Celtic Woman is the eponymous debut album of the singing group Celtic Woman. The members of the group were first featured on the PBS musical special also by the same name. With the help of said special, Celtic Woman reached #1 on the World Music charts within weeks and remained there for a record 68 weeks. The astonishing success led the group's musical director, David Downes, to adopt the title 'Celtic Woman' as their permanent name. Since then, Celtic Woman have toured the United States and Japan. The album was performed by vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, Órla Fallon, and violinist Máiréad Nesbitt. The album was certified Gold in August 2005 (for sales of 500,000), and Platinum in December 2006 (for sales of 1,000,000), by the RIAA.
