    His 17 studio albums broke up a total circulation of 45 million copies
    Song Lady In Red six times received the award of the American Association of Composers and Publishers as one of the 20 most played songs on American radio.
    In 1999 he was awarded the international award "Nordoff - Robbins Music Therapy International Award" for his achievements in music and charity.

    De Burgh was born to Colonel Charles Davison, a British diplomat, and Maeve Emily de Burgh, an Irish secretary. He took his mother's name, "de Burgh", when he began performing. Due to his father's career interests Chris spent much of his early years in Malta, Nigeria and Zaire. When he was 6 the family moved to Ireland to a XII century castle bought by his grandfather. The castle was redesigned into a hotel and Chris sang for the guests there.

    Chris de Burgh signed his first contract with A&M Records as he was 26. His debut album, "Far Beyond These Castle Walls", was a folk-tinged stab at fantasy in the tradition of the Moody Blues, and failed to chart. However, the single Turning Around from the album stayed on top of the Brazilian charts 17 weeks. The same scenario took place with all his 70s albums and singles - not having success in the UK and the US, they blew up the charts of European and Latin American countries.

    This success came with the single "Lady in Red" in 1986. The song and the album "Into The Light" came to the top of the UK charts and USA. That success Chris has not yet repeated. Largely because of the inaction of his record label, the audience soon began to forget about Chris.

    In 1997 De Burgh wrote the song "There's a New Star Up in Heaven Tonight", dedicated to Princess Diana. The single was released in a limited edition of 100 copies.

    Chris De Burgh is married and has three children - daughter Rosana and two sons Hubie and Michael . Rosana received the title of "Miss World " in 2003. The sons went to his father's footsteps, they play guitar and piano.

    The note prepared by

    Well gladly consider your musical recommendations and other suggestions! To do this itisnt necessary to register! Its enough to add your name, the message (name of the song) and the verification code.

    How to recommend?

    Its easy to determine the chances that a certain composition will be added, simply by listening to the station for a few hours. Its even faster to get oriented by looking through the TOP100 tracks.

    Three main criteria:

    1) The song should be melodic! The simplest sign of the melodic quality of a composition: desire to sing along. Or, as a minimum, when the song stops the tune should be easily continued in the mind.

    2) Of course melodic songs exist in any genre, but the track must follow our stations format. The format is limited from different sides with a few main directions: soul, funk, rock, disco, blues, reggae and other relatively calm genres. The most important thing is to avoid extremes: metal, heavy rock, rap,"chanson", opera, and other styles will unfortunately stick out from the main direction even with a bright melody.

    3) Good quality! A lot of great music, recorded mainly before the 60s, doesnt have the quality of modern sound recording. This can be taken as motivation to find a good cover.

    All recommended compositions are stored in the music database of the radio and may be playedon-air at any moment, but sometimes this happens with a significant delay.
    After the decision is made, a composition is put on-air and appears in the TOP/30/100 section of recent additions. If a composition was added on the station but attributed to another recommender it means it was recommended by them before you.
