KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - ChetBassetti performs A Thousand Years on Karaoke Showcase - I have always liked this song, so, I suggested this as a possible duet with Joyce..but..it was not in a good vocal range for me, so, I found the Boyce Avenue backing..but the song arrangement did not lend itself to obvious ways for a duet..but..Joyce somehow made it work!

Starlyter - Brad The title didn't ring a bell at first but when the track started playing, bingo. My daughter had this song play at her wedding. It was her bridal march song to the alter. You guys did a terrific cover on this very difficult song.
Reply: Brad.. Yes..I was surprised that the song came out in 2011.. To me it was more like...April🌝... Thanks fromJoyce &I.. Chet

Cantstopsinging Hi Chet.. I just saw Twilight for the 1st time and turned it off after 20 minutes.. I didn't know this song was connected to it till recently.. You've introduced me to this alternate version which is more challenging than the Perri version, at least to my ears and you successfully pursued it.. Thanks for asking me in on this.. More to come I hope.. Thanks to anyone who listens to this
Reply: Thanks Joyce it was fun (after I figured out my recording issues). My nephew (non blood relative) learned how to play guitar (Like Christina did) by watching a guitarist from a local band play..sheeesh!..now u gotta have that in the genes!...Chet
