Tears in Heaven

Music by Eric Clapton

Originally Performed by Eric Clapton

"Tears in Heaven" is a song by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings, from the 1991 Rush film soundtrack. The song was written about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor. In an interview with Sue Lawley in 1992, Clapton said of the song "There is a song that Iíve written for a movie, but in actual fact it was in the back of my head but it didnít really have a reason for being until I was scoring this movie which I did a little while ago and then it sort of had a reason to be. And it is a little ambiguous because it could be taken to be about Conor but it also is meant to be part of the film." Conor fell from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment building owned by his mother's friend on March 20, 1991. Clapton arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident.

Billy Joel's pop hit from 1983 "The Longest Time" is a perennial favorite and evokes an even earlier time in America's pop history. From 1973, the pop hit "Shambala" by Three Dog Night is a buoyant song full of tasty harmonies and a warm gospel groove that will infuse your concert with the hopefulness and joy. This "vocals only" edition will be especially effective for choirs of all types! The intimacy and directness of a cappella singing create a special emotional atmosphere in this tender setting of the Grammy award-winning pop hit "Tears In Heaven" by Eric Clapton. You will create a magical concert moment with the gentle guitar-style accompaniment recreated by the vocals and the heartfelt lyrics. The #1 hit from 1967 "Groovin'" by the Young Rascals in a smooth vocals-only setting perfectly captures the relaxed slow groove of the song with an easy vocal accompaniment and a irresistible solo.

Pull the heart strings with these touching ballads. "Seven Bridges Road" - This iconic song by the Eagles from the late 1960s speaks directly to the heart with thrilling vocal harmonies that will showcase your ensemble at their best! There are stars in the Southern sky/Southward as you go/There is moonlight and moss in the trees/Down the Seven Bridges Road. "Somewhere Out There" originally appeared in the 1986 animated film An American Tail with the single performed by singers Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram. The a cappella choral textures communicate the touching lyric and classic melody of this beloved ballad perfectly in a setting that is accessible, yet musically satisfying! Opening with a lyric solo line accompanied by the ensemble, the melody then passes between the soprano and tenor before modulating, and moving steadily forward to the expressive final chords. "Tears in Heaven" - The intimacy and directness of a cappella singing create a special emotional atmosphere in this tender setting of the Grammy award-winning pop hit by Eric Clapton. You will create a magical concert moment with the gentle guitar-style accompaniment recreated by the vocals and the heartfelt lyrics. "Right Here Waiting" - This 1989 #1 pop hit by Richard Marx will provide a wonderful romantic moment in a Valentine's concert, spring concert or any time you need a special expression of love! The background vocals create a warm texture and the melodic phrases will warm the heart! "u Are So Beautiful" - Beautiful is what you will say when you hear this gorgeous a cappella setting of the pop hit by Billy Preston, originally recorded by Joe Cocker.
