Donna Taggart to headline fundraising Summer Concert

Wednesday May 17th 2017

Donna Taggart will headline a Michaela Foundation Fundraising concert at the iconic Hill of the O’Neill in Dungannon on Saturday 12th August. Donna’s performance will come at the end of Michaela Foundation’s busy Summer Camp season, during which they will have worked with over 400 volunteers and almost 1500 young girls. The fundraising concert will enable Michaela Foundation to continue supporting and inspiring young people in Ireland to lead a life without limits.

Speaking at the launch of the concert Donna said,

“It is my great honour to be invited by the Michaela Foundation to perform at the stunning Hill of the O’Neill Dungannon as part of the Music for a Summer’s Evening Concert.  I feel a very natural connection with Michaela Foundation and have great admiration for the work Michaela Foundation do in promoting the self-esteem, confidence and well-being of our young people.

I am delighted to be making my first appearance at the Hill of the O’Neill, Dungannon. I couldn’t believe that we had such a spectacular venue on our doorsteps in Co. Tyrone so our guests are in for a real treat.”

For this event Donna will be joined by the incredibly talented Mairéad Duffy who released her debut album in December 2016.  Special guest and current Michaela Foundation volunteer, Mairéad is equally as excited about the concert : ‘ I feel very privileged to be able to perform in aid of the Michaela Foundation. Having experienced first hand the positive impact the Michaela camps have on the campettes (the girls who participate in the camps), I am delighted that I can play my part in supporting this wonderful foundation in the great work that it does throughout the island of Ireland. And of course, to be opening for Donna Taggart  in a spectacular venue is without doubt an amazing opportunity!’

 

Úna Kelly, Operations Manager of Michaela Foundation said, Following Donna Taggart’s whirlwind global success with ‘Jealous of the Angels’, we are absolutely delighted to present Donna in concert this August in aid of Michaela Foundation. We’re also thrilled to have emerging singer/songwriter talent and treasured Ardboe Camp co-ordinator Mairéad Duffy perform on the night. I believe that both artists are fantastic role models for the young people we work with and that their music encompasses and celebrates much of our charity ethos.”

Music fans and friends of Michaela Foundation are invited to enjoy a Summer’s Evening in the company of Donna Taggart and Mairéad Duffy on the Hill of the O’Neill and support the work of Michaela Foundation.
