Lonely People, not so lonely anymore

Eli Chamberlain and Alex Holsinger at Peace Christian Church Downtown... it's so downtown there is background traffic. Background traffic is a first for a Lonely People cover! Eli and Alex exude a warm confidence and work the harmonies and Oooooo's to the max.

The song Lonely People, so timeless and personal to so many, is a song that Dan Peek was proud of writing and performing. Dan said that when Lonely People was performed in concert it stirred the hearts of everyone in the audience. In Dan's words, "The reaction to Lonely People live was unique to any other song that we ever played. It became routine, that there would be a standing ovation during the middle of Lonely People."

Over the years the song Lonely People has not only held its own, it has gained an even larger audience. Dan was amazed at the amount of cover versions that fans of the song were uploading, and continue to upload, to YouTube.

Over the next few weeks, we are going to feature notable cover versions of Lonely People. You may ask, "What do you mean by notable?"...videos that strike a chord (pun intended) for any reason... they can be totally amateur efforts or highly polished concertos. The bottom line is they are true to the song Lonely People!
