Favourite Band Piece / Composer:  The Prayer - Carole Bayer Sager [and] David Foster arr. Ian Jones

David Foster and Carole Bayer Sager wrote “The Prayer” for the soundtrack of the animated movie, “Quest For Camelot.” Since its initial release in 1998, “The Prayer” has become a popular standard around the world. The song’s inspirational lyrics carry a strong message of peace that are perfectly suited for our troubled times. 'A world where pain and sorrow will be ended, And every heart that’s broken will be mended, And well remember we are all Gods children Reaching out to touch you  Reaching to the sky.'
