Liz Callaway ("Anastasia" 1997)

I remember the first time I heard "Journey to the Past." We had just finished a 12-hour recording session for "Anastasia," and Steve and Lynn said, "Do you want to hear your new song?" Stephen sat down at the piano and played it for me. I got incredibly excited when I heard it. It felt like they had written it just for me. I was pretty tired, but I sight-read it on the spot and we made a demo of it right then and there for the producers. Was a pretty special day (and night!).
