I heard a version of The Prayer recently on satellite radio that was Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, and Charlotte Church. Is there a tract of that out there somewhere? I'd love to get a download of that version. Any info on this would be appreciated! Thanks I love this site!Melissa - Jonesboro, Ar
