Enya, born Eithne Ni Bhraonin on May 17, 1961, spent most of her childhood growing up in Gweedore (situated in the north-west of Ireland). She was one of nine siblings, including four other girls and four boys. All of the children became involved in the music scene at a very early age and became famous in national traditional music circles. In 1980, Enya joined some of her fellow family members in an Irish folk music group called "Clannad" (which stood for "the family from Gweedore" in Irish). The group consisted of three of her siblings along with two of their uncles. Enya, having studied the piano and classical music throughout school, was persuaded by the group's manager, Fachtna O'Kelly, to provide vocals and play piano during the recording of its two albums, Crann Ull and Fuaim. She performed and toured with the group on many occasions, however, she left Clannad in 1982 for undisclosed reasons. Enya moved to Artane, the northern part of Dublin, shortly thereafter, and shared a house with her friend Nicky Ryan and his wife, Roma. All three had been involved musically with Clannad at one point or another. Nicky Ryan worked as a sound engineer with the group in its early beginnings. In 1984, Enya was persuaded by former group manager Fachtna O'Kelly to devote herself to composing music for films, clearly recognized for her superb musical talent. As of mid-2007, Enya has claimed to have sold 70 million albums. An American businessperson has coined the phrase "enyanomics" to explain Enya's ability to sell millions of records without giving any live performances. On June 29, 2007, Enya received an honorary doctorate from the National University of Ireland, Galway. The ceremony for six total recipients (Enya as one recipient) was held at noon. Shortly after, in July 10, 2007, (date also stated at Enya's official website under News) Enya received a second honorary doctorate from the University of Ulster. On her latest album, Amarantine, Enya sings in Japanese and Loxian, a language invented by Roma Ryan. A number of Enya's songs are sung entirely in Irish or Latin, while most of her songs are sung in English. Enya has also sung songs written entirely or partially in Welsh, Spanish, French, and even languages created by J. R. R. Tolkien. Enya has performed songs relating to J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, including 1991's "Lothlórien" (instrumental), 2001's "May It Be" (sung in English and Quenya), and "Aníron" (in Sindarin)—the last two which she composed appearing on the soundtrack of Peter Jackson's movie The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
