The acclaimed voice of Derry born Patrick O’Hagan lives on, thanks to delightful recordings as heard in this collection of Irish evergreens, selected from the most requested songs from his Ireland and Australian television shows.. The warmth, sincerity and lilting Irish tenor charm that Patrick exudes guarantees to lift the spirits. Patrick was honoured to perform for three different US presidents at The White House; John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon. One of Patrick’s sons, singer/songwriter Johnny Logan (born Sean Patrick Michael O’Hagan), is the only performer to have won Eurovision twice, in 1980 and 1982.
