You Raise Me Up Natalie Di Luccio

With a mission to unite music in the East and West, she is in Khonoma, India’s first green village in Nagaland, Northeast India.

In Khonoma, she unites with musicians of the indigenous Angami tribe. Among them is Atso Chasie, who plays the Naga string instrument he invented, the Gei-Ü. She also collaborates with singers from the Phetsukiku club, who are equally comfortable performing local and global songs.

‘You Raise Me Up’ is a song composed by Secret Garden, the music was written by Rolf Løvland and the lyrics were composed by Brendan Graham.

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me

It was Josh Groban’s version which shot the song into fame and made it to #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in early 2004 and remained there for six weeks and was nominated for a 2005 Grammy award.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up’ To more than I can be

This song is always a great one to listen to, especially in times of difficulties and hardships. Today, we are blown away by this beautiful cover of it by Natalie Di Luccio and the talented singers and musicians from India’s Northeast.
