Guy Scheiman Celebrates 50th Anniversary of
“I Say A Little Prayer” With Hot New Version
Specially Made For Today’s Dance Floor
Leading International DJ/Remixer Presents a High Energy Progressive House Circuit Version of The Classic 60’s R&B Track Featuring Power Vocals by Katherine Ellis
Fifty years after "I Say A Little Prayer" became one of Dionne Warwick’s biggest hits, leading International DJ/Remixer Guy Scheiman is releasing a brand new high energy interpretation of the classic R&B track for today’s dance floor. Written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, the original song appeared on Warwick’s The Windows of the World album, reached number four on the Billboard 100 chart, and was later re-recorded by Aretha Franklyn. For its anniversary, Scheiman presents “Say A Little Prayer”, featuring the vocal styling of Katherine Ellis, a respected dance vocalist who is best known for her work with The Freemasons, Joey Negro, and Roger Sanchez.
“I’ve always loved the lyrics about love and hope between two people,” says Guy Scheiman from his home in Israel. “I wanted to make a pumping 2016 version of ‘I Say A Little Prayer’. I brought in Katherine because she is a powerhouse diva with amazing vocals and experience. She did an incredible job on this record.”
“Clubbers love classic covers reimagined with upbeat versions,” he continues. “I know people are going to love the 2016 version of ‘Say A Little Prayer’.”
In the new interpretation of the song, renamed ‘Say A Little Prayer’, Scheiman lays down a lush cushion for Ellis, inventing new high energy beats that help to shape the classic R&B track into something more trendy and suitable for modern dance floors; making it a sure-fire arm raiser.
