Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli Sing 'The Prayer,' In Central Park
Legendary musicians Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli came together to perform ‘The Prayer’ in central park.
The song, which was originally recorded by the pair in 1998, was actually a soundtrack for the Quest For Camelot movie and even bagged a golden globe for Best Original Song and an Oscar nomination in the same category.
Thirteen years later in 2011, Bocelli and Dion reunited in Central Park to perform their hit song once more. Their performance featured a live orchestra and has been viewed over 77 million times on YouTube since its upload.
At the age of 12, Bocelli was tragically diagnosed with congenital glaucoma, which caused him to lose his sight following a football accident. Despite that fact, Bocelli has grown to become one of the most famous and respected singers worldwide.
Dion once famously said about Bocelli:
“If God had a singing voice, he would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli.”
