Heavenly Voice

If you haven't heard it, listen to Celine Dion sing "Oh Holy Night". You can find it on the CD "These Are Special Times". Her voice is out of this world. Speaking of out of this world, Maureen's cousin had a Jesuit priest celebrate Christmas Eve mass at his house. During his homily, the priest was talking about different Christmas songs and said that Karen Carpenter singing "Little Alter Boy" sounded like an angel, and if angels didn't sound like Karen Carpenter, then he didn't want to go to heaven. He followed that by saying it was probably blasphemous, but he was a Jesuit and could get away with saying things like that.

Celine and Karen's voices are wonderful. One song I have always liked is the one sung by Jiminy Cricket in Pinnochio:

When you wish upon a star, it makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires, will come to you
If your heart is in your dreams, no request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star, as dreamers do
Fate is kind, she brings to those who love, the sweet fulfillment of their secret love
Oh, like a boat out of the blue, fate steps in and see’s you through
When you wish upon a star, your dream comes true

I love Celine's album too.... But my new favorite is Josh Groban's. I got it last year and he sings O Holy Night AND Ave Maria so beautifully!! (Male angels?)

Jiminy, you are CUTE but I'm glad there is more than "fate"! :)
