There are so many country songs that you could call iconic, but when you hear the first few notes of “Help Me Make It Through the Night,“ it’s guaranteed you’ll be singing. This is precisely what Michael Bublé did, and in true Bublé fashion, it had to be a duet that leaves you breathless. This recording from 2018 features him and a previously little known singer performing a wonderful rendition of this duet.
Over the years, Bublé has sang with some of the most talented voices in the industry including Barbra Streisand and Jennifer Hudson. However, this particular song needed a different voice. The perfect voice.
After watching The Greatest Showman with his family, Bublé knew he’d found the voice he’d been looking for. Of course, the actress didn’t do the actual singing in the movie. So, Bublé had to do a little YouTube sleuthing to uncover the actual artist.
That artist turned out to be Loren Allred, the voice behind the hit song “Never Enough” from the movie The Greatest Showman. Allred had that perfect voice he’d searched for, perfect for a duet rendition of “Help Me Make It Through the Night”, originally written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson.
He knew he needed to convince Allred to sing with him!
With his son’s battle with cancer and taking a sabbatical for his own health, Bublé has had a tough run. In an interview with TODAY, Bublé explained that the last few years outside of the recording booth had been so hard. He also had to learn patience and understand that it’s not the small curveballs that life throws at you that matters.
He was thrilled to return to the studio and knew that “Help Me Make It Through the Night” was just the song he needed to record.
Of course, after coming across Allred, he knew he had to get her into the recording studio with him. Allred, for her part, was ecstatic to be included in the duet, singing alongside one of her favorite artists.
Their voices meld, swirling through every note, giving the rendition a haunting quality that leaves you with goosebumps!
The results make it evident that Bublé found the perfect partner for this song. They breathe new life into this iconic favorite. You need to make sure your friends and family know as well!
