Thumbs up "You Raise Me Up"

This post is mainly for the Catholic Planet Music Fans out there

A moving and inspirational song which I have found to be good to play at a funeral is called “You Raise Me Up”.
There are several good renditions of it from various artists, my favourites being:-

WestLife & IL Divo Mix - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL2Sqg2G1lQ

Josh Groban, he is son of a Jewish American father. His father converted to Christianity upon marriage, and Groban was raised an Episcopalian. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-preA4Eq70

and

Hayley Westernra in Celtic Woman - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQP2KK5RBHY
(She is fifth lady at the far end )

Hayley Westernra’s album 'Pure' made it to No.1 on the classical charts in the UK in 2003 and has been certified 10x platinum in NZ, making her the best-selling artist, regardless of genre, in history within her home country of New Zealand.
She was born in Christchurch, where I also lived for 16 years.
Her 22nd birthday is on 10th April 2009!

She has featured on BBC’s Song’s of Praise program with songs like Prayer, Heaven, Whispering Hope, Ave Maria, Amazing Grace, Pie Jesu etc..
Perhaps another Christian megahit in the making when she turns 22!

Default My Favorite, of course.

Il Divo, Josh Groban, Hayley Westernra, sure.., they are my favorite singer. I have "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban, very good song, imagine that the word "you" in the song is "You(God)", feels nice and good.

Yesterday, I found a very fast way of recording your favourite online FLASH music video files onto computer or DVD, without having to buy special software to do it.
Simply copy and paste the website URL from your browser for the song you wish to record :-
e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdxRmcgsKDQ
into the box field of this website called http://vixy.net/ , its fantastic and its also free .
Today is a Public Holiday for me - Monday (Labour Weekend), so it will allow a bit time to do this
