Anthony Callea: 'The Prayer' and 'Mary's Boy Child': Carols By Candlelight 2014

If you're not moved by this, check your pulse. Even if you aren't Catholic/Christian/religious.

Just performed at the 2014 Carols By Candlelight by the inimitable Anthony Callea, it is powerful and moving. 'Mary's Boy Child':

And then, this happened at the end. 'The Prayer':

Said Anthony when he posted the performance the next day on social media:

"Christmas Eve performance of The Prayer.... I was SO bloody nervous as the pressure was on!"

It was the first time he'd sung the song for which he is renowned… in 10 years.

It was Anthony's debut single and is the fastest-selling single by an Australian artist, held the number 1 spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for five weeks, a record for the debut single of an Australian Idol contestant, and was the second-highest selling Australian single of the last decade.

Anthony, you smashed it, then and now.
