Adrian and 11-year-old Emma-Jean Galliard are a father and daughter duo, they perform a variety of classical and popular songs cover. Listening to music can alleviate our stress in difficult times and hearing this beautiful rendition of “Time To Say Goodbye” is an uplifting experience.
It is a delight to hear the strength of Adrian’s vocal complementing the angelic voice of Emma-Jean. From their interactions in the duet, it is also lovely to see the bond between the father and daughter.
The song was first performed by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and he paired later with British soprano Sarah Brightman for the duet version. Interestingly, there was a video that mentioned wrongly that Adrian and Emma-Jean were related to Bocelli. They have clarified on their Facebook although they feel honoured, it is not true.
Beyond the wonderful vocals and melody, saying goodbye is never easy to people you care about. Lockdowns and safety measures have limited the usual way people handle separation during this emotionally difficult period.
Music is not the solution to all our issues, but it can help us positively. For example, one might have a cathartic effect like crying after hearing the above song. The emotional release is part of a healing process and we also wish to say goodbye to the coronavirus pandemic as soon as possible.
