Classically trained tenor and Britain's Got Talent finalist Jonathan Antoine joins Mike to discuss Jeff Buckley's critically acclaimed album 'Grace'.

A modest success in Jeff's lifetime, 'Grace' has only grown in cultural relevance and esteem since the singer songwriter's untimely passing. Together Jonathan and Mike explore the emotional story of Jeff Buckley and how that informs the music on the sole studio album of his lifetime.

In what way do the lyrics on 'Grace' take on a eerie resonance since Jeff's death in 1997?

What commonality can Jonathan find between Jeff's emergence into the public eye and his own initial success?

Why did Jeff replace the song 'Forget Her' with 'So Real' on initial releases of 'Grace'?

PLUS: An opportunity to hear Jonathan's beautiful new single 'Io si' written by legendary songwriter Diane Warren.

A fascinating exploration on this episode of 'My Classic Album'
