I’m joining in with Hugh’s fun Weekend Music Share feature on Hugh’s Views and News and this week’s choice is a song which marks a memorable event.
My choice this week is Bring Him Home from Les Misérables. A similar story to Hugh’s, except I was racing up the motorway one night in July 2012, hoping I’d get to the hospital in time for the birth of my grandson, listening to a concert version of the musical to keep me awake. When Bring Him Home came on it just seemed so appropriate (we knew the baby would be a boy)
I found this clip of my favourite Jean Valjean, John Owen Jones, singing the song. Every time I hear Bring Him Home now it reminds me of that journey.
JOJ was the youngest actor to play Valjean and reprised the role in the revival on Broadway in, I think, 2007.
Hope you enjoy 🙂 And I did make it – with less than an hour to spare!
