Last week, Kildare singer/songwriter Mick Konstantin shot to fame once again with the release of ‘There’s Only One Conor McGregor’. The school teacher posted the video to his Facebook page, and it spread virally across the world, garnering millions of views within hours.
Word soon reached Conor McGregor as he prepares for his bout with Floyd Mayweather. The Notorious One elected to pay for Mick and a friend to fly out to Las Vegas next week, book them a hotel and give them tickets to the fight.
“It’s all been a bit crazy really” quipped Konstantin, “I really love creating music people enjoy, I could never have dreamt that the song would have reached the heights it has.”
“I couldn’t believe it” continued Konstantin, “McGregor’s team rang me the following day and told me McGregor loved the song. That was amazing that he heard the song and liked it, but McGregor and his team asked if I’d like to go to the fight. It was a dream come true”
Konstantin has now released the single, which is available on iTunes and Spotify.
“The support I’ve received for this song has been immense, and I’m going to have the trip of a lifetime to see McGregor in action in Vegas. I felt I had to give something back. I have decided to donate all iTunes sales of “There’s Only One Conor McGregor” until the fight to a charity Conor supports. The proceeds of the sales will go to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin” detailed Mick Konstantin, “I’d love to see the hospital benefit from this and see the proceeds going to a good cause.”
Judging by the reaction to his last hit single, Takin’ Over France, which rose to the top of the charts in Ireland last summer, we expect There’s Only One Conor McGregor to take the same trajectory!
