  • In March 1970 a nineteen-year-old singer from Derry won the Eurovision Song Contest. The win stunned Ireland. It was the first such victory in the hugely popular contest. An extraordinary career had been born.
    Dana became a household name; but rather than disappear forever from view as did so many before her and since, she continued to develop her career as a popular artist and gained particular recognition in the UK, Europe and in the US. Throughout the seventies and eighties she had a string of hits, was voted best female artist, best TV artist, hosted series on BBC and ITV and appeared on Top of the Pops with stars such as David Bowie, Queen and Marc Bolan, as well as at several royal command performances.

    In the 1990s she moved to the US and hosted a television series to over 75 million homes on the EWTN cable network. She has met with Presidents Ford, Reagan, Clinton and Bush, and met and sung for the Pope on five occasions.

    In 1997 Dana was the first-ever independent candidate nominated to contest Irelands presidential election. She shocked the political establishment by gaining 15 per cent of the popular vote. Two years later she was successful in being elected, against all the odds, as a Member of the European Parliament for Connacht/Ulster.

    From a childhood in the Bogside of Derry, through the maelstrom of international showbiz, to the White House and the Vatican, to the European Parliament and all its political intrigue, Danas story is truly astonishing. In All Kinds of Everything she tells the story of her rise to fame and of her strongly-held beliefs and commitments in terms that are as endearing as they are revealing and inspiring.
