Declan & young voices choir

I just heard this song from Declan age 13. How do I get a copy of it. This boyis amazing. Where does he come from?

The song "Tell me why" is available from many sources, for example Amazon. In the US it is on the album "Declan" by Declan Galbraith (the CD is sometimes also called "Declan Galbraith")

Details about him can be found at his web site at:
