Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

Wicklow LiveIreland Member Gets Discovered!!

MyLiveIreland member, Rebecca Gresty and our music writer Bill Margeson recently made contact in our chat site. Rebecca had a demo of her voice up, and Bill heard it. He loved it! He and Rebecca made contact. Bill then asked for the four-cut demo in cd format, and this week played one of the cuts on his American Public Radio programme based out of Chicago! Bill loves her voice so much that he stated that he would play one cut a week! Here's the big payoff. Rebecca just won her first major singing Award in the Chicago Irish-American News annual, Top TIR Awards! She has been named the winner of the prestigious, Thunder on the Horizon Award !! The thousands and thousands of American readers of the paper will join the thousands of radio listeners in being introduced to a major new talent who debuted right here in MyLiveIreland!! Congrats to Rebecca!!

Why are none of your LI friends not surprised at this! I knew it when I first heard the demos, and said so. Remember? Irish Idol!!!!

Congrats. By the way, that little baby with the cute eyes is my grandson, Thomas Murphy Daub.
