Michele Ann Kelly links MarriagEquality and Money Back Guaranteed Tour with her new single ‘Time’

23 Jun 2009

In what is believed to be a first for Ireland, Dublin singer-songwriter Michele Ann Kelly has announced details of her nationwide 'Money Back Guaranteed' tour which follows the release of her single 'Time', the first track from her forthcoming debut album 'Songs That Saved My Life', both of which will be used to support the campaign for marriage equality.

Proceeds from the sale of 'Time' will go to the MarriagEquality fund. 'Time' is available to buy from her website www.micheleannkelly.ie/shop, at Tower Records in Dublin and at all Michele Ann Kelly gigs while on her nationwide tour.

Speaking at the launch in Tower Records about her link-up with the marriage equality campaign, Kelly said "marriage equality is a right that should be available to same-sex couples in any society that likes to think of itself as civilised and just. I'm delighted by the response from the music community to the marriage equality issue and I'm confident that other musicians will lend their support in the coming months."

Moninne Griffith, Director, MarriagEquality, commented, "It is very encouraging to find musicians of Michele's calibre supporting the campaign to extend equal marriage rights to lesbians and gay men. There is a history of artists, musicians and poets speaking out against human rights abuses and this is another of those times. 'Time' is not just a beautiful song, it is a reminder that now is the time for equality."

Michele's 'Money Back Guaranteed' tour starts officially on June 27th at Dublin's Pride Festival's Post Parade Party at the Civic Offices Amphitheatre, Wood Quay at 3.30pm. She'll subsequently embark on a nationwide tour, with gigs in Galway, Limerick, Cork, Galway, Waterford, Louth, Killarney, Offaly and elsewhere.
