‘You Raise Me Up’—Celticwoman




How are you spending your time on this Sunday morning? I suppose most of the students from Information Sciences are still enjyoing their long summer holiday. On a daily basis, I often devote myself to deep thinking of how to structure the fifteen lectures in the second half term. After reading the reports from the students at the Faculty of Information Sciences, I have found that the English song sessions in my lectures are well-received, and I have decided to continue the sessions in the second half term.

As for today’s piece of music by ‘Celticwoman’, ‘You Raise Me Up’ was once very poplular and is quite well-known in Japanese market. On 31 December last year, the five Irish women of Celticwoman sang in front of Toohuku-ji in Kyoto which was broadcast live on national TV in Japan. Perhpas you may remember the programme. The video clip on YouTube comes with English lyrics, and you can sing along while viewing it! Singing this song with Karaoke can be rather tough as the sound rage of this song is quite broad. Very demanding piece of music for singing on Karaoka, but it is worth a try!
