from THE PRAYER (single)
Written by David Foster & Carole Bayer Sager

Italian Lyrics by Tony Renis & Alberto Testa

Through the years, “The Prayer” has become one of the most loved, successful and covered songs in David Foster’s huge catalogue. This poignant, thoughtful composition was co-written by The Hitman with his friend and legendary lyricist, Carole Bayer Sager. Singer/Songwriter Tony Renis and Alberto Testa provided the beautiful Italian lyrics. The song was originally included in the 1998 animated movie, The Quest For Camelot, with two different versions; one sung by Andrea Bocelli and the other by Celine Dion. Eventually, the two superstars re-recorded the track as a duet and the match of such a timeless melody with two of the most beautiful voices of our era made “The Prayer” collect a Golden Globe and Academy Award nomination. “The Prayer” was also included on Dion’s These Are The Special Times and Bocelli’s Sogno.
