This great rendition of, and tribute to, George Harrison's My Sweet Lord.

I'm not usually too crazy about re-do's of original songs when done by others, but "My Sweet Lord" was well done. Enjoyed the Isaac's too.

Procal Harem, Gary Brooker's voice still has it! 2006 live in Denmark, he is age 61 here.
(He is still alive and kicking currently age 73.)

He starts to sing at about 1.30 minutes. I think it's awesome. It just whisks you away into another place.

I am absolutely in love with these two musicians, their uniqueness and then harmonize beautifully together, Ed went to Tuscany in Italy,
to Andrea Bocelli's home and music studio, where Ed learned Italian to the words to his song and then...they sang so beautifully together.

It's a bit close to my heart, Andrea reading music in braille, as my first encounter with music was in braille at the tender age of 9, my father's
first cousin came to visit us in Melbourne from Italy, he was a blind musician, and I recall how he set his music up on the stand, and would
feel with his fingers the braille music, and I would also, to understand it. He went to perform in a Melbourne TV show back then called IMT (In Melboune Tonight)
It was from there that I then went into playing music and by age 12was seemingly able to pick up any instrument in Allens World of Music back then in Melbourne, and play it!! It was amazing!
I went onto have music theory exams at London College School of Music, and my old fashioned certificate proudly hangs up above the old goanna.
Director of this school of music was Dr. W. S. Lloyd Webber. (Andrew Lloyd Webber's father).
Have a look at how Ed is fascinated with Andrea reading his music via braille, not every musician has a chance to witness that. I was a very young fortunate to do so back then.

I used to watch her on Young Talent time when I was about 5 (she was a similar age ) and I used to swear I'd marry her one day.

At least you can admire her anytime on TV or on youtube etc. She is an amazing talent. Did you see her on the show "Who do you think you are" about searching for ancestors and their lives, it was quite an experience for her, not overly a good one when she found out about the hardship her grandfather went through, and she was young, all she remembered was how stern he was. But now, she cried, and understood, and wishes she could hug him.

Both so excellent in their own ways! The first one with the 2 guitars and banjo, what an amazing sound, awesome!
The second one, really hits home, the lyrics, I went a bit teary. How long is your son deployed for Seth?
