Sarah Brightman

International singing superstar, Sarah Brightman returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the first time since 1999! Of the tour, Brightman says fans should “expect the unexpected!” HYMN: Sarah Brightman In Concert World Tour began in South America and will include over 125 shows, on five continents throughout 2020.

HYMN’s mystical, uplifting tone is set with its title track — a song by British prog-rock band Barclay James Harvest. The release also encompasses songs by such modern composers as Eric Whitacre (Fly To Paradise), Japanese superstar musician and songwriter Yoshiki (Miracle), and German DJ Paul Kalkbrenner (Sky and Sand). The album closes with a new rendition of Brightman’s signature smash duet with Andrea Bocelli, Time To Say Goodbye, singing lyrics that she wrote herself, and sung in English for the first time.

Known for her three-octave range and for pioneering the classical-crossover music movement, Sarah Brightman has amassed global sales of more than 30 million units. The only artist to have simultaneously topped Billboard’s dance and classical music charts, Brightman has racked up more than 180 gold and platinum awards in over 40 countries. She is also known for her iconic star turn in The Phantom of the Opera, whose soundtrack has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Her duet with Bocelli, Time To Say Goodbye, became an international success selling 12 million copies worldwide. Brightman’s albums Eden, La Luna, Harem and Symphony were each chart-topping Billboard hits and accompanied by world tours. Additionally, Brightman has performed at such prestigious events as the 2007 Concert for Diana, the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
