>MARVIN GAYE & TAMMI TERRELL (right inset)

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” It’s got soul and melody, and to say no wind, no rain can keep me from you is the ultimate statement. Tammi had a great voice—and it doesn’t get any better than Marvin Gaye.

CELINE DION & ANDREA BOCELLI

“The Prayer” An absolute masterpiece. It’s basically a mix of classical and pop with an amazing arrangement.

DOLLY PARTON & KENNY ROGERS

“Islands in the Stream” It’s a musical moment with a power unto itself.

JAMES INGRAM & PATTI AUSTIN

“Baby, Come to Me” They made it come to life. James is one of the best singers in the business.

STEVIE NICKS & TOM PETTY (left inset)

“Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” To me, it’s an unusual pairing. But sometimes a great song will pull people together.
