Daniel O’Donnell is one of the most prolific and successful recording artists in the UK charts. The only artist in the world to score a hit in the UK album charts every year since 1988, an unprecedented and unbroken 34-year span, and in doing so, he has outshone everyone from Michael Jackson and Madonna, to U2 and the Rolling Stones.
Daniel has also achieved eight number one hits in the UK music video/DVD charts, makes regular appearances in the Billboard World Music Chart, received an honorary MBE from Queen Elizabeth, appeared on Top of the Pops, had his life celebrated on This Is Your Life, been given the Freedom of Donegal, has been inducted into Ireland’s Music Hall of Fame, and received multiple Entertainer of the Year/Person of the Year Awards in Ireland and the UK – to mention but a few of the many accolades.
Daniel burst into superstardom in the USA & Canada back in 2002 with his first ever PBS special – The Daniel O’Donnell Show. That began a special relationship between Daniel and PBS that has now lasted some 20 years and includes fifteen more recorded specials, the latest being ‘Daniel O’Donnell & Special Guests’ which is currently still airing on many PBS channels throughout the USA.
Daniel’s concerts around the world sell out on a regular basis and after more than 40 years in the spotlight, as an engaging entertainer, he is still in love with performing and with audiences the world over.
