News On Ryan

News on Ryan-


A little over a week ago Ryan Kelly suffered a serious accident requiring hospitalisation. There was no news of this posted until now as there was no news to give.
Thankfully Ryan has now started on the road to recovery for which we are all very grateful.

Unfortunately Ryan won’t be able to perform this summer at our upcoming Atlantic City shows, but we are all looking forward to Ryan being back with us before too long.

Ryan is receiving the best of care and attention in the hospital. His family have requested that, in this difficult time, we respect their privacy, and news on Ryan will only be posted here.

Regretfully, flowers, gifts, cards etc are not allowed at the hospital but we know that, like ourselves, your prayers, thoughts and best wishes are with Ryan and his family for the speediest of recoveries.

Get well soon Ryan.

Thank you! Ryan and his family have been in our thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. Much love to all! Again – thank you!

17/06/12 18:20


My thoughts and prayers continue as you recover Ryan. I truly believe in the power of prayer and know that God has the power to heal you. To Ryan’s family, you are included in those prayers as I know from personal experieince how hard it is to patiently await the recovery of a loved one. May God bless each of you and hear our prayers.

17/06/12 18:35


OMG, Sharon, thank you so much for letting us know he’s on the mend. That’s all we need to know.

Ryan, take all the time you need Sweetheart, we are waiting and will wait as long as it takes and as long as you need to get better. We love you so very much!!!

Thanks for letting us know! I’ve been worried about Ryan for a while now since we haven’t had any tweets.

Ryan, I am so thankful that you are on the mend, getting topnotch medical care with your family around you. Know that all of us Thunderheads are there with you in spirit. I’ve added you and your family – because sometimes waiting is harder than being the patient – to my prayer journal and will lift you up in my daily conversations with Our Father. I will miss seeing you in Atlantic City, but I’m thankful you’ll be continuing to heal, and maybe you’ll be back with the guys when I see you in Charlotte. In the mean time, I know God will keep you in the palm of his hand. May His peace and healing grace be with you! Love, Lisa

17/06/12 19:36


I hope Ryan knows his fans will be here whenever the time is right for him to return to his music. I can’t believe how much I miss all his silly tweets and his daily presence in my life, but all that matters right now is Ryan’s recovery. I am glad to give him all the time and space and privacy he needs in that cause.

Much love to you Ryan.

Many blessings to you, Ryan. It is so good to hear you are on the road to recovery. As much as I would just love to see you in Boston in September, don’t rush yourself. Take your time. You know we’ll all still be here. Be well and be strong.

17/06/12 23:04


Ryan, I am so very happy to hear that you are on the road to recovery. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult time and you will all remain there as you continue to heal. I have truly never seen such an outpouring of prayers, from so many people, as I’ve seen in these past 2-weeks…you are truly loved! I look forward to the time when we can see your smiling face. I miss your tweets (your sense of humour and the pics you post) and will look forward to the day when I see them again. In the meantime, take care of yourself and stay strong. God willing I will see you in Tampa, in November! God Bless and keep you in His perfect care, always.

17/06/12 23:36


So glad to hear you are on the mend. I continue to pray for healing, for wisdom for your medical team, and for peace for you and your family. Get well soon, Ryan. We miss you!

Dear Sweet Ryan,
Praise God for the good news we recieved today fromSharon Brown. I think you will see I’ve been all over the place praying and asking others to join the Ryan Kelly Waiting Room on FB where we held a twentyfour hour around the clock prayer vigil for you and your family and friends. I too strongly believe in the power of prayer and that the promises of God are true. His Word was spoken, songs sang and scripture quoted day and night always holding fast to the promise that His word will not return void but will accomplish what it was sent to do. By faith hundreds of Thunderheads confessed Gods word and prayed in the Spirit for your healing and recovery. I believe this crisis also drew many of God’s people together who would never have met anywhere else. Untold fans have had a new spiritual awakening as a result of witnessing the hand of God working in so many ways. You are blessed, Mr. Kelly and God definately has a plan and a purpose for you. God is not finished with you yet, sir. So get well, take your time and know the prayers will continue. Praise the Lord!!!

