Sarah Brightman

My brother and I know how much my mom loves Sarah Brightman, so we surprised mom with tickets to her concert last night in Dallas. It was amazing. SHE is amazing. If you aren't familiar with Sarah, she was married to Andrew Lloyd Webber (the world-renowned British composer)...He actually wrote the part of Christine, from the Phantom of the Opera, FOR SARAH- his wife at the time...which fully exploited her stunning vocal range. How amazing is that?!...and to hear her sing these songs in person is absolutely breath-taking.

Here is a video of Sarah Brightman performing "The Phantom of the Opera" with Antonio Banderas a couple of years ago...


...and one of my absolute favorite songs..."Time to Say Goodbye"


"Time to Say Goodbye" duet with Andrea Bocelli

I have loved Sarah Brightman ever since discovering Phantom of the Opera on Broadway! A favorite of mine is her "Deliver Me"

I walked down the isle to Time to Say Goodbye at my wedding. It was beautiful. My aunt sang it and did an amazing job. I know it sounds funny to anyone who doesn't know the song, but the words are actually taking about how it is time to say goodbye to a part of your life and move on. And our first dance was to There for Me (I think that is the title). LOVE her, we went to a concert, but it was just her, I wish it had been with a male also, but it was awesome.

I thought I was the only one who liked Sarah Brightman. Not really, but I hardly ever hear anyone mention her. She is my most favorite singer. What talent! Thank you for sharing these clips!!!! Love em!!

Thank you for showing me Sarah Brightman.... WOW that was incredible! I LOVE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA but I have never seen or heard her sing the song.. I was feeling chills what a truly amazing voice! Great gift! Hope the kiddies are doing well.

When I was little, my parents introduced me and my brothers to Phantom of the Opera. I remember when my dad bought the record!!! How funny is that? Years later, we ended up with the Andre Bocelli CD with his duet with Sarah Brightman...I couldn't stop listening to it! I would play "Time to Say Goodbye" on repeat for hours! I haven't heard it in years though so thanks for posting it! It's funny to read the comment above that someone walked down the aisle to that song b/c I always thought it would be neat for a bride to walk down the aisle with her father to that song!

jealous, that is all I can say! She has so much talent and Phantom is my all time favorite!

Sorry, I've come back. I just wish everyone could have been at the wedding. Really listen to this song and you can picture it. Everyone else marched down during the beginning of the song - then at the crecedo when they both start singing and the march in the back ground picks up, that is when the doors were opened and there was me and my dad's. And right after that wonderful end...can't you just hear, "We are here today to witness the marriage...." I would totally recommend it for anyone getting married - people comment all the time about how unique it was and how they will never forget.

oh we love Sarah! We had floor seats for her Dallas concert! I was super excited. We saw her in the Harem tour too. Just awesome. Glad your mom got to go, it was an amazing concert!

Ryan loves her too...shhh, don't tell too many people! He loves Time To Say Goodbye, also! I will have to show him this!

Hi Suz!

I've been secretly following your blog for awhile. Your quads are precious!

Anyway, I decided to comment when I saw the YouTube of the duet with Andrea Bocelli. I LOVE this version, as does my dad. I remember him dropping my brother off at a hotel the night before he began military bootcamp, then playing this song and crying like a little baby. So sweet!

The Q. Family said...

Love her voice and love her singing with Andrea Bocelli!
