Enya to star in Japanese Christmas TV special

Source: (Ireland) (December 3, 2007)

Enya filmed an Irish-themed Christmas special for Japanese television network NTV in Dublin's Christchurch Cathedral today.

NTV's Happy Christmas Show is one of the biggest festive-season specials in Japan and an extensive crew from the network travelled to Dublin to film the singer's appearance.

Enya performed the seasonal favourite 'Adeste Fideles' as well as one of her most popular songs, 'Only Time'. She then gave a rare interview to noted Japanese actress and journalist Norika Fujiwara and presented her with a symbolic Irish gift of Waterford Crystal.

This is not the first time Enya has appeared on the Happy Chistmas Show - in 2005, she sang at Kyoto's Shimogamo Jinja shrine. This year, NTV have based the entire programme around an 'Irish Christmas' theme, to show the traditions of Christmas celebration here to a Japanese audience.

The show will be broadcast in Japan on December 23.
