The One World: Together at Home special on Saturday (April 18) ended with a stunning finale, as Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Lang Lang, Andrea Bocelli and John Legend united (virtually, of course) to perform Dion and Bocelli’s 1999 hit duet “The Prayer.”
World-renowned concert pianist Lang Lang accompanied the four singers, as Dion, Gaga and Bocelli in particular pulled off a moving three-part harmony.
“The Prayer,” which was originally recorded by Dion and Bocelli in two separate solo versions for the 1998 movie Quest for Camelot, was then released in 1999 as an airplay single. It went on to receive an Academy Award nomination for best original song in 1999, and a Grammy Award nomination for best pop collaboration with vocals in 2000.
