Gorgeous full-figured singer ChloŽ Agnew and her group, Celtic Woman, were just in Japan last week, where they filmed a number of promotional videos to support the release of their album titled Believe, which is the soundtrack to a new Japanese movie.

This brief video shows the girls enthusing about their new album.

The next video is a promotional trailer for both the Believe album and for the film, which is called Princess Toyotomi. It shows footage of ChloŽ and her group members recording their album, intercut with scenes from the film.

It's always a pleasure to listen to ChloŽ's lovely voice - both her singing voice and her speaking voice, with its enchanting Irish lilt - and to gaze upon her beauty.

ChloŽ and Celtic Woman also appeared on a well-known television show in Japan, for which they performed one of their most popular songs, "You Raise Me Up." Amazingly, at 2:26, they shift into singing in Japanese! This means that ChloŽ has performed in English, Gaelic, German, Latin, Italian, and now Japanese. Her beauty of voice and person are truly universal.

ChloŽ and her group are extremely popular in Japan -- this offering yet another example of the nobility of Japanese culture and its being attuned to the finest music of the Western tradition.
