JANUARY, 30th: SCHOOL'S PEACE DAY. DECLAN GALBRAITH "TELL ME WHY"




On January 30th, School's Peace Day is commemorated. This year as it's Saturday, it'll be celebrated on Friday 29th. The teachers at our school library will be reading and listening to texts, poems & songs related to peace awareness. One of the songs they've chosen is by Declan Galbraith "TELL ME WHY". I include below the video of the song with English lyrics & Spanish subtitles and some information about this young artist.
Declan John Galbraith (born 19 December 1991, Hoo St Werburgh, Kent) is an English singer of Irish and Scottish origin. He and his family are now living in South East England. His grandfather was in a band, played several instruments, and took Declan to Fleadhs (concerts) he was participating in, and the mix of Scottish and Irish musical traditions inspired Declan and became his early musical influence.
When 7 years old he insisted on singing spontaneously at the annual Rochester Dickens Festival, a two-day event where people were invited to dress up in Victorian costumes to celebrate the life and times of the famous author Charles Dickens and his links with their town. Little Declan, dressed up as a chimney sweep, started singing. Soon after this he started to enter local talent contests and within a year he had won 15 titles and more than £1,000.
As a result of his success in the talent shows, the major recording companies soon heard about Declan and he was signed to his first recording contract in England. His first recording was ‘Walking in the Air’, which was released on a special Christmas Hits album, also featuring Westlife, Elton John and Elvis Presley. Declan loves to sing to live audiences and among some of performances included the Queen’s Jubilee at St Paul’s Cathedral, when he sang ‘Amazing Grace’ accompanied by the St Paul’s Choir and singing in front of more than 22,000 people at an Elton John concert.
His first self-titled album, Declan, with Irish traditional songs and some specially written material became charted in the U.K. and Ireland. Within the year of release it had 200,000 copies in Germany.
