"I Believe/You'll Never Walk Alone" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocal(s).
This album, which is dedicated to the memory of Virginia Kelley, President Clinton's mother, opens with a sense of quiet sincerity in Barbra Streisand's restrained take on Rodgers and Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone," paired with an equally non-traditional version of the Frankie Laine hit, "I Believe," both of which set the tone for the remainder of HIGHER GROUND. Offerings range from show tunes and popular songs to traditional pieces like "The Water is Wide" and "Avinu Malkeinu," which is traditionally sung during Rosh Hashanah, and whose lyrics translate as "Cause all hate and oppression to vanish from the earth/Inscribe us for blessing in the Book of Life." HIGHER GROUND carries this sense of spirituality to a variety of levels, resulting in a very accessible and timeless collection of songs sung by one of the world's most popular divas, who is at her most powerful and passionate, her rich and expressive voice backed by a lush 70-piece orchestra.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (11/28/97, p.84) - "...the persistent strings-and-choir treatment on these 12 tunes...reduces the whole collection to one long, lush ballad that would be more at home over `The Prince Of Tides'' closing credits." - Rating: C
