Having previously worked as a hospital orderly in the early 1960s, Sledge achieved his strongest success in the late 1960s and early 1970s with a series of emotional soul songs.

Percy Sledge - My Special Prayer

My special prayer is a ballad written by Wini Schott . The song was first released on a single by Arthur Prysock (1963). A large number of covers appeared, including a big hit for Percy Sledge (1969 and 1974). Also a modest hit of the Dutch music group Big, Black & Beautiful appeared in 2008. In addition, several other covers appeared in foreign charts.

The song is about a man who hears a choir singing the song Ave Maria . He sings it with all his heart. He sends a special prayer to heaven, with the wish that his loved one will come back to him.
