Currently trending at No.2 in the Irish iTunes Christmas chart and No.18 in the overall Irish iTunes chart, GMIT Voices & The GMIT Student choir with special guests Scoil íde children’s choir, are at present riding high and full of Christmas spirit with their fantastic cover of Home Alone’s “Somewhere In My Memory”.
After releasing the charity single in aid of Galway Hospice just last week, the college choirs are said to be thrilled with its recent success and are hoping to maintain their top 20 place over Christmas. They have even set their sights on knocking Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas from the top spot in the Irish Christmas chart.
“We had no idea this could happen and are delighted. GMIT Voices (the staff choir) & The GMIT Student Choir only formed in February & September of this year respectively and what started out as a Christmas project uniting the two college choirs has become so much more” said Sean Rowland, director of the two choirs.
The choirs reached out to the talented Scoil íde children’s choir, Salthill, to join them on the live recording which took place in GMIT and also decided to offer all proceeds to Galway Hospice – over €1000 raised so far.
“We wanted to reach out to the community and spread some Christmas joy. Getting a top 20 and a number 2 (so far) in the iTunes chart is the icing on the Christmas cake and we just want to thank everyone for their support” concluded Sean.
