Beyonce Sings "Ave Maria" -- VIDEO

Beyonce Sings

Beyonce (in Donna Karan) sings “Ave Maria” (her own version of the song off her album I Am…Sasha Fierce) at the 2008 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Rockefeller Center. Sample lyrics and video below!

She was lost in so many different ways
Out in the darkness with no guide
I know the cost of a losing hand
Never thought the grace of god go high

I found heaven on earth
You were my last, my first
And then here this voice inside
Ave maria

More pics from the performance here.

    #3, i dont think whitney could have dont that. mariah and whitney like to over do it. beyonce kept it simple and thats why its soo beautiful. it didnt need all the “ooohs’ and “aaaahs” long notes those singers always do in there songs like xtina

    This is NOT Ava Maria! It’s her lyrics with “Ava Maria” thrown in to make it sound like the original.

    Her version is alright… It’s a different song all together, & should not be mistaken for the original “Ava Maria”. That one is in Latin & depending on who sings it & the emotion/power of the voice can literally bring one to tears. The best version is Aaron Neville’s – His voice brought me to tears.

    That’s not to say there haven’t been other versions as well: Shakespeare too. But, as I said before… Aaron Neville’s is the BEST!

    Here is the link to a page with Latin lyrics, followed by English one’s. “Ava Maria” is a Marian Prayer: “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee…”

    Talent in any music group, she can sing country, rock and roll, opera, R&B, pop, classical you name it she can sing it.

    This woman here is what entertainment is all about, true talent and she has earned her title, respect and her pocket book…

    Id say it was a terrible version of the song, but it wasnt even Ave Maria so I guess it was just plain terrible. Who changes this song??? Also, her dress was inappropriate when St. Patrick’s is right behind her.
