This father and daughter from Utah perform a duet of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli’s The Prayer from their kitchen table to bring joy to viewers during these volatile times.
Mat Shaw and his daughter Savanna wanted to spread a message of hope after the 15-year-old’s choir canceled rehearsals due to the coronavirus.
According to The Daily Signal, they began singing when the rapid spread of COVID-19 meant that more and more people have been self-isolating at home.
Their voices are beautiful individually, but when they come together they complement each other perfectly. It is a very sincere and powerful performance. It is also is a great display of the bond between a dad and his daughter, showing how fortunate people are who are able to spend time with their family during this period.
“I think it’s been touching for some people to see a family, a father-daughter relationship, enjoying their talents and spending time together, it reminds them of their own relationships,” Shaw told The Daily Signal.
Many people don’t realize “The Prayer” was originally created in the 90s for the film “Quest for Camelot,” and was to be sung by Canadian singer Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli, in Italian.
It famously won the 1999 Golden Globe for Best Original Song before Josh Groban later recorded his own version which was equally as famous.
