Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Lady Gaga, & John Legend Sound Divine Singing a Prayer

The Voice Coach alum John Legend, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, and Lady Gaga covered "The Prayer" by Dion and Bocelli with pianist Lang Lang. The results were stunning.

On April 18, 2020, some of the biggest names in music came together to deliver a timeless (and seamlessly edited) performance of "The Prayer," a song made famous in 1998 by Celine Dion and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Joining Dion and Bocelli were none other than Lady Gaga, Lang Lang, and The Voice alum John Legend — and the results speak for themselves. (Lang Lang, for the unfamiliar, is a world-renowned Chinese-born pianist.)

Make no mistake about it — this is still Dion and Bocelli's song. But the presence of Gaga and Legend's unmistakable, powerful vocals alongside Lang's piano skills elevates this iconic late-90s operatic-pop hit.

The song is known for its beauty and its high degree of difficulty — just ask America's Got Talent alum Terry Fator, who pulled it off with grace in 2023. 

Everything to know about "The Prayer" by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli

Originally recorded in 1998 as two separate solo songs — Dion singing in English and Bocelli in Italian — as part of the soundtrack to the movie Quest For Camelot, the duet version featuring both artists was released a year later. The back-and-forth nature of the track's vocals is perfectly suited to highlight the strengths of both Dion and Bocelli, resulting in a powerful song that evokes emotion from even the most casual listener.
