Sarah Brightman Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Sarah has had two miscarriages, but accepts this decision of fate that has been put on her.

    • In 2007, Sarah Brightman performed the theme song "I Will Be With You" for the 10th Pokémon movie Dialga VS Palkia VS Darkrai alongside Chris Thompson. Renamed The Rise of Darkrai in English, this was the first Pokémon film to have a theme song in English. "I Will Be With You" was originally sung by Norwegian singer Sissel and Espen Lind and was originally titled "Where The Lost Ones Go."

    • Sarah's single - Time to Say Goodbye - became the biggest-selling single in Germany in 1997, where it stayed on the charts for an period of 98 weeks, selling 2.5 million copies.

    • Sarah's single with Andrea Bocelli, Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro), got to #2 in the British singles charts in May 1996 and remained there for 14 weeks.

    • Sarah's boyfriend Frank Peterson is part of the pop group Enigma.

    • David Caddick: What is amazing about Sarah is that she has two voices, really. She can produce a pop, contemporary sound, but she can also blossom out into a light soprano. The soprano part of her voice can go up to an E natural above high C. She doesn't sing it full out, but it is there. Of course, she has to dance while she is singing some of the time, so it's all the more extraordinary.

  • Quotes

    • Sarah Brightman: (on her role in Phantom of the Opera) I've always felt as if I was Christine, because of her story. After all, she started in the chorus and from that she evolved into a singer, not a big operatic singer, but a singer with a pure and versatile voice which was classical...

    • Sarah Brightman: (on her album pictures for Classics) The opera world was shocked! But the image is very classical. It's taken from Botticelli's portrait of Venus, who's standing in a seashell with her hair covering her body. It's very sensual. It represents the vulnerable side of me. Although I'm not wearing any clothes, it comes across very well.

    • Sarah Brightman: (on her target audience) I don't know who my audience is. People have said there is an integrity about me, and I think there is. I don't try to follow a trend. I have my own little path, and although I delve into things, I stay with what I am. I'm quite natural with it. Maybe people feel comfortable with that and they trust it, so they buy it. They'll come and see me in concert. I think I always do a good job in that area.

    • Sarah Brightman: (on her marriage to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber) It was such a creative time. Everything was happening very fast. He was writing, I was singing. He was inspired, and I was inspired. I didn't really have time to think about it. I didn't really have time to read things about it, either. I got a sense of things, which made me quite nervous at times. But, no, we were running all the time then, doing things. It was fun, but also a lot of pressure.

    • Sarah Brightman: (on her concerts) They're incredibly complicated...but also natural. I know what works, what doesn't work, all the old tricks.

    • Sarah Brightman: When I sing, I close my eyes. If I see a feather, everything is fine. Without this image in my mind, the sound is not 'truthful' enough and I must begin again. I have to. I first had this feeling, this instinct with 'The Phantom of the Opera' and since then have always listened to it.

    • Sarah Brightman: You do have to be fairly selfish when you have a gift. You cannot afford to let too many outside things get in the way.
