3 House of Flying Daggers

And Jackie Evancho's rendition from her Dream With Me CD and Dream With Me In Concert DVD will leave you breathless.. seriously, if you have never seen it, do yourself a favour, just Google "evancho lovers" for a YouTube version.. then go buy her CDs and DVDs.. and go see her in concert.. you'll be glad you did.. she is that good..

"Lovers" is the title of this mystical song of love lost by Shigeru Umebayashi. It was originally performed by Kathleen Battle.

Jackie Evancho's version from her PBS Great Peformances "Dream With Me - In Concert" is compelling. Traditional Chinese instruments: Zheng (zither), Erhu (two-string fiddle), Dizi (bamboo flute), and Japanese Taiko (drums) group, plus full orchestra are incorporated in this great arrangement
