Rolf Løvland wrote this song, Brendan Graham wrote later the lyrics. Both Eurovision veterans and winner. Brian Kennedy provided the first published vocals to the song, later made a big hit by the version of Josh Groban. Now there are over 125 covers of it in various languages. Another Eurovision star, late Jan Werner Danielsen also recorded it as he replaced Brian on Secret Garden's world tour when he fell ill but that has not been released.Elisabeth Andreasson performed it in his funeral with Rolf. Brian Kennedy later re-recorded the song as well. Westlife did it, Sissel Kyrkjebo did it, Michael Ball did it. Paul Potts and Il Divo recorded it in Spanish. It has also become a regular song for various Idols and Talent show hopefuls. And this brings us to Markku Laamanen, Finland's answer to Susan Boyle in Britain's Got Talent. The song has been recorded in Finnish by - yet another - Eurovision star Kari Tapio. Is this the song with the most Eurovision connections ever or what? And wasn't this sent to the Norvegian selection and rejected? Was it sung by Wenche Myhre? Or was it Ireland? Who knows better? Wikipedia has all or most of the zillions of versions and occasions it has been used.
