“As a modern man, I have sat in concert halls and watched huge audiences floating dazed on the voice of a great singer. Alone in a dark box I have heard far off as if ascending out of some dark stairwell the guttural whisperings and bestial coughings out of which that voice arose. Again, I have sat under the slit dome of a mountain observatory and marveled, as the great wheel of the galaxy turned in all its midnight splendor, that the mind in the course of three centuries has been capable of drawing into its strange, non-spatial interior that world of infinite distance and multitudinous dimensions.” Loren Eiseley: The Immense Journey
As a soloist, Andrea Bocelli has the ability to move audiences to unspeakably beautiful levels of human harmony. However, performing in a duet, he can also masterfully complement his partner. In “The Prayer,” with Tori Kelly, even when they are singing in unison, the gender divide clearly celebrates two voices. However, when they effortlessly glide into two-part-harmony, they raise the level of spiritual intensity to new heights.
I join Loren Eiseley and celebrate the gift of music and the ability to; …float dazed on the voices of Andrea Bocelli and Tori Kelly.
