Enya to Compose For The New Harry Potter Movie?

 The discussion  is spreading like wildfire in the internet. Enya, the best selling Irish singer/composer is said to contribute "Through the Darkness" for the new Happy Potter film. I am not really an HP fan(I love Tolkien) but if this is true, then I might be swayed to watch. We have to remember that she composed 'May it Be' for Lord of the Rings and I think it is only fitting that she'll do Happy Potter.

  Enyanomics is a term for the Enya phenomena. After all, who in  the history of music was able to do what she's done-sell more than 80,000,000 albums worldwide without touring an keeping her affairs private.

  Enya introduced Irish music to the world the way U2 did. And she did it in her own terms. Without her, I would not have known Clannad, Altan and the rest of the Irish talents I now listen to.Enya is a trio composed of her, Roma Ryan the lyricist and Nick Ryan the producer. Nicky used to work with folk and rock bands (The Boomtown Rats, Planxty, Clannad) before concentrating on the Enya project. Enya also used to perform with her siblings with the legendary Irish band Clannad in keyboards,percussion and  contributing vocals along with Moya. Roma is an artist/poet in her own right and has published a book "Water Shows the Hidden Heart". She also made the fictional language called Loxian (Amarantine album) after being inspired by Tolkien's work.

Enya composing for Harry Potter sounds great! :-)))

I've been a fan for about 20 years, and her music made me discover my passion for Ireland, Irish music and history. And whenever I feel stressed or frustrated, her music calms me down and make me feel happier.

Thank you, Enya. :-)
