Home For Christmas / Re: I finally watched Home For Christmas the Blu-ray
« Last post by rfcw on December 05, 2019, 12:18:58 PM »
Yes of course Susan was a grand lead presence on Destiny and her confidence never left away her on Homecoming. She even stood out now filling in Mairead for a few Shows on The Ancient Land Tour!

For Susan to stood out strong on HFC is what you expect with authentic Susan. The fact that Susan originally took the place that was Chloe to be idk because Chloe, Lisa L & Meav were the CD. Chloe's presence had she been on HFC would been stand out aside Meav's stand out voice of course! Santa Clause Is Coming to Town was Chloe's solo on the CD and it be certain Chloe's 2nd solo would been Adele Festes on the DVD just like the CD it's quite possible she could got It Came Upon a Midnight Clear but the powerhouse belt by Susan fits for Her so perfectly!*

Home For Christmas / I finally watched Home For Christmas the Blu-ray
« Last post by VegasDavid on December 04, 2019, 01:13:52 AM »
Now that it's Christmas season, I've been setting up Christmas decorations and finally getting around to watching my two Celtic Woman Christmas videos discs!

Last night I watched the the Home for Christmas Blu-ray.  I haven't seen the DVD, but the Blu-ray looks so spectacular thanks to the high resolution of the Blu-ray format and the effort that Celtic Woman put into decorations (e.g. the audience tables that sometimes light up in different colors).

One of the main things that surprised me was how much Susan McFadden stood out, almost as if she were the star of the show.  In contrast to the Destiny and Homecoming productions, she totally owns the Home For Christmas disc!  Her two solos were the the most fun solos on the disc by far.  In Santa Claus is Coming to Town, I love how she sits at tables with the audience and sings to them.  Susan's second solo was It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, which was awesome because of the gospel choir that sang behind her.  On top of that, Susan's entrance into the group song O Tannenbaum gave me a strong dose of positive emotion because she was the third person to sing, and the first person singing in English.

You just can't compete with Susan's awesomeness if your solos are somber songs like I'll Be Home For Christmas, Auld Lang Syne, and Silent Night.

I go to so many fancy live concerts these days, but sometimes it's better to just stay in, grab a drink, turn on the Christmas tree, and watch a Celtic Woman disc.

So many!

I love the idea of Into The West, but I think it'd be better as a Megan solo.

I also loved the suggestions of Wild Mountain Thyme, Raglan Road, Star Of The County Down, My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose, Fields Of Athenry, and The Town I Loved So Well. So many great Irish songs. I would also include The Holy Ground, The Green Fields Of France, and even Buachaill Ón Eirne.

And a couple of the more up-tempo ones too! Like Rocky Road To Dublin, Marie's Wedding, or even Whiskey In The Jar!

I would love the girls to sing Bette Midler's The Rose as a group song, maybe even a cappella.

And have the three singers come together for a close harmony of Hallelujah.... *chills*

I would also love some more Disney songs! They used to perform them all the time! The girls could come together for an a cappella rendition of A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes! Tara could perform a lovely version of Once Upon A Dream on violin with the orchestra or she could revisit How Does A Moment Last Forever. Mairead or Megan could sing a beautiful version of Go The Distance. They could revisit Someday as a duet between Eabha and Megan (seeing as the song is a duet in the Broadway version).

And of course, some songs from musical theatre! The remake of Over The Rainbow was stunning! They could have Mairead sing Climb Ev'ry Mountain or have Eabha and Mairead duet on Edelweiss. Megan could sing Memory seeing as I loved Lea Salonga's version! I would probably die if Gavin rearranged Somewhere as a duet between Mairead and Megan, like Over The Rainbow from Ancient Land. Ooh! Or perhaps Tomorrow as an a cappella number? Or On My Own, sung by Megan or Mairead. And who wouldn't love the singers doing a lovely rendition of Good Morning?

Anyway! Sorry! I got a little carried away! And I have more suggestions too! Lol

Of course Gregg and I are going to this one! We live in the suburbs of Minneapolis. We bought our front row seats the moment they went on pre-sale this morning, having just found out about the show late last night.

Anybody with the means to travel - I highly recommend this one. Minneapolis crowds are insanely awesome! So much so that this one gets a special announcement separate from the rest of the tour! I'm guessing they'll announce this at the Prior Lake MN show next week, which is another Minneapolis suburb.

The moment I saw the free Friday in between Omaha and Appleton, I called it that this day would be a Minneapolis show. Yes!!!
