Do you know Danny Boy?

Danny Boy is an ancient Irish melody ballad that has become the epitome of the country’s culture. Although the author is British, this music product is associated with Irish communities.

The song’s content is a story about a woman sending her son off to the battlefield. However, it has been sung on various occasions, from cheerful bars to overcast funerals.

Queen of All Saints Academy held a fundraising concert on its campus in Brooksville, Florida, featuring a stunning performance from 5-year-old Sarah. A video of the concert went viral and was enthusiastically supported by the audience.

Impressive music repertoire

Although Danny Boy is not a children’s song, with very high notes, Sarah sang very well. Her performance captured the emotional content of the lyrics.

A small group of violinists, violists, and cellists and a choir of her peers accompanied the kindergartener.

After her impressive performance, Sarah also had another meaningful act. She said she would offer up the money in her piggy bank toward the construction of her new school.


Sarah’s enchanting version of “Danny Boy,” along with her compassion, warmed the audience’s hearts. 

“The little girl sounded like an angel singing! What a divine experience! God bless!” a person commented.

“It was such a wonderful experience to hear this soprano opera angel voice in a little girl’s body. The choir is equally wonderful,” another commentator said.

Others also had positive reactions.

“If we can only imitate the simplicity, honesty, and purity of these little ones what a beautiful world this would be. I thought I was already in heaven listening to them.” 

“I have always thought this to be very beautiful and melodic, but when I finally listened to the lyrics many years later it brought tears to my eyes and still does. It is now a haunting melody.”

Such a beautiful memory in Sarah’s life when she gave her first stage performance and achieved such good results.
