Who Sang 'The Prayer' the Best?
"The Prayer" is a duet between Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli which was released initially as a single in 1999. It won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song from the Quest for Camelot movie in 1999. It was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1999 and a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2000. First, "The Prayer" was recorded by Celine Dion in English and Andrea Bocelli in Italian then the duet was released a few months later. It became popular in Canada and the United States.
Herewith are many renditions of the song "The Prayer". Enjoy watching and listening to the videos. Choose your favorite and the one you think is the best. For me, of course the original by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli is the best followed by Filipino song artists like Regine Velasquez, international young singer Charice Pempengco, and Lani Misalucha, with Martin Nievera. Regine and Martin even sang it at the former Philippine President Cory Aquino's funeral.
