Sean Olohan Composes Song for Incoming President of Lions International

A song for life and a performance of a lifetime these are just two wonderful opportunities for song writer musician and IMRO member Sean Olohan from Wicklow town.

Sean was commissioned to compose a new song for the incoming President of Lions International when he was a member of the jury for the ‘Sounds from the Heart’ Lions World Song Contest in Krakow Poland last November.

He got to work on this special song straight away and then spent time in the studio recording the finished work which will be featured on the President’s official video and viewed by over 1.5 million members of the Lions worldwide.

The incoming Lions President of the World is Ms Gudrun Yngvadottir from Iceland and as soon as she heard Sean’s song she was thrilled with it immediately .

The title of the song is ‘Sing with the Lions –Sing out with Pride’. As soon as the song was heard by people in the headquarters in America they invited Sean to sing it live at the World Lions Convention in Las Vegas-no less! After getting over the initial shock of such a high profile performance Sean quickly started rehearsing for the biggest and most exciting performance of his life.    He will sing to 20,000 people from 120 countries visiting Vegas for the Convention. He will be joined on stage by his wife Jackie as Musical Director.

Sean feels extremely honoured to be representing Ireland but even more importantly is very proud to be representing his own Wicklow and District Lions Club of which he is a very active member.

As well as Sean performing his own song at MGM in Vegas it will also be performed by an Icelandic Choir who will also travel to the entertainment capitol of the world.

The top Lion in Ireland District Governor Frank O’Donoghue will also attend the Convention.

Lions President in Wicklow Pat O’Brien said it was an incredible honour that a member from Wicklow would be invited not only to write a new song for the World President but to perform the song in Las Vegas he said it must feel like a dream for Sean representing Wicklow and Ireland at the highest level and he has no recollection of anything like this happening in Ireland before.

Pat said all members of Wicklow Lions wishes Sean every success on the trip of a lifetime and an amazing opportunity to share his music to a worldwide audience.
