The first time I heard The Prayer I was visiting Saddleback Church with my family. The Gunns ( an incredibly talented couple) performed it with a great pit orchestra and band. It was truly one of the most powerful songs and performances I had ever experienced. I have heard many people offer their version of The Prayer, and none, including the pairing of Celine Dion and Andre Bocelli as well as Josh Groban and Charlotte Church, were as impressive to me as the performance by the Gunns.
Then, I landed upon this version by Peter and Evynne Hollens. I really enjoy Peter’s work. His songs are generally composed completely of voices to make the music and then his singing voice brings it all together. I wondered if I would like he and his wife’s version of The Prayer…I have t admit, I really do. Not only do they shine in creating the music behind the lyrics with their voices, but they also sing it cleanly and beautifully. I hope you you find it as incredible as I do!
