Andrea Bocelli and Katharine Mcphee - The prayer (Live 2008) HD

  • Published on Jun 21, 2011
  • The spectacular one-night only concert by David Foster and his famous friends finds the songwriter and hit producer gathering together the best tracks from his bottomless well of hits and inviting some talented folks to come along and help perform them. Not only are the songs magical, the performances are just as enchanting, including appearances from Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bubl‚, Josh Groban, Kenny G, Katharine McPhee, Celine Dion, Blake Shelton, Brian McKnight, and Charice. Spotlighting #1 hits, award-winning songs, and other favorites -- all but one originally penned and/or produced by Foster -- this May 23, 2008 show at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was unforgettable. Experience it again and again...

    [Celine Dion:]
    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
    Let this be our prayer
    When we lose our way
    Lead us to a place
    Guide us with your grace
    To a place where we'll be safe
    [Andrea Bocelli (Celine Dion):]
    La luce che tu hai
    (I pray we'll find your light)
    Nel cuore resterà
    (And hold it in our hearts)
    A ricordarci che
    (When stars go out each night)
    L'eterna stella sei
    Nella mia preghiera
    (Let this be our prayer)
    Quanta fede c'è
    (When shadows fill our day)
    Lead us to a place
    (Guide us with your grace)
    Give us faith so we'll be safe
    Sogniamo un mondo senza più violenza
    Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
    Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
    Simbolo di pace, e di fraternità
    [Andrea Bocelli (Celine Dion):]
    La forza che ci dà
    (We ask that life be kind)
    È il desiderio che
    (And watch us from above)
    Ognuno trovi amor
    (We hope each soul will find)
    Intorno e dentro a sé
    (Another soul to love)
    Let this be our prayer
    [Celine Dion:]
    Let this be our prayer
    [Andrea Bocelli:]
    Just like every child
    [Celine Dion:]
    Just like every child
    Need to find a place
    Guide us with your grace
    Give us faith so we'll be safe
    È la fede che
    Hai acceso in noi
    Sento che ci salvera

    Clearly Katherine could sing. But, she was a "America's Got Talent" winner. Or "You think you can Sing"? One of the 2. Bocelli is a professional opera singer with mega talent. Professionally trained. On another level I think. Possibly one of the best male voices out there. Then and maybe still today. He's almost effortless. Whereas you can see/hear Katherine working hard to hit those notes.

    Being is a little amazing he not only managed to become a lawyer and then a professional opera singer. He also had to "feel around" for KM's put his h and on her left-side at the end...he could have missed and put his hand on her boob. I guess they practiced this before hand...he knew her height...

    I watch this video every few months and I fall in love with Kat every time I watch. She is beautiful, compassionate, warm and truly a gifted singer. She and Andrea are two of the best singing couples I have ever seen. I have been a singer my entire life and have never heard any song that can compare. David Foster is a great writer and blessed to have Kat in his life. I hope he knows it.

    Luis Juarez, not unpopular at all, I agree. Avoid the Celine and Josh Groban version. Incidentally, J. Groban was a fine singer until he sang a plagiarized version of the Irish ballad Oh Danny Boy
