A group of young boys in a pure white robes stand in bright stage looking at darkened audience. They are about to sing “From a Distance” live on at Royal Albert Hall.
This amazing song has topped the charts when Bette Midler sang it after it’s first release by another singer in Ireland. The lyrics reflects the songwriter’s faith.
“From a distance there is harmony and it echoes through the land. It’s the voice of hope; it’s the voice of peace; it’s the voice of every man. From a distance we all have enough and no one is in need, and there are no guns, no bombs and no disease, no hungry mouths to feed … God is watching us from a distance.”
