Enniskerry superstar and lifelong Liverpool fan Chris de Burgh performed at a gala dinner for Steven Gerrard's testimonial at the weekend.
Guests at the dinner were treated to a champagne reception and three course dinner in the company of Gerrard as well as entertainment with the 'Don't Pay the Ferryman' crooner.
1,000 guests paid £2,000 per table to attend the dinner in Liverpool, with all proceeds going towards the Steven Gerrard Foundation, which funds various children's organisations and projects across Merseyside.
The Liverpool and England Captain's testimonial match vs Olympiakos took place at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
Olympiakos donated their match fee to charity.
It is understood that Chris de Burgh's performance at the event was by specific request of Steven Gerrard.
