Idol Contestant Willie Spence Sings 'The Prayer' Duet With Katharine McPhee

Feel the power of faith through song as Idol contestant Willie Spence sings ‘The Prayer’ duet with Katharine McPhee. Both performers decided to dedicate the performance to lost loved ones in heaven, making the video even more emotional.

‘The Prayer’ is a beautiful song and inspirational song that lingers after you hear it in the most lovely way. It was originally recorded in English by Celine Dion and, separately, in Italian by Andrea Bocelli. The song was written for the 1998 movie, Quest for Camelot.

Celine and Andrea later came together to record a very famous duet version that blended their voices together to create musical magic.

Almost a decade after Celine Dion’s single version made the top 100, she released a new duet version with Josh Groban that also made the top 100 in the United States.

The timeless musical prayer performed by these talented singers will give you chills. Chills from both the beauty of the song and the beauty of the lyrics.

I pray You’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know

Willie and Katharine’s version is absolutely beautiful. The song will even make you teary-eyed if you’ve experienced that overwhelming feeling of fear or uncertainty and knowing you can just give your worries to God.

I’m sure each night Willie performs on American Idol, he surrenders his nervousness to Him. I know I would have to!

Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10
