May it be

The album artwork for Enya's single "May It Be"

Enya (born Eithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin on May 17, 1961) is a multilingual songwriter and singer from Ireland, whose musicianship since 1980 has spanned across genres of New Age, Celtic, folk music, and pop. She is in fact the biggest selling solo artist from Ireland.

In 2001, she wrote the song "May It Be" to be the credit song for Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The song got her nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award in 2002. She also composed and sang the theme for Aragorn and Arwen, which appears in the same film and is named "Aníron". The words to it were written by Enya's lyricist, Roma Ryan. In the listing of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, "Aníron" accompanies the track "The Council of Elrond".

"May It Be" and "Aníron" both feature Elven languages, respectively Quenya and Sindarin.
