Acclaimed pianist and songwriter Jim Brickman teamed up with superstar and four-time GRAMMY® Award winner Olivia Newton-John for a soul-stirring remake of the 1997 Brickman classic, ‘Valentine,’ marking 25 years since the song crested the charts.
The single is available on all digital streaming platforms scheduled specifically for the month of love.
The remake grew out of Brickman and Newton-John’s long standing friendship after touring and songwriting together, as well as their iconic live performance of the song on Brickman’s TV special, My Romance.
With Brickman’s masterful songwriting and Newton-John’s lush, heartfelt vocals the tender, love-charged piano ballad has certainly stood the test of time. Over these 25 years, the song has been used in hundreds of thousands of wedding ceremonies and been covered by artists all over the world.
“I was honored to collaborate with Jim Brickman by recording ‘Valentine’ and releasing this special remix single for the song’s 25th anniversary,” said Newton-John. “His music is so romantic and this song in particular is perfect for couples to celebrate the most romantic day of the year.”
Jim Brickman has earned 22 #1 albums, five #1 hits, and 34 Top 20 radio singles since his debut No Words album in 1994. In addition, Brickman earned GRAMMY® nominations for his albums Peace (2003) and Faith (2009), a GMA Dove Award, two SESAC Songwriter of the Year Awards, and a Canadian Country Music Award.
