“You Raise Me Up” is an inspirational song originally composed and performed in 2002 by Irish/Norvegian duo, Secret Garden. The song was brought to worldwide recognition by Josh Groban who recorded it, in 2003, for his second album, Closer. “You Raise Me Up” was the hit single off that album reaching the top of the adult contemporary chart where it stayed for six weeks. It was also Groban’s first entry on Billboard’s Hot 100 at #73 and it was eventually nominated for a Grammy as “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.”

“Let Me Let Go” is a country/pop ballad included in Faith Hill’s 1998 album “Faith.” Produced by Hill with Dann Huff, “Let Me Let Go” was also a #1 single on the Country charts in the Spring of 1999 and reached #33 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Given the song’s appeal, “Let Me Let Go” was also given to David Foster who re-recorded it adding his trademark adult contemporary flavor. He eventually included it on his soundtrack for the movie “Message In The Bottle.” Foster’s remix was also included on the international edition of the “Faith” album entitled “Love Will Always Win.”
