Chloe Agnew Biography
Chloe Agnew was born on June 9, 1989, in Dublin, Ireland. She is the daughter of Irish pop icon Adele "Twink" King and Irish oboist David Agnew. Chloe may be young but she is already a musical veteran. She made her stage debut at 4 weeks old and sang on her mother's TV show at the age of 6.
In 1998, Agnew represented Ireland and was the winner of the Grand Prix at the First International Children's Song Competition in Cairo, Egypt, with a song called "The Friendship Tree". In 1999, she appeared in The Young Messiah, a modern adaptation of Handel's Messiah. In this production, she played one of the children and performed sign language.
Her big break came at the age of 11 when she approached Musical Director David Downes with the idea of recording a song to raise money for the children of Afghanistan. With his assistance, she recorded "Angel of Mercy" for the album This Holy Christmas Night, which raised over 20,000 pounds for the Afghan Children's Charity Fund in 2001.
In 2002, at 12 years of age, Agnew was signed to Celtic Collections, and with the backing of Downes she recorded her debut album Chloe. Two years later, in 2004, she followed this with her second album, Walking in the Air. That same year, she appeared as part of the group Celtic Woman at The Helix in Dublin. To date, she has recorded three albums with the group and has taken part in several world tours.
Chloe is not only a brilliant singer and incredibly talented performer, but also a positive role model for young women today.
