A soft melody of inspiration hits number one for 10 weeks 197



View Profile

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.

You may have heard this song being played at church or at a wedding….

Can you guess this beautiful melody?
