Did you ever stumble upon something that you can't believe happened without you ever knowing about it? This happened to me today when I found this video of Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti singing a song to the Blessed Mother. Not only were they singing, but Eric Clapton actually wrote the song! It seems that he was driven to his knees during a rehab stay while struggling to overcome his substance abuse. Here are some of the lyrics:
Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight I feel broken in two.
I've seen the stars fall from the sky.
Holy mother, can't keep from crying.
Oh I need your help this time,
Get me through this lonely night.
Tell me please which way to turn
To find myself again.
Holy mother, hear my prayer,
Somehow I know you're still there.
Send me please some peace of mind;
Take away this pain.
Here is "Holy Mother", as performed by Eric Clapton and Luciano Pavarotti:
