The video of her performance was posted online and has captured the attention of thousands of commentators and several Irish media outlets.

Julie Rose is a fifth year student from Killorgan and the song was part of several fundraising activities taking place to help the local hospice.

Her beautiful voice has certainly caught the attention of viewers online, especially during the festive season.

O Holy Night is one of the most loved Christmas carols around the world. The music was composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to go with the French poem “Minuit, chrétiens” (Midnight, Christians) written by Placide Cappeau.

The carol was soon translated into English and has been recorded by some of the biggest names in music, including Nat King Cole, Mariah Carey, Josh Groban and Bastille.

Few will have sang it so beautifully as Irish student Julie Rose Bowell.

Take a look at the video for yourself.
