Daniel O Donnell

It’s no surprise that Daniel O’Donnell is one of the best loved artistes of our time, both at home and abroad. He has had a remarkable career. He is the only artist in the world to score a hit in the UK album charts every year for the last 27 years. In doing so, he has outshone everyone from Michael Jackson and Madonna to U2 and the Rolling Stones. Daniel has also achieved eight number one hits in the UK music video/dvd charts over that period. He makes regular appearances in the Billboard World Music Chart and has been voted Entertainer Of The Year in Ireland three times - to mention but a few of the many accolades that Daniel has been awarded. And after more than 30 years in the spotlight as an engaging entertainer, he is still in love with performing and with audiences the world over.

Daniel has had the personal thrill of landing the coveted role as a contestant on one of his favourite TV shows, BBC TV’s top-rated Strictly Come Dancing“I am absolutely thrilled to get the chance to dance on Strictly,” Daniel says. “The offer came at the right time because I had taken time off from touring. It’s such a huge show and the BBC have their pick of people, so I’m flattered that they asked me. It’s taking me out of my comfort zone, but I’m going to have a lot of fun doing it.” 

Daniel is looking forward to returning to touring next year with a revamped band. "We're introducing some new musicians and some different instruments in the band because I think it's time for change and I'm really excited by what's to come." There is no doubt but that Daniel intends to continue touring around the globe with his unique, life affirming shows of music, song and laughter.
