"There You'll Be"

"There You'll Be" is a love song by American country pop recording artist Faith Hill. Written by Diane Warren, produced by Trevor Horn and Byron Gallimore, and arranged by David Campbell, it was released in May 2001 and was featured on the Pearl Harbor soundtrack. The song was also featured on Hill's greatest hits albums There You'll Be and The Hits.

"There You'll Be" was first offered to Celine Dion, who reportedly turned it down.[1] The song's music video was directed by Michael Bay, who also directed Pearl Harbor. The video was set in the same time period as the film, and drew many parallels. A cover of this song appears in Dance Dance Revolution Extreme.

Chart performance[edit]

Released in May 2001, "There You'll Be" reached a peak of #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 2001 due to strong airplay. No commercial CD single was released because producers wanted to boost sales of the Pearl Harbor soundtrack, which forced the song to chart solely on airplay in the United States. The song also reached #11 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart. The song was a big hit on the Adult Contemporary chart, staying at number one for 12 non consecutive weeks. It was also popular in Canada, as it topped the singles chart in August 2001.

It is by far Faith Hill's biggest hit single in the UK to date, debuting and peaking at #3 on the UK Singles Chart in June 2001 and spent 15 weeks inside the Top 75. On September 20, 2008 a contestant called Amy Connelly sang the song in her auditions of The X Factor.[2] Her performance was so moving it reduced the judges to tears and the viewing public liked it so much that it renewed interest in the original Faith Hill rendition of the song and the track re-entered the UK Singles Chart at #10 the very next week based purely on downloads, which gave the song an extra 4 weeks inside the Top 75 giving the song a total of 19 weeks.

It was nominated in 2002 for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, but lost out to "I'm Like a Bird" by singer Nelly Furtado. The song also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, but also lost to Randy Newman's "If I Didn't Have You" from Disney/Pixar's Monsters, Inc..

The song reached number 10 in the UK in 2008 from downloads alone. This was due to its exposure on ITV show The X Factor, during 18-year-old Amy Connolly's audition, which reduced judge Cheryl Cole to tears. The track was used as background music for the audition.
