You Raise Me Up

You Raise Me Up by Westlife was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, November 5, 2005 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Secret Garden, a Eurovision Song Contest winning instrumental duo, originally recorded this song in 2001 for their album Once in A Red Moon. Irishman Brian Kennedy contributed vocals. In the United States, the best known version is by Josh Groban, who got a big boost when he sang it on Oprah Winfrey's show in 2004. The Irish boyband Westlife was the 100th artist to record the song, and in 2005, their cover topped the UK chart and won UK Record of the Year. In the 2008 UTV documentary Westlife Back Home, the boys admitted that "You Raise Me Up" was most likely the song that saved their career, which some thought was on the wane at that stage.
