My Prayers for Anthony Callea

I can't believe how long it has been since I first fell in love with the voice of Anthony Callea. In 2004, the amazingly gifted Callea was on a show called Australian Idol, which, of course, I did not see, as I live in the US. However, in one of the rounds, he did a version of The Prayer that went viral on YouTube, and I caught it. Seven years later, I can watch a video of him singing that song, and I still get goosebumps. His voice, it is beyond incredible.

I keep hoping one day I am going to wake up and find the email in my inbox that tells me Anthony will be performing at a special show in New York, or even Philly. And that he brings along his dreamy partner, Tim Campbell. Wow, did I just type that in, and not hit the delete key? Oh, well... To continue the celebration of what I love, here is the angelic Anthony Callea singing Here I Go Again, which just tugs at my core every time I hear him sing it.


  1. Thanks for yet another lovely piece bringing Anthony to the attention of those who don't know him yet. I was there for that performance of Here I Go Again and it was unbelievable. I hope one day you get to experience him live as that is quite another dimension again.


  2. Howard Thank You so much for sharing your wonderful thoughts about the amazing talents of Anthony Callea and posting these beautiful songs. Like you even after all these years I also still get goosebumps every time I listen to Anthony's heavenly voice singing The Prayer. Here I Go Again is also another of Anthony's beautiful songs with such amazing lyrics. Anthony & his phenomenal talent has bought me such pleasure & joy Howard & I also really hope you get the chance to see him live one day. Seeing Anthony perform live is a breathtaking emotional rewarding experience that stays in your memory & touches your heart strings & makes you long for more.

  3. Mairanya, thanks for stopping by. I can't help it, I am addicted to his music and that voice!

    Nonnapat, Fingers crossed I do get to hear him live one day! I'm game!
