Niamh Kavanagh is best known for her Eurovision successes, representing her country twice and winning for Ireland in 1993 with her song ‘In your eyes’.  She has also recorded many albums and collaborations, in particular lending her vocals to one of the best selling soundtrack albums of all time, The Commitments.

  

Recently Eurovision fans will have enjoyed Niamh’s appearance in Rotterdam when took part in special TV recordings ahead of Eurovision 2021 in the Netherlands. TV audiences have also recently followed her winning participation in the popular schow, Celebrity Masterchef, and remains a returning judge on Junior Eurovision. 

Previously, Niamh starred in the highly successful Irish tour of Menopause the Musical, as part of a four woman cast. She also starred as the Evil Queen in a multi-year run of the highly successful Tivoli Christmas Panto in Dublin. Niamh’s performance was described by reviewers as a ‘show-stealer’.

We are excited to welcome Niamh to the EuroStarz stage as she retains a life-long love of live performance - her vocal talent and legendary audience rapport means she is equally at home holding court in crowded arenas as she is in intimate music venues, such as The Water Rats, home of EuroStarz.

 

She continues to tour and develop new shows including Date Night, a retrospective of her extensive career which was initially developed to mark the 25th anniversary of her Eurovision win.

In your eyes

Showing no emotion, my feelings locked inside
I made myself an island, trying to take my heart and hide
I built a wall around me, afraid of letting go
But suddenly an open door I never saw before

In your eyes (Your eyes)
I see the light leading me home again
It’s heaven in your arms, my love
My heart is in your hands (Heaven in your arms)

 

In your eyes (Your eyes)
Seems so right, I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again (In your eyes)

 

Love’s been building bridges between your heart and mine
I’m safe here on my island, but I’m out on the edge this time
I built a wall around me, thought I’d save myself the pain
Your touch swept me away, now I’ll never play it safe again

 

In your eyes (Your eyes)
I see the light leading me home again
It’s heaven in your arms, my love
My heart is in your hands (Heaven in your arms)

 

In your eyes (Your eyes)
Seems so right, I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again

 

I’ve never been this close
How do I know love will survive?
I’m walking a tightrope
Here, in your arms, I’m alive

 

I’m in your eyes (Your eyes)
I see the light, I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again

 

I’m in your eyes (In your eyes)
(I see the light leading me home again)
I see the light, I see the light
(It’s heaven in your arms, my love)
(My heart is in your hands) Whoa…

 

(In your eyes, feels so right)
I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again
When I look in your eyes
