Ave Maria was written by Franz Schubert in 1825 with the original title of Ellens dritter Gesang [Ellen’s Third Song] as a part of a musical setting of Walter Scott‘s epic poem The Lady of the Lake. This version is based on the reworked version by Beyoncé on her 2008 album I Am… Sasha Fierce. It is a love song where you feel lost and alone in the world but coming home to your lover and they are your Heaven on Earth. Leanne gives us a beautifully sweet rendition of the song where she mixes the feelings of love of the lyrics with the reverence of the version that uses the Catholic hymn, and melodic majesty of the original music. This video was recorded from Maltese TV during the charity show Maratona Missjoni 2019, organized by Fondazzjoni U, a Maltese charity.
