'Tears In Heaven' Performance From Guitar Quartet

'Tears In Heaven' Performance From Guitar Quartet

This ‘Tears in Heaven’ performance from the guitar quartet, 40 Fingers, is so powerful!

The guitar is an instrument that brings people together as a group and connects them through music. And this video featuring four guitarists playing Eric Clapton’s classic song, ‘Tears In Heaven’ with Croatia as a backdrop is downright stunning.

The combination is genius and beyond beautiful. The band, 40 Fingers, is composed of Matteo Brenci, Emanuele Grafitti, Enrico Maria Milanesi, and Andrea Vittori. All four of which are very handsome and talented Italian artists. But it isn't their looks that has gained them fame. It’s how well they play together.

Filmed near The Church and the Monastery of the St. John the Evangelist in the Town of Rab, Island Rab, Croatia, their rendition of the song begins with one man and his guitar before the camera pans to include each of the members and shots of the city. And the music is absolutely beautiful.

It’s definitely a beautiful portrayal of such a moving and tragic song, written by Eric following the tragic death of his son, Connor. In 1991, his son fell from an open window of a 53rd story high-rise apartment. The housekeeper had left it open to air out the fumes after cleaning when Connor ran past and fell to his death. Eric was understandably crushed by his son’s unexpected and tragic death.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven
The song moves even the hardest of hearts. The band 40 Fingers, however, make the song shine, perhaps a bit more brightly than its original version and the video is going viral with over 60,000 views within four days of its release. And the beauty of the song is not lost on listeners either.

One listener commented, “Beautiful arrangement. My wife and I lost a daughter 3 years ago to opiates. Today would have been her 23rd birthday. I pray there are no tears where she is, only peace. Thank you for the music, you all are gifted.” While another wrote, “Perfect day for this to debut on YouTube as today is my Dad's birthday. He would have been 89. Beautiful rendition of a beautiful song!”

While we no there are indeed no more tears in Heaven, we can pray for those who have lost loved ones. In the meantime, this is definitely a beautiful song not to be missed. Listen and share!

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelations 21:4
