Los Angeles, October 27, 2016 — Irish singer and actor Damian McGinty, star of Glee and Celtic Thunder, made instant waves in the music world this month with his chart-topping first full-length album, which entered the Billboard charts at #2 on the World Record chart and #2 on the records chart. It is currently #6 on Heatseekers on Billboard. Damian McGinty: This Christmas Time quickly moved up the iTunes charts upon its October 14, 2016, release, to become the #1 Holiday Album in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, as well as entering the coveted Top 50 list of all albums sold. This Christmas Time also hit #1 at the Amazon Holiday Best Sellers list. Several of the individual songs from the album charted as well; Damian’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah" hit #1 in the iTunes Holiday Songs list.
On this CD, Damian’s smooth, deep and rich voice brings alive eight traditional Christmas favorites including “Silent Night” complete with a verse in Gaelic, and Happy Xmas (War Is Over), as well as two originals written by Damian & co-writer Tom Harrison, “Will You Dance With Me (This Christmas Time)” & “Irish Christmas.”
