I BELIEVE IN YOU ~ CELINE DION AND IL DIVO
"I Believe in You (Je crois en toi)" is a duet between Céline Dion and Il Divo, released as the third and last single from Dion's On ne change pas album, and first and only from Il Divo's Ancora. At first, on January 23, 2006 "I Believe in You" was released as a radio single in the United States. The commercial single was issued May 1, 2006 in France and Switzerland. It was also released as a radio single in Canada, in May 2006. Dion and Il Divo promoted "I Believe in You" in various French television shows, performing it in late 2005."I Believe in You" was featured on the official 2006 FIFA World Cup album, called Voices from the FIFA World Cup, which was released on May 20, 2006. There are two released versions of the song, the version released on Dion's On ne change pas album, and the other on Il Divo's album. The difference is that "Someday I'll find you" is sung by a different member of Il Divo on each album. On Dion's album, the line is sung by Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, and on Il Divo's album it is sung by Spanish baritone Carlos Marín. This is due to them swapping lines, where the other line swapped is part of the harmony in Dion's verse (the second verse). A third version performed entirely in English (Dion's verse included) was also recorded, but never released. Il Divo performs this version in their concerts with tenor David Miller singing Dion's parts.
