Well, dare if you wish and watch this super touching and sad trailer for Downtown Abbey's sixth and final season. It starts off with gentle piano and vulnerable singing that foreshadows the end of our favorite characters. The song is a cover version of Con te Partirò (Time to Say Goodbye) sang by 20 year-old Lauren Aquilina from the UK. The song, made famous by Andrea Bocelli is given an acoustic make-over and goes oh-so-perfectly with the commercial. The song first premiered during UK's X-Factor. Check it out below and also listen to Bocelli's powerful version. Downton Abbey will air in the UK on September 20th. but will air in the US on January 3, 2016 on PBS.
You can purchase the song on iTunes right HERE.
