Brother And Sister Sing 'The Prayer' Duet At Her Wedding

Two siblings with opposite styles of singing come together for a beautiful duet of ‘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
Prayer”

Today, this brother-sister duo is putting their own spin on ‘The Prayer’ and it’s a performance that you don’t want to miss. Growing up, Anna Richey and her brother, Joseph, both had a love for music. But their musical taste couldn’t have been more different.

Anna was drawn to a pop-sound, while Joseph preferred traditional opera. But when she heard ‘The Prayer, ‘ she knew that there was finally a song they could sing together.

On YouTube, Anna wrote about the story behind this special performance. “The first time I heard this song, I knew that my brother and I would sing it at my wedding. We had finally found a song that catered to both of our musical languages and I truly felt that this song was written specifically for us.”

And when it came time for Anna’s wedding, they belted out these iconic words for all of the family and friends in attendance. It was truly an unforgettable moment during Anna’s reception and the video has touched hearts all around the world with over 2 million views.

Music has a way of connecting people and this performance is the perfect example.
