In this tribute to a favourite musical theatre production, Les Miserables, independent Canadian artist Allison Crowe performs Fantine's "I Dreamed a Dream" (words and music by Alain Boublil & Claude-Michel Schönberg).
Crowe's live recording of this song is on her double-album (two-CD) set "Live at Wood Hall".
US music blog Muruch says: "Here Allison Crowe once again proves that there is no song too great for her powerful voice to conquer. Her vocals on 'I Dreamed A Dream' are especially potent and moving. As with her cover of 'Hallelujah', she seems to put every fiber of her being into the song and it's an awe inspiring thing to hear."
