The Prayer

I don't know what I was looking for on YouTube, but in the process I came across this duo. At the time they auditioned for Britian's Got Talent in 2012, Jonathan Antoine was seventeen and Charlotte Jaconelli was sixteen.  They sang "The Prayer", a song originally done by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion.

I watched this while I was taking my thirty minute break in Cuba, Missouri, in the middle of the night, with a smile on my face, a swell in my heart, and a tear in my eye.

I'm a total sap.  And this performance moved me.  I don't follow Britian's Got Talent, and usually only find out about these things only after the whole world has posted about it on Facebook or Twitter, or I read an article somewhere.  I'm so thrilled to have stumbled upon them.  These two young people are incredible.  

They came in second place on the show (to a dancing dog!) and have since put out two albums together.  In February of this year they split as a singing duo  - each getting solo contracts with Sony - to pursue their personal musical styles.
