BLAST FROM BRIGHTMAN'S PAST TO BENEFIT COVID-19 CHARITIES
5/5/20

Sarah Brightman performed with the English National Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London in in September 1997. That performance, not commercially available, will be streamed on YouTube Saturday to raise funds for COVID-19 relief charities.

Brightman sang pieces by a wide range of composers—Puccini, Gershwin, Bernstein and Andrew Lloyd Webber, who backs her on piano while she sings his “Whistle Down the Wind.” Andrea Bocelli duets with Sarah on “Time to Say Goodbye”; Adam Clarke joins her for “Pie Jesu.”

“For many of us during lockdown these are reflective and introspective times, so I thought viewing a concert chosen from my performing past would be appropriate and bring you back to a special comforting moment in time,” Brightman said. “For me then, it was a pivotal period of transition, after which I experienced 20 years of an incredible life and career journey which I wasn’t expecting. Hopefully my performance of many hits and favorite pieces, along with special guests Andrea Bocelli and Andrew Lloyd Webber, will inspire many of you to contribute to one of these fine charities, who are both doing so much for people all over the world at this time.”

The full performance will premiere exclusively on Sarah's YouTube channel beginning 5/9 at noon PT/3pm ET and will be globally available for 72 hours.
