Barack Obama included Hozier’s music in his ‘Favourite Songs of 2018’ list.
Each year the former president tells fans what his favourite songs, films and books of the year were, and this year he included a very special Irish addition.
The father-of-two is clearly a big fan of the Hozier’s music, as he included the Wicklow native’s track, ‘Nina Cried Power’, in his list.

As 2018 draws to a close, I’m continuing a favorite tradition of mine and sharing my year-end lists. It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year through the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved. It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before. Swipe through to see my best of 2018 list – I hope you enjoy reading, watching, and listening.
Hozier was shocked by the news, as he tweeted: “This is amazing? Thank you @BarackObama”.
The singer released the incredible track in September with gospel singer, Mavis Staples.
