Celtic Woman, touring in support of its hit-producing album "Songs From the Heart," will stop at Memorial Auditorium on Thursday.

The quartet's song "Lullaby" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard World Music chart.

Featuring vocalists Lisa Kelly, Chloë Agnew and newest member Lisa Lambe along with violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, the group has won the hearts of fans with what critics are calling an "uplifting," "breathlessly dramatic" and "beyond captivating" concert experience, according to the band's biography.

"Songs From the Heart" features a mix of Irish classics, contemporary covers and original compositions, including renditions of Jimmy Webb's "The Moon's a Harsh Mistress," Billy Joel's "Goodnight My Angel," "Amazing Grace" and Irish classics "My Lagan Love" and "Galway Bay."

Since the ensemble's 2005 debut, Celtic Woman has sold more than 6 million CDs/DVDs, had two Top 10 album debuts on the Billboard Top 200, three gold or platinum albums, four Top 5 releases on Billboard Top Videos and more than 1.2 million concert tickets sold.
