Alison McGaley will launch her CD Alison Sings the Classics at the River Island Hotel on this Friday night, November 2nd from 9pm.
All Proceeds to Charity
All proceeds from the CD and launch night will go to the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus and the tickets are €10 each.
“I have been so overwhelmed by everyone from the whole community getting good wishes and support for this worthy cause,” Alison said.
A team of local and Kerry based performers have promised their support to Alison on her big night.
As a child she joined Bryan Carr’s School of Performing Arts in Tralee. It was there she caught the bug for all things musical.
Diploma in Musical Theatre
In 2014 at 18 years of age she received a Diploma in Musical Theatre accredited by The Irish Board of Speech and Drama.
“I then went on to study Music for three years in The Conservatory of Music in D.I.T. where I studied classical voice under Mairead Buicke.
“I like singing all types of music really, once it has a nice melody and it tells a story.
“Music I love to listen to includes: Peggy Lee, Cher, The Beatles, The Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and too many others to list.
A Singer for All Occasions
“I sing for weddings, civil ceremonies, funerals and any other events people would like me to sing for,” said Alison.
Alison has had lots of encouragement from many people and from a very young age. She includes everyone at Bryan Carr’s school; her teachers and friends from her days at Castleisland Community College.
She has a special mention for Canon Denis O’Mahony and Fr. Dan O’Riordan and last, but by no means least, her Nanna and all her family.
