I remember being wowed by Jackie Evancho’s performance on America’s Got Talent all those years ago, and recently came across her YouTube channel showcasing her more recent work. I hadn’t heard the original version of this song, and I’ve yet to read the book that inspired it either, but I think the singer’s operatic vocals are the perfect match for it.
Anyway, hearing this song puts me in a good state of mind for writing. Hope it inspires you as well! 🙂
