He is actually very proud of his origin, but this has never influenced him to make the decision to become an opera performer. Many people know how he loves Ireland, because he is known to have been visiting the country several times whenever he gets the time.
When he was growing up in Ireland with small family, he was actually listening to the music there, especially from Wolfe Tones and also from the Clancy Brothers.His grandfather was known to play the fiddle, and he taught Mulligan to play it too. When in this country, Mulligan actually never sang any of their traditional Ireland music unless he was singing along in a group.
