Secret Garden’s “You lift me up” was released in 2002, however it wasn’t immediately successful for the Norwegian-Irish group. However, the song has been covered over 125 times, with Josh Groban’s version being the most well-known.
Whether performed by major musicians, church choirs, or those auditioning for television programs, it’s a song that’s shown to be adaptable, enabling it to be adapted to the chosen style of the vocalist.
Perhaps you have never considered Donny Osmond singing this song until now.
This decades-old musician, who was formerly a member of the Osmonds, still has his voice, as seen in this version of a song that has become a classic. A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Donny is a Mormon, much like the rest of his family.
When it comes to singing, Osmond is excellent, conveying the gospel-like tone without going overboard, as other musicians do. Donny makes no attempt to draw attention to himself, instead fitting in seamlessly with the ensemble.
I can’t believe what a beautiful soul you have, Donny Osmond! To many in the music industry, you are a shining example of ethical clean living, particularly for our generation. Your abilities have been enhanced, and you continue to provide great joy to all of us.’ ”
Pam, a spectator, expresses herself in the following way:
This is a song that people from all over the globe resort to when they are experiencing times of despair and need to raise their spirits up to the Lord in prayer. It also doesn’t matter which church you attend or what denomination you are.
It’s a tune that everybody may enjoy.
Donny earns a standing ovation for his performance, and, as befits a gentleman, he shakes hands with a violinist and the conductor afterward. Osmond seems to be in terrific shape for a guy in his sixties!
The audience will be in for a real treat today.
Donny returns to the stage, this time to perform “The Prayer” with American Tenor Nathan Pacheco, who is known for his outstanding vocal abilities. The spirits are lifted once again with this song! Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion made this song popular with their renditions.
It was initially published as four different solo compositions on the soundtrack for the animated film Quest for Camelot, before being combined into one cohesive piece by David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager, Alberto Testa, and Tony Renis.
An English-language solo version for Celine Dion was recorded, as was an Italian-language version for Andrea Bocelli.
A duet version of “The Prayer” was recorded by Dion and Bocelli in 1998, and it was included on both of their solo albums, which were released in 1998 and 1999 respectively.
Donny begins the song in English, his voice calm and deep as he transmits the message of the song over the whole auditorium. Pacheco takes care of everything in Italian, with Osmond responding in English after a while.
And then it’s on to another level, with the two guys joining forces with the choir to sing in Italian, their voices ascending to the sky in unison with the power being released on stage.
“Absolutely the most magnificent, emotional, angelic, spiritual, and beautiful singing of two amazing songs, and then Nathan Pacheco was stupendous and such a great, great duet with you in “The Prayer,” said viewer Diana Greening in her passionate remark. Both of your incredible, incredible talents, voices, and abilities have elevated my heart and spirit. Thank you so much for that. I could listen to both of you on these songs a thousand times over for the rest of eternity! Thank you both very much for everything. “You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers at all times.”
She’s exactly correct in her assessment.
Make a note of this one in your favorites. Although life is difficult, the world has gone completely insane in certain ways. If you’re looking for a quiet retreat that also includes soul-stirring music, go no further than Donny and Nathan’s music.
