From Performing Songwriter:Â I have heard â€œFrom a Distanceâ€ in many languages. I have felt it in Braille. I have heard it on music boxes and in elevators. I have read it on greeting cards and in childrenâ€™s books. And it has been played for astronauts in space. It is nothing short of a miracle, and I am never anything but amazed and grateful that the miracle happened to me.
