    We bought this song, and I had three talented people sing it for a special concert. The singers need to have a good ear to sing the song, but if they do, it is an amazing piece of music. We loved the song.

    I bought this song after hearing some of it on the website; it sounds wonderful, but the parts are very strange and nonmelodic, which made it too hard to sing. It was probably a mistake for me to buy it, despite loving the sound of it.
