VOICE OF IRELAND: Congratulations to Keith Hanley who got through the “Battle Stage” of the Voice of Ireland singing competition series on RTE last Sunday night. Keith’s mother is formerly Alice Gallahue of Anglesboro. The Community of Anglesboro was rooting for him. His mentor Jamelia complimented him by saying that there weren’t many male vocalists who could do what he does. Keith’s opposition was Niamh Armstrong, whose father was a famous Show Band Super Star Rob Strong. Her brother is Andrew who acted and sang in the famous box office hit film – the Commitments. The song chosen by Jamelia and her advisor Lemar for Keith and Niamh was “Beneath you’re beautiful” by Labyrinth and Emily Sandes. Jamelia agreed that it was a very difficult song to sing but she claimed that both were very capable vocalists and she was looking forward to hearing them perform. She advised Keith that if she was going to put him through, she would take him out of his comfort zone every week. Keith has two loves in life – one is singing and the other is his career in Early Childhood Care and Special Needs. He runs a dance hip hop children’s dancing class voluntarily for the children with special needs. He works in the Holy Family School in Charleville. Both performed excellently but Keith had the edge. Judge Brezzie said that it was the best performance he had heard all night and if he had Keith and Niamh on his team he would be very proud. The performance left Sharon Corr “almost in tears” and she noted that both voices complimented each other. Cian Egan former West Life Super Star said that it was the performance of the night and he “couldn’t call it”. Jamelia fought back the tears and chose Keith. The Gallahue family watching on were ecstatic. Keith was supported by many, but on camera were his mother Alice, his Granny Noreen and his sister. Well done Keith! All the local communities are already looking forward to the next stage of the competition.
