Fazio

When I was told I would meet you, I searched for some information about you. You grew up in Ireland, which is one of the most wonderful places in the world. I found that, when you were a child, your parents and grandparents used to tell you fantastic stories about magic creatures and spirits. Here in Milan, parents tell their children about professional accountants and lawyers, (Eithne laughs) who sometimes are even sent to prison... The question is: Could you be born and write your music in Milan?!?

Enya

Definitely yes! Irish & Italian families are very similar to each other; they're very big families that share the same passion for arts, culture and music. So, my music could have been well written in Milan too.

Fabio

Thousands of e-mails have been sent to our programme, with sooo many questions for you. One of the most recurrent is: What have you felt singing "Adeste, Fideles"? What is the reason behind this choice?

Enya

When I work on a song, it has to be something thrilling and moving to me. Passion is what I put in my work, so that's why I chose "Adeste, Fideles".

Fabio

Next year you'll celebrate the 20th anniversary of your career. All the Italian fans ask: Why not celebrate this occasion with a live concert? Obviously in Italy!

Enya

This is something I would really like to do, and this occasion could be perfect.

Fabio

Will you invite me?

Enya

Of course! You'll be the first!

Fabio

These are the pros of working on TV! Thank you... You're nominated for two Grammies, you've already won three. You've won tons of other prizes. And you've recently been in Rockefeller Centre celebrating the Tree Lightning....

Enya

Yes, they asked me to go there and perform. The atmosphere was wonderful, the tree was 88 feet tall and there were 30,000 many lights on it! I really had a great time, it's like when we celebrate the New Year's Eve... all full of excitement.

Fabio

Enya, it may seems quite rhetorical, but all I want to tell you is "Thank You" for the magic emotion you gave us tonight.

Enya

You're very welcome.

Fabio

Thank you again, Enya, and we wish you a Merry Christmas.

Enya

Oh, Merry Christmas to you!

Fabio

Enya - Amarantine Christmas Edition (showing the album). Thank you!

Enya

Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you all!!!
