Tony Baker from the Norwich circle of Catenians has played a starring role in the promotional video for a new song by world-renowned singers Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion.
The video for the song – called The Prayer – was created by Tony’s son Bart through his video production company White Wolf Films (whitewolffilms.co.uk/).
Bart has worked previously with Italian tenor Bocelli, and was asked to come up with a video to promote The Prayer at short notice during the lockdown period.
The song is a duet between Bocelli and Canadian singer Dion.
The song was originally recorded in two solo versions for the 1998 film Quest for Camelot, in English by Dion and in Italian by Bocelli. It is a request for peace, guidance and kindness, making it a common choice for memorial services.
Bart had the idea of bringing people together through video chat to produce an online version of the song. Both of the singers have a large fan base, and the YouTube video has so far attracted nearly a million views.
Several Catenian brothers in Province 2 have already seen this and complimented all concerned. One commented that he was very moved by it and told Tony that he should send a box of tissues to all those who view it.
Tony commented: “Obviously, we are very proud of Bart’s accomplishment and we are glad to be able to bask in some of this reflected glory. Along with several other Bocelli and Dion fans Val and I were asked if we could join in the production, which we gladly did.”
