Holy God! You’ll never guess who got a record deal!


Remember Fr. Ray Kelly, that priest who won the hearts of a nation after he sang a beautiful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ during a couple’s wedding ceremony?

Well, he’s after getting himself a record deal!

Universal Music Ireland have teamed up with the singing priest and he’s been busy writing and recording songs for his debut album, which is due to be released at Christmas.

He’s made sure his new musical lifestyle won’t get in the way of his religious duties though, as the record company have built him a studio in his parochial house on Co. Meath!

Maybe we could send him to the Eurovision next year, singing a rendition of ‘My Lovely Horse’. Sure it’d be a bit of a laugh at the very least!
