2010 was a very exciting year for Emmet Cahill. He was awarded The John McCormack Bursary for the most Promising Young Tenor, was named the most promising young singer at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, was a multiple prizewinner at the National Feis Ceoil singing competition in Ireland and was approached by Celtic Thunder producer Sharon Browne and invited to join the show.

Emmet is 22 years old and hails from Mullingar in County Westmeath in Ireland. His musical journey began with a piano lesson when he was just 5 years old. By the time he turned 7 Emmet had begun to have his voice professionally trained and he later went on to win a music scholarship for high school in Mullingar. Emmet spent the next 5 years intensively studying and playing music. At school he furthered his studies in piano, organ, violin and vocal training, but singing was always his true choice. He continued his education at the prestigious Royal Irish Academy of Music where he received a university degree in Music Performance.

Emmet Cahill, who left the show in December to pursue a solo career, has graciously rescheduled other commitments to join the cruise with Keith, Ryan, Neil and Colm, to pay tribute to, and honor, their lost friend and colleague. “I am deeply saddened by the death of not only a colleague but a friend, and felt that it was only right to rejoin the guys on this momentous occasion, paying homage to a wonderful man.” In addition to performing in the Greatest Hits show alongside his former band mates, Emmet will also perform two solo shows and a duet show with Colm Keegan.
