Recently, a lovely rendition of the inspiring song “You Raise Me Up,” one of my all-time favorites, was the subject of an essay. This song has been covered by a variety of singers and artists over the years.
This song’s inspiration originated from the Irish-Norwegian duo Secret Garden. They composed and delivered the song. Then, in 2002, they played this song with Brian Kennedy, who at that point had a minor hit in the UK.
Only Josh Groban’s rendition of this song was able to make it a big hit in the US. The song then became quite well-known and was covered a lot, motivating millions of people all over the world.
The lyrics to this song are heartfelt and timeless, which is one of the main reasons it is a tremendous hit. This song is so well-known that it serves as the anthem for a Norwegian football team, was utilized by several figure skaters, and is frequently broadcast on television.
Anyone can identify to it in terms of the people that nourished, supported, and helped us through difficult times since it is so moving. We are grateful to them for helping us succeed, something we now take for granted.
Recently, YouTube star Peter Hollens sang this song. He began the song by singing it alone. The song was then joined by a large group of talented singers.
Much though Peter’s voice is powerful and lovely on its own, the song is even more lovely and touching when they all rose up their voices at once. They all sounded like angels. For a more intense and raw feel, they all sing a cappella.
