“The best songs come through you and not from you,” says David Foster, Grammy award winning composer [and musical genius]. In July 2012 Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins guest starred with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for the annual Pioneer Day Concert in Salt Lake City where she performed one of David Foster’s most famous compositions, “The Prayer”. Just prior to her performance, the audience was treated to a video introduction from the with composer himself. It was a magical moment, and I’m happy that I can share the video of that interview, and Jenkins’ performance with you today.
“Our desire and our need to sing; there’s something that resonates in the body with that sound that’s supposedly healing. Music is so powerful that I believe it helped bring down the [Berlin] wall! A song comes when the feeling can’t be said with dialogue.” – David Foster
David Foster’s song “The Prayer” truly brings healing to the soul, not only for those who hear it performend, but also to the performers who sing it. I love to sing this song, and I love it’s message of faith, peace and hope. – MoSop
