Decades later, the powerful words still ring true in the hearts of so many around the world.
The song was written in both English and Italian for artists Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli to sing solo, respectively. Later, the two superstars came together for an incredible duet of this beautiful song that received rave reviews.
