Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

A lot of people know "Enya" the music, but they don't know what I look like, or what I do. And I think that that's really good... for me, and for the music as well.

Trivia:

A sample of her song "Boadicea" was used on the Mario Winans hit 'I Dont Want To Know'. It was also used without permission in the Fugees' song "Ready or Not." The Fugees originally did not credit Enya on their album, did not sue them, but it was later settled and she is now credited. See more »
