Daniel O'Donnell

The Official Charts Company has deemed Daniel O’Donnell, whose 33rd long player ‘Songs From The Movies And More’ charted yesterday at number seven, the first and only artist to have had a new LP in the UK charts each year for 25 consecutive years.

A “delighted” O’Donnell contemplates the accolade thus: “Different things stick out from each year and each year brings something new, but having the success of the 25 years in the charts is a great personal satisfaction. I had looked at becoming a banker or a teacher but the call to singing was always really strong for me. The last 25 years have been great and I don’t regret a single day of it”.
