You know, it has been a bit too long since I last featured Anthony Callea, so I will just be doing a random post now, just cause I want to. I admit it, I can't stop listening to this brilliant young man. It all started several years ago when he appeared on Australian Idol. I couldn't watch it, but soon enough saw a clip of him performing The Prayer, and was hooked immediately. It made me watch other performances, including this bold and brave jazz take on Route 66.
I ordered the eponymous first album and had it imported over too me. It was worth the cost, cause I just loved it. That includes the second cut off the album, Rain.
That cut was followed immediately on the album by one of my favorites, Hurts So Bad. I was quite pleased to find this live version of the song.
And, of course, the song that brought him to my attention, The Prayer. I am sure he sang it everywhere, and might have gotten tired of it. But I can tell you, I never tire of it. Just stunning.
The first song I heard from the second album, A New Beginning, was Addicted To You. I was crazy about it, and couldn't wait for my copy of the album to make it's way across the Pacific Ocean.
