Singer Defends "Enterprise" Theme
Thu, Nov 8, 2001 05:47 PM PDT

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Fan reaction to "Where My Heart Will Take Me," the theme song to UPN's "Enterprise," has been mixed at best, but that doesn't worry the man who performs it, British opera tenor Russell Watson.

"Isn't that like everything in life?" he says, in a Manchester accent that sounds a lot closer to Liverpool than London. "Something new happens, and people aren't quite sure of it. But they'll get used to it. By the time they've watched the 20th episode, they'll be thinking, 'Well, it's not that bad after all.'"

A long-time "Star Trek" fan, Watson didn't have to do too much hard pondering when Paramount and songwriter Diane Warren approached him. "Diane's a fan of mine," he says. "She already wrote something for my second album, and she asked if I'd like to get involved with the new 'Star Trek' production. Obviously, I had to check my diary ... not."

While he's not sure whether he'll make a cameo appearance on the series, Watson may get a chance to step aboard the latest incarnation of the starship Enterprise. "We're actually looking at recording a video [on the set] and releasing the song as a single, so if there are any Trekkies out there that really hate it, sorry, you're going to get it rammed down your throat for a while."

The song is the last track on "Encore," the follow-up to Watson's very successful first album, "The Voice." Currently available in the U.K., it is due to be released in the United States in February by Universal Classics/Decca.
