“Unbelievable,” one user commented. “Gave me goosebumps.”
“I didn’t expect that! Brought a tear to my eyes,” another echoed.
The bride and groom had no idea Kelly planned to serenade them at their wedding, which took place in Ireland, the Irish Independent reported.
“Normally for a local, couple, they’d ask me to sing at the wedding and I’d oblige, but this couple had no idea,” Kelly told a radio show.
