In just one week Donna Taggart’s Single “Jealous of the Angels” went viral and it sent her album straight to No. 1 on the Billboard World Music Catalogue Charts.
The song reached No.1 in the iTunes USA Easy Listening Chart along with 7 other countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Netherlands, Ireland and the UK. It entered the US Top Downloaded Tracks at No. 43 alongside Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West et al on iTunes.
The Omagh–born viral sensation began singing when she was 22.
It started by accident when a friend asked her to sing at a funeral. She has been singing and recording songs ever since.
Donna first came to prominence in 2011 when her acclaimed debut album Celtic Lady Vol. 1was picked up by highly respected BBC Radio Ulster presenter Gerry Anderson. A second album followed in 2013 (Celtic Lady Vol.2).
This led to TV appearances alongside the cream of musical talent in Ireland including Nathan Carter, and Special Guest to Phil Coulter on his tour last year.
Donna kicks off her Nationwide tour this month. Tickets are on sale now.
