The Ray D'Arcy Show had a special interview with Angela's Christmas Executive Producer Ellen McCourt yesterday, where they discussed the short film, Dolores O'Riordan's sad passing and her late husband Frank McCourt, Pulitzer Prize winning author of 'Angela and Baby Jesus', on which Angela's Christmas is based.
"There were tears of joy and weeping, of recognition really, particularly Malachy who narrates, because Angela is his mother, so the story really hits home to him.
[Angela's Christmas] is a sweet story of family, of love, of compassion and it's a little girls story." - Ellen McCourt, Angela's Christmas Executive Producer
