Japanese rock star YOSHIKI joined Sarah Brightman at Royal Albert Hall for their final live performance of “Miracle” on November 11.
The collaboration of the two legendary international artists culminated in a standing ovation from the audience who gathered at London’s most iconic venue for Brightman’s last stop on her “HYMN: Sarah Brightman In Concert” world tour.
YOSHIKI’s composition “Miracle (Sarah’s Version)” – which Brightman called “the No. 1 masterpiece” on her album HYMN – reached the Top 10 on iTunes Classical Charts in 15 countries and has achieved over 3.5 million views on YouTube.

The Royal Albert Hall performance was the latest on-stage reunion for YOSHIKI and Brightman, who first performed the song together in Germany in September 2018. YOSHIKI was invited by Brightman to travel to some of the largest cities on her HYMN album tour, including New York (Radio City Music Hall), San Francisco (Masonic Auditorium), Los Angeles (Dolby Theatre), and Tokyo (Yokohama Arena).
Brightman also appeared as a guest performer at “YOSHIKI CLASSICAL 2018” at the Tokyo International Forum last December.
This month, the PBS classical music special YOSHIKI Live at Carnegie Hall began airing across the United States. Because of the enormous reaction from American viewers, YOSHIKI’s touching, must-see concert has created overwhelming demand, with TV stations in major U.S. markets receiving numerous requests to add the special to their programming schedule.
