Dana Scallon

International recording artist and television personality Dana is one of Ireland's most successful entertainers. As Ireland’s first winner of the prestigious Eurovision Song Contest, the Derry schoolgirl surpassed internationally recognized singers with her song “All Kinds of Everything.” Kicking off her music career with a number one record throughout Europe, she enjoyed years of recording successes and chart-topping albums and singles. In 1987, Dana led 86,000 youth in singing "Totus Tuus " for Pope John Paul II in the New Orleans’s Super Dome. Later that year, she sang at three of Billy Graham’s Crusades in the United States and London. At the 1993 World Youth Day in Denver, she again sang for Pope John Paul II, leading more than 280,000 young people with her song “We are One Body.” In 1995, she sang alongside Placido Domingo at the Holy Father’s open air Mass in Central Park, New York, followed up by a performance at World Youth Day 1997 in Rome. Dana has remained close to her Irish roots, working tirelessly for peace, Christian family values, and respect for life as a spokesperson for the Christian family and the pro-life movement.
