Gloria found her greatest success in the late 1970s with her version of the famous gospel song, which reached No. 1 in the Irish charts. To this day it is the longest running song in Irish chart history, staying there for an incredible 90 weeks. Now for the first time, it is to be re-recorded with the Monaghan Gospel Choir.
The launch will take place tonight, Thursday the 7th of Marth, in the form of a concert with Gloria, featuring the adults and junior leaders of the choir. The Hillgrove Hotel is the perfect venue, with four to five hundred attendees expected, it’s guaranteed to be a atmospheric event. Host for the evening will be Shannonside Northern Sound’s own Joe Finnegan.
The single will be released on itunes tomorrow, Friday 8th of March.
Tickets for the event are €10, and are available from the Hillgrove reception, or directly from choir members.
