Two members of Fresh Ré, Robert Scanlon and Harrison Dhodo, joined Hector in studio this morning. Robert is just finishing 6th class and Harrison has just finished the Leaving Cert. The boys were discovered on Youtube and invited to the Late Late Show to perform their viral hit, Rihanna’s “We Found Love”. There they met Robbie Williams who invited them to perform with him when he was back in Dublin. And so they did, last Friday night in the Aviva Staidum to over 50,000 people. Robert and Harrison performed the track that brought them to fame just 8 short months ago. Fresh Ré has five members in total and BWH is predicting great things for this young band from Celbridge, Co. Kildare.
