Alison Krauss & Union Station, “A Living Prayer”, on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

I’m not sure why I was watching The Tonight Show that night a few years ago, but this was how the show ended. It was the first time I had heard of Alison and Union Station, and wow, what an impression they made. What a talented group of musicians. What a voice she has.

This song became an instant favorite because of this performance. I come back to it again and again. There is something soothing about it, and yet when she hits certain notes on certain lyrics, I get chills. I absolutely love it.
