If you’re the type of person who has always thought that Creed‘s “With Arms Wide Open” should really be used to tell the tale of Jesus Christ, then brothers and sisters, today’s your lucky day. For it has come to pass; said song will be performed by Jencarlos Canela in the live musical performance of Passion, which will air on Fox this Sunday at 8 pm ET.
And if you can’t wait that long to hear it, you’re in luck: the soundtrack album is out today. And that soundtrack is filled with some pretty unlikely covers. Here’s the track list:
Trisha Yearwood sings “My Love is Your Love,” the Whitney Houston song that Wyclef Jean wrote (and produced) for her; she also covers “Hands” by Jewel, “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz, Lifehouse’s “Broken” and the Rogers and Hammerstein classic “You’ll Never Walk Alone” (from Carousel).
Prince Royce covers Hoobastank’s “The Reason”
Seal also covers Tears for Fears’ “Mad World”
