A soft melody of inspiration hits number one for 10 weeks

This famous ballad was released in 1977, peaking at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Soon after, a female artist recorded the single, which became an enormous success, topping the Billboard 100 chart today for a (then) record-setting ten consecutive weeks.

It went on to win three awards such as an Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Golden Globe Award for Best Original song and a Grammy Award.

Written as a love song, it can be interpreted by many fans as a song of inspiration and a song written for God.
