Eleven of the Costa del Sols finest singers banded together in collaboration with Rowetta on Saturday 13th February, and with just 4 days notice, and a month after the devastating earthquake, to record a charity single for Haiti at one of Europe´s top International Studios based in Marbella. Predominately widely unknown artists, and in cases raw talent; the first line and Italian duet sung by 15 year old Rebecca Tate. Banding together simply for the cause to help the people of Haiti, and on zero budget; a world away from the corporate music industry, we believe it has still resulted in a remarkable achievement.
A cover version of Céline Dion and Andrea Bocelli´s highly emotional song “The Prayer”, which won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song from the film Quest for Camelot in 1999; this charity version renamed “The Prayer for Haiti”. The single is initially released as an internet download only, royalty free, by kind permission of writers David Foster, Carole Bayer Sager & Andrea Bocelli.

This recording, parts sung in Italian, English and also Spanish, is a fantastic eclectic mix of singing styles, and features ITV´s X Factor finalist Rowetta, now acclaimed Tenor Stephen Lloyd-Morgan, Spain´s 15 year old WoWFactor runner-up Rebecca Tate, the equally brilliant voices of Mayte, Daniel Boland, The Unity Gospel Singers and the popular classical group Tres Divos.

Produced by Nick Holland & Stephen Lloyd-Morgan in association with Maurice Boland of Talk Radio Europe and Essential Marbella Magazine; they were inspired to record this single after the overwhelming response to Stephen & Rebecca singing The Prayer at The Gala Dinner for Haiti held at La Quinta Golf on 5th February organised by Maurice. A YouTube Video of the song also received over 500 hits in just a few days! You can view the video below:
The phenomenal generosity of so many has once again shown no bounds, allowing this single to be recorded, produced and promoted totally free. 100% of the proceeds from sales will go directly to the Ark Christian Fellowship, a part of the Child Care Ministries, which has had a presence in Haiti for over 8 years.

Some valuable comments from Antonia Muñoz – Alcaldesa de Manilva (Mayor of Manilva) – “The Prayer for Haiti”

“We are extremely proud and would very much like to convey our congratulations to the producers of the charity single (CD) `The Prayer for Haiti´. Resident British Expatriates from the Municipality of Manilva, Stephen Lloyd-Morgan and Nick Holland, have recorded this single in collaboration with Talk Radio Europe and Essential Marbella Magazine, to help the desperate orphans of Haiti and they hope to raise enough to build a new school. We very much commend their efforts and that of the entire expatriate community who are banding together to raise much needed funds for this worthy cause through the sale of this single(CD).” – 4th March 2010

Valuable comments from Jose Luis Hernández – Tourist Councilor Marbella Town hall regarding
“The Prayer for Haiti”

“Marbella City Council considers that the expat community is giving us an example of generosity and commitment in view of the magnitude of the devastation suffered by Haiti. Marbella can feel proud because —even in these moments of economic crisis— our society, and particularly our expat community, is giving such an evident proof of commitment with the suffering of human beings that did not have anything before the tragedy and, after it, the only thing they have is pain and hopelessness. We hope your fund raising initiative be as successful as possible. On behalf of Marbella City Council, receive our most sincere thanks and our acknowledgement for your humanitarian work.” – 4th March 2010
