Daddy-Daughter Duo Sing Beautiful Cover Of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’

Father-daughter duo Mat and Savanna Shaw are using their powerful vocals to impact millions around the world.


Today these two talented singers are singing a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water.’

‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ is a phrase inspired by the Bible and was in a Baptist church hymn which Paul Simon liked used it to write the song.

When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all, all
I’m on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

The song reached Number 1 in 1970, was written by Paul, but it was Art Garfunkel’s brilliant voice which made the song stand out. It spent six weeks at No.1 in the US and swept the Grammys in 1971, claiming six awards including Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year.

The song was translated into many languages, and covered by hundreds of artists, including Johnny Cash, Annie Lennox and Bonnie Tyler.

When you’re down and out
When you’re on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I’ll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Today as we hear this daddy-daughter duo sing this song, we are inspired by the words to be a help to someone today, to comfort and be a support to someone hurting, to be a bridge over someone’s troubled waters today.
