Father-Daughter Duet To 'The Prayer' To Encourage Kindness

It was a heartwarming daddy-daughter duet captured on camera when this sweet duo sings ‘The Prayer.’ This powerful song was originally written by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa and Tony Renis in 1999.

It was written in both English and Italian for artists Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli to sing solo. But it was their incredible duet performance that truly propelled the song into the classic that it is today.

“So let the children remember the sun
Let them dance, let them soar
For their lives have begun
Let the children engender the rain
As the river runs through fields
Forever subsiding their pain

Now, another duo is putting their own spin on this classic and it’s absolutely stunning. Mat and Savanna Shaw are a talented father-daughter pair that enjoy singing together. And during this troubling time in our world, they thought ‘The Prayer’ was a fitting song to perform.

Dad Mat said, “With everything that is going on in the world, sometimes its best to pause and remember the simple prayer of a father and daughter for “life to be kind.””

It is always such a blessing to see a father and daughter share in a common passion and that’s exactly what it happening today. And their beautiful performance reached all across the globe with over 3 million views and growing.

As we face fear and anxiety each day, this was the perfect song to hear from this talented duo. We will pray and continue to have courage through each step of the way.
