Franciscan Song for New Beginnings: Halley’s Comet by Sarah Darling

Sister JulieAnn Sheahan

September 03, 2017

During September, a month of college and university students’ new ventures and young adults taking steps in their vocations and professional lives, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature Sarah Darling’s Halley’s Comet. The theme of new beginnings and returnings (like a comet) are moments to be celebrated and thoughtfully reflected on. We all desire to shine in following God’s will.

About Sarah Ann Darling

Sarah Ann Darling is an American country music singer and songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. She first made her name known to the public in 2003, when she was a top-three finalist on E! Entertainment Television’s reality show, The Entertainer, hosted by Wayne Newton. Darling then went into the studio in the summer of 2008 to record her debut album, Every Monday Morning, which was released on June 16, 2009. A second album, Angels & Devils, featuring the hit single, “Something to Do With Your Hands”, followed on February 15, 2011. In August 2012, her single titled “Home to Me,” was released to digital retailers after being previously featured on Sirius XM’s The Highway. It sold over 8,000 copies in the first week of release, becoming the top selling digital single from a new female artist since May 2011.

Over the total span of her career, Darling has reached over a half-million downloads worldwide and landed two #1 videos on CMT and GAC, in addition to appearances on TBS’ CONAN, FOX & Friends, HLN Morning Express with Robin Meade, ABC’s The Bachelor, Better TV and more. On top of this, her dream of playing the Grand Ole Opry came to pass in February 2011, when she made her debut. Since then, Darling has been a frequent visitor to the Opry stage.

Darling is now preparing to release new music this coming January. From wishing on wandering stars, to never giving up, the new material really captures the spirit of the ones who love to dream. Sarah Darling is sure to take you on whimsical ride through songs about stars, and when cowboys used to ride away into the West, with her new sound that she calls Dream Country.
