We wrote earlier in the week about Father Ray Kelly, a priest based in County Meath, who surprised two newlyweds Chris and Leah O’Kane with a personalised version of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah. Well, the video of him singing at their wedding has gone viral building from 150,000 views to over 8 million views in just three days.
Now an internet sensation, Father Ray Kelly is to appear on the Late Late Show to talk to Ryan Tubridy about his new celebrity status.
Our own readers have said:
"What a voice...", "what a treat!", "LOVE it!!!!", "Wow beautiful !!", "Fab!!!", "What a wonderful priest and that voice !!!!!! He should be on British Got Talent :-))))", " Gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes! Amazing!" and so on.....
