'The Prayer' Classic Performance By Andrea Bocelli And Celine Dion

'The Prayer' Classic Performance By Andrea Bocelli And Celine Dion

World-renowned vocalists Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion come together to sing ‘The Prayer.’


David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa and Tony Renis originally wrote this iconic song in 1999. The song was written in both English and Italian for Celine and Andrea to sing solo, respectively.

Later, the two powerhouse voices came together for an incredible duet of this beautiful song that received rave reviews.

“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”

Decades later, the powerful words of ‘The Prayer’ still ring true in the hearts of so many around the world. And this performance is one of the most notable renditions.

So many artists have lent their voices to this iconic song, but nothing compares to the original performers. Andrea and Celine are both superstars on their own. But when you bring these two together, it makes for an award-winning combination.

‘The Prayer’ won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1999 and was nominated for both a Grammy and an Academy Award. The lyrics truly make us think about our relationship with God. When we put our trust in Him, the Lord will lead us exactly where we need to be.

When we call out to God, He listens to each and every one of our prayers. This is a duet that will certainly stand the test of time. Don’t you agree?
