Title: Pray for Peace (single)
Post by: CWazyTom on October 01, 2016, 11:38PM
Chloe's working on a single called "Pray for Peace" with Eamonn McCrystal and Rita Wilson.

Written by Linda Thompson and Bernie Herms.

It's scheduled to be released October 14th.

Here's a sneak peak:

That is really beautiful! Is it an original or a cover?

I'm not 100% sure, but it's an original, I think.

I got it on iTunes.

It's really, REALLY good!

Like ... even better than I was expecting!



Note: The following review might contain some spoilers.


Mini-Review:

It's a very nice song. The lyrics are timely and uplifting. The singing is exceptional, of course. The melody itself is a pleasant combination of tenderness power power. The emotion of the three singers is well-reinforced by a mixture of touching piano accompaniment, fulfilling orchestration. The song has incredible powerful swells.

It's somewhat reminiscent of some of the great songs of the 90s and late 80s. I'm reminded of "From a Distance" (Bette Midler), one of my favourite songs. It also has some similarities in style and structure to some of Celine Dion's songs, in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this song!

Definitely worth getting.

Just in case you weren't pumped enough about this song, here's a video that practically gave me goosebumps:

Ooo, now this is interesting too.

It looks like Chloë is going to be in other songs on Eamonn's album "And So It Goes" (Nov 4) as well

It's stated on his site that Chloë (and Rita Wilson) are guest singers

NEW SINGLE "PRAY FOR PEACE"  (OCTOBER 14TH) AND ALBUM "AND SO IT GOES" (NOVEMBER 4TH) FEATURES VARIOUS GUEST STARS INCLUDING RITA WILSON AND CHLOË AGNEW


I wasn't sure if that just meant Chloë and Rita were just in Pray for Peace (which is one of the songs on the album), or other songs as well.

But from the video above, Chloë appears to be singing "We've Got Tonight" (Bob Seger), so she's in at least 2 songs on the album.

Interesting side-note about Pray for Peace ... Linda Thompson, who co-wrote Pray for Peace, has also worked with Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and David Foster.

So I guess that's why I was reminded of them when listening to Pray for Peace. That and Chloë's out-of-this-world vocals ;)

Eamonn McCrystal is pretty awesome and based on the previews I've heard (and based on "Pray for Peace") you might want to get the whole album anyways, but if you're a hard-core Chloë-or-nothing fan, those two songs above will be of the greatest interest to you.

The rest of the Eamonn McCrystal album "And So It Goes" releases on Friday (November 4th).

Chloë's in We've Got Tonight.
