Music Review: Celtic Woman: Believe: Live

I watched the DVD version of Celtic Woman, "Believe."  This album features Mairead Nesbitt on violin.  She is the original dancing violinist.  As vocal soloist, and also performing trio and duets are: Chloe Agnew, Lisa Kelly and Lisa Lambe (in her first Celtic Woman performance).  This performance really hit its stride after about half way through the sang a tribute to Broadway.  The were perfect together in "I Dreamed a Dream" and followed this with "The Circle of Life."  "You'll Never Walk Alone" is another song all four women perform together and it sounds beautiful.  Chloe performs a show stopper Ave Maria.  The women all come together for "Smile."  This song is haunting as the women start a 'Capella and then are joined by violin only. 

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you'll get by.
If you smile with your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you.
