if the music were already familiar to my puso and soul. I bought the CD and DVD not knowing that it would also make a difference to my family and my students in my classes. I played the CD hoping at least one student would learn to like some other music besides something that was screaming loudly in their ears. Well, as the voices started and...

The newly recorded Celtic Thunder pasko record features 14 all time pasko favorites done Celtic Thunder style and includes "Winter Wonderland" "Let It Snow" " Silent Night" "All I Want For pasko Is You" and more. Celtic Thunder has been the number one music ipakita on PBS for six consecutive pledge periods. This December in addition to It's Entertainment PBS will air and pledge a brand new Celtic Thunder ipakita that will include songs from the new pasko release. Look for the Celtic Thunder - It's Entertainment pasko version to air over 500 times during the 2010 holiday season....

I first saw Celtic Thunder one evening in December. Before the show, I spent $15 for a beautiful program. At intermission, I spent $10 each for posters of Ryan and Paul. After the show, I spent $10 and $15 for a Keith poster and a group poster. Ryan now presides in pride of place over my bed, with Paul on his right and Keith on the other pader to his left. The group poster is susunod to Keith. Later, I bought the cds. Keith's lullaby voice pag-awit "The Island", Ryan's velvet voice pag-awit "Brothers in Arms", and all of them pag-awit "Danny Boy" and "Steal Away" now lull me to sleep every night.
Just thought I'd let people know...
I have climbed highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you
I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like a fire
This burning desire

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the mga kulay will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes I'm still running

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Oh my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for
