Sarah Brightman's Hymn for the world
What do you do when the sky is the limit? For Sarah Brightman, the world's best-selling soprano of all-time, you push beyond the sky and set your sights on space.
After training to go into space aboard the International Space Station, Brightman's highly-publicized 10-day trip had to be cancelled and, in her own words, she was left feeling "vulnerable and depleted."
Now, three years later, she's bounced back with her most uplifting and optimistic album yet, Hymn. Brightman joins q's Tom Power to reflect on how music helped her feel whole again.
Brightman's new album, Hymn, comes out Friday, November 9. She'll be launching a world tour this month, which will bring her back to North American soon.
