Initially performed by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion, “The Prayer” is a beautiful duet that has won over millions of folks around the world. The Italian tenor and Canadian diva’s rendition of this beloved song has been covered by artists across the globe.
Though the version between Bocelli and Dion is the most well known of them all, there’s one performance of it that turned out to be quite extraordinary.
Katherine McPhee was a winner of one season of the hit reality television show American Idol. She was able to perform the song with the legendary Bocelli on stage at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay in 2008, and she nailed it!

You have no choice but to be incredibly moved by this powerful duet. Their talents came together for one truly magical night, and this video is sure to touch your heart.
