~~December 26, 2014~~

Josh Groban and Celine Dion Sing a Heavenly Duet of The Prayer

This is a beautiful song. I’ve liked it since I first heard it. Needless to say, another one of my favorite performers is Celine Dion.

The story of how these artists teamed up brings a smile to my face.

Hope you enjoy it too.

~~LYRICS~~

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

La luce che tu dai
I pray we’ll find your light
Nel cuore restera
And hold it in our heart

A ricordarci che
When stars go out each night
L’eterna stella sei
Ooh

Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
Quanta fede c’e
When shadows fill our day

Lead us to a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza
Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza

Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternita

La forza che ci da
We ask that life be kind
E il desiderio che
And watch us from above

Ognuno trovi amore
We hope each soul will find
Intorno e dentro se
Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Just like every child

Need to find a place
Guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

E la fede che
Hai acceso in noi
Sento che ci salvera

~~Believe~~

Children, sleeping, snow is softly falling
Dreams are calling
Like bells in the distance

We were dreamers, not so long ago
but one by one we
all had to grow up

When it seems the magic slipped away
We find it all again on Christmas Day

Chorus:
Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
there’s no time to waste
there’s so much to celebrate

Believe in what you feel inside
and give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe

Trains move, quickly
to their journeys end
Destinations are where we begin again

Ships go, sailing
far across the sea
trusting starlight
to get where they need to be

When it seems that we have lost our way
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day

Chorus:
Believe in what in your heart is saying
hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate

Believe in what you feel inside
and give your dreams the wings
to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe
If you just believe
If you just believe
If you just believe
Just Believe
Just Believe

The Polar Express is a 2004 American motion capture computer-animated musical Christmas fantasy film based on the children’s book of the same title by Chris Van Allsburg. Written, produced, and directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film featured human characters animated using the live action performance capture technique, with the exception of the dancing waiters who dispense hot chocolate on the train, because their feats were impossible for live actors to achieve. The Polar Express is listed in the Guinness World Book of Records in 2006 as the first all-digital capture film. This is Castle Rock Entertainment’s first animated film.

This was Michael Jeter’s last acting role, and the film was dedicated to his memory.

To start the day …. “You raise me up”!!


~~October 17, 2014~~

There is no need to step on or over anyone in our personal quest for success. Being strong doesn’t require the need to excel at the expense of others. Being strong doesn’t actually imply physical strength.

Being strong means, to me, strong of heart, mind and soul. 

Being strong shows character, individuality and belief in principles of community, leadership and guidance. 

Being strong is working together with and helping others.

Raise

~You Raise Me Up~

“You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be …… “

You Raise Me Up” is a song that was originally composed by the duo Secret Garden. The music was written by Secret Garden’s Rolf Løvland and the lyrics by Brendan Graham. After the song was performed early in 2002 by the Secret Garden and their invited lead singer, Brian Kennedy, the song only became a minor UK hit.

The song has been recorded by more than a hundred other artists including Josh Groban, who popularized the song in 2003; his rendition became a hit in the United States. The Irish band Westlife then popularized the song in the United Kingdom two years later. “You Raise Me Up” is sung as a contemporary hymn in church services.

A message from Barbra …. her album “Partners”!!


~~September 24, 2014~~

I received my copy in the mail yesterday. And I ordered the “Deluxe CD” which has several other duets she’s done before. My treat …. Her voice continues to be impeccable. The choice of songs and partners is excellent. 

I was particularly touched by the one with her son Jason Gould. 

MSoul

In her own words: 

“Hearing the news that “Partners” entered the charts at #1 was an overwhelming feeling of joy!!

Being told that I’ve had #1 albums in six consecutive decades makes me feel truly blessed and grateful to have such loyal fans. I feel you rooting for me and I so appreciate all of your energy and support.

It’s especially sweet since I get to share this moment with my wonderfully talented partners who I had the pleasure of singing with: Michael Bublé, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Babyface, Billy Joel, Blake Shelton, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Josh Groban, my beloved son Jason Gould…and last but not least, Elvis Presley…forever The King!

Finally, thank you to Rob Stringer and my Columbia Records family, my manager Marty Erlichman, my creative team on this project – Kenny Edmonds, Walter Afanasieff, Dave Reitzas, Bill Ross, and Jay Landers…and Ken Sunshine for getting the word out… we did it guys!!

With lots of love,
Barbra
