Ave Maria (Beyoncé)

First there was Bach-Gounod, then Schubert, then Beyoncé… Today’s song is Beyoncé’s Ave Maria which was released in 2008. The chorus features Schubert’s theme, but the verses are original. Beyoncé apparently performed the song during her I Am … World Tour in a wedding dress and veil! I was first introduced to this song when I played it at a wedding a couple of years ago.
