If I Can Dream

Hi everyone, it has been a long time this blog has been hibernating (nope, it is not dead) because I have been real busy the last few months.

Well, just as in my previous two blog entries, i just want to share a video which I really it goes:

Celine Dion and Elvis Duet on American Idol 2007:

I have not been watching American Idol for long long time, I actually missed this back in 2007!!

This song was recorded by Presley in June 1968, two months after Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, this song is based on the famous King's "I Have a Dream" speech

Elvis's original performance:

or (I can't seems to find a clearer version of this video):

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why cant my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why wont that sun appear

Were lost in a cloud
With too much rain
Were trapped in a world
Thats troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart theres a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, theres a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
