Back in 2006 I was part of choir team. We took part in Choir Olympic in Xiamen, China. We stayed at private school dorm like many other choir teams. One day my team didn't have any schedule after lunch, so we decided to go see the competition from different category. We went to see Pop and Jazz category, when we arrived at the venue, there was a choir on the stage performing a song that I didn't ever hear before. I asked my friends if any of them knew the song, no one. They were almost finish their performance when we arrived so I didn't get to hear the choir name and what song they performed. The only part of the songs I remember was "in the middle of night,,, I just walk around and,," in acapella. I determinded to know what song it was. I looked up on google for months but I couldn't find that song. Looked up on youtube, nothing. I completely forgot about this song until few months ago when I was on youtube watching some music videos.I usually watching some classics that I know the song but never watch the music videos or the artist performance before. After jump from one singer to another I decided to check Billy Joel's classics. The only BJ's song that I know is Piano Man and For The Longest Time, I clicked n watched BJ's music video and performance one by one until I ended up one song that sounds familiar. That was the song that have been haunting me for years: The River Of Dreams (1993). I was overwhelmed with excitement. The song came to me when I already gave up. At one point I even convinced myself that the song perhaps originally written for the choir only and not sing by popular singer. like they say: it'll come when you least expect it
