Corina hits Limerick!
Article from website

Corina Brouder, a beautiful, young American with roots in Limerick, who has performed in the White House, toured across Europe, and along with her family won Entertainer of the Year award in New York, is now back in Ireland promoting her new single, Feel For You.

The 25-year old auditioned for this year’s Waterford segment of the You’re A Star and many will have seen her, along with her harp, on the television programme.

She arrived in Ireland before Christmas from her home in Woodlawn, an Irish neighbourhood in the Bronx, just in time to take part in You’re A Star competition. Along with her sister Christina, she has moved to Ireland and is promoting her new single at venues all across the country.

The young lady whose maternal grandparents hail from Leitrim and Cavan, is proud of her Limerick connections - her family the Brouders, come from Athea, Co. Limerick - and says she is enjoying her time with them while she is in Ireland.

Corina recorded the single in the USA prior to travelling to Ireland. The ballad, Feel For You was written by Corina and her sister Cornelia, and recorded by Jo Hogue, a Grammy and Emmy Award winner.

The video of Feel For You was filmed in The Factory, Sligo, by Ciaran Carthy, a North West Radio DJ who Corina says has been very helpful in promoting her single.

The second song on the CD, Hugs & Kisses was written in honour of the father of a classmate and friend of the family, Billy Wick, who died in the World Trade Centre on September 11th. The song tells Billy’s story; of how he phoned his wife just after the first building was hit to let her know he was safe.

His last words to her were “hugs and kisses”. He tried to rescue other people in the disaster, but died in the attempts. The song was written by Corina and her mother Loretta in Billy’s memory.

Corina, an amazing singer who also plays piano and harp, has been performing for as long as she can remember. As a child, her sister spent some time in hospital, and Corina and her other siblings started entertaining her recovering sister and the other children in the ward.

As time went on the family found themselves travelling to children’s wards in the neighbouring hospitals and to nursing homes, and within time, they had come up with a name for their group and started gigging professionally.

Known as The Spirits of Gilbride, the family group of four sisters and one brother sing, play keyboards, violin, harp, guitar, drums, tin whistle, bagpipes and accordion.

The Spirits of Gilbride have had tremendous success, having performed at the White House, Radio City Music Hall, Disney World, the Trump Plaza, Waldorf, Lincoln Centre, Rideau Hall, Yankee Stadium and at concerts and festivals all across the US , as well as Dublin, London, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Munich and Vienna.

They have shared stages with the Chieftains, Hanson, Enrique Iglesias, Harlem Boys Choir, Gloria Gaynor, S Club 7, and many more. Concert dates have already been set for the Summer in Canada and throughout Ireland.

The family group received an “Entertainer of the Year” award from President Mary Robinson in the Plaza NY, and performed in Limerick for the Millennium Celebrations, as their Dad, Cornelius Brouder, hails from the county.

Their name, The Spirits of Gilbride, is in honour of their maternal grandfather. Corina explained: “When our grandfather died, there was no one to keep his family name going as he had no sons, so we decided to name the group after him”.

The group has released an album, two videos and singles for Universal Music, and had the title track on the Euro Little Vampire album. Corina was the vocalist on the Swept From the Sea soundtrack.
