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.

    Release Date: 1991, Grammy Winner, Song of the Year, 1993

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.

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.
