Known as one of the two principal shopping streets in Dublin Ireland’s city centre, Grafton Street is home to artists, poets and busker’s, but this Christmas Eve, Grafton Street served up an extra special busking session from celebrities who gathered to raise money for the Simon Community.
“That was incredible,” one stunned onlooker told Hot Press. “I was out innocently doing my shopping when I saw a crowd gathered. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I had a closer look – you might expect to see someone like Mundy doing something like this for charity, but there were three huge stars there, giving it loads. It really added to the Christmas eve atmosphere. The only problem is I had one more present to get but the shop is closed now!”
Among the songs the superstar buskers played: U2’s ‘One’, Bob Dylan’s ‘Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door’ and ‘You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,’ Ben King’s ‘Stand By Me’ and a version of Mic Christopher’s ‘Heyday’, all of which had hundreds singing along, with Glen Hansard – Mic’s best friend – leading the line.
