Niall, who originates from Mullingar in Ireland, kicked off his all-important performance in front of Joe Biden and other Irish guests in the White House’s East Room. Niall performed four songs in the special performance, two of the songs were themed on immigration. He sang his brand new track Heaven as well as his first ever single This Town, dedicating the latter to his hometown.
Niall addressed the audience during his performance:
Thanks very much for having me here. As a proud Irishman who travels the world, it’s a major honour for me to be here. Thanks for putting me up to it. There’s a lot of talented Irish singers out there but to get chosen to represent your country on the grandest of stages is a real honour, so thanks very much.
