This was probably the first number to become a hit as a result of television exposure. Jane Froman first sang "I Believe" in her TV series "USA Canteen" in 1952 during the Thanksgiving show. With the Korean War raging and many people worried about the possibility of another World War, Froman asked for a song to be written that would offer some hope. "I Believe" was the result. She was reluctant to record the song, but did so quickly when she learned that it had been given to Frankie Laine to record. Froman recorded the number on 23 December 1952 (Frankie Laine's recording was made on 8 January 1953, Elvis's 18th birthday) and it was released the next month on Capitol 2332, eventually reaching number 11 on the Billboard Best Selling Singles chart and earning Jane a gold record. Frankie Laine's version of "I Believe" went on to become a huge international hit, including no less than eighteen weeks at the top of the UK charts.


I Believe
performed by:
Jane Froman



I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows

I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows

I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way
I believe,I believe

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
Will still be heard

I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word

Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
or see the sky
Then I know why I believe

The smallest prayer will still be heard

I believe
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I know why I believe

A flower grows

I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows

I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come
To show the way
I believe, I believe

I believe above a storm the smallest prayer
Can still be heard

I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word

Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe





Every time I hear a new born baby cry,
Or touch a leaf
or see the sky
Then I know why, I believe