Don’t stop now. I have been praying for you and your family, and I am not stopping now, You and your family needs my prayers more now than ever. The Lord will see you and get you through this. Trust in the Lord Ryan that is where you will find your help. Take Care, Much Love. ♥♥♥

Relief is such a powerful emotion! That is sometimes all one needs! Thank God and everyone who prayed that Ryan is on the mend. I feel so much better knowing that as I am sure so many others do.

Hi, Ryan!!! I just heard you may soon get to have your cherished laptop!!! I am so glad to hear that you are healing and I am sure having your laptop makes things seem brighter for you. A little bit of “normal” back in your life. Just take things slowly and no Jumping out of trees or leaping tall buildings in a single bound. I know you were looking forward to Atlantic City and sleeping in a bed that doesn’t move for a couple of weeks but, knowing your fighting spirit, hopefully you will be ready for the tour in September!!! As much as I and all of your fans want to see and hear you perform, your health is what matters to everyone!!! Your fans will always be there for you. You have lifted so many hearts and spirits the world over with your beautifully unique, voice, lyrics and that beautiful smile, but the Ryan we love most is the tender, humble man inside. Take care. Don’t forget that you are surrounded by love and prayers from all over the world.

franchon from DC

Thank you Sharon for the latest news today about our dear Ryan. So glad to hear he is making steady improvements in his healing journey. Yes the prayers are being answered and we give thanks. There is no doubt in my mind that Our Lord is never too busy to hear and answer our prayers (and send us a RT-LOL). God has a plan for Ryan’s life, He started working on Ryan from that first time when he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and “performed” as a child in church. God put the gift and that desire in Ryans heart and He will make it come to fruition.. The part none of us knows is how it will all turn out. Only God knows that. But already we see God’s Hand working in the lives of so many people who have been touched in some way by Ryan’s God given gifts. Ryan would be amazed at the world-wide response and just how far and wide his impact has truly been, Not just for his musical talent but because he is a humble and gentle child of God. Let us Praise God for He is faithful. His love will last forever!
You and those you love are always in my prayers and on my mind, Ryan. May the Peace of Our Lord fill your heart and mind as your body heals.
With Love in Christ,

hi Ryan
SO happy to get a little more new about you. I have put you on many prayer lists at churches and ministries known for their prayer warriors. i have been praying for you constantly since you were injured. my husband has as well. Just rest in the fact that our loving Father has you in his capable hands and is healing you day by day for his purposes and plan for your life. Sometimes we don’t understand why these things happen, but that’s only because we do not have all the pieces of the puzzle of our lives – but Jesus does. Praying for a full and complete recovery and hoping you will be well enough to join the fall tour
In His Grip,
Linda Lemons

Not Irish Colleen

My Dear Irishman, patience is a virtue that can be hard-won, and recovering from injuries teaches that lesson in a very difficult manner. If I could take away some of your pain, I would. I keep you and yours in my prayers, as I have since I first saw you perform. Prayers have been made for you all over this crazy planet of ours. And, you can still be crazy angry that it happened to you and you may never know why. It just did! You have the power of youth and the energy of original good health…you will prosper! I have always said there is something abou you that is extremely important spiritually…I am old, I can be right some of the time. Rest., move every muscle you can when they tell you to. Regaining strength can be tough…you are tougher. Love, Not IrishColleen

My wife introduced me to Celtic Thunder about 4 days ago. Since that time, I have been watching every YouTube video I could find of you and Celtic Thunder. I was totally enthralled by the passion , the sound, and the standard of excellence that all of you displayed. Being a singer myself in ensembles for over 20 years now, I immediately gravitated to noticing every movement, note, and action. From what I could tell, it was absolutely flawless, but what I enjoyed the most was watching you enjoying yourself on stage. I can’t begin to tell how much that blessed me.

It is so nice to see you doing what you love to do. I am I so glad that you are back on your feet. Keep looking to the hills from where comes your strength.
