Default Help with key structure

Hi

I am wanting to learn a song as a singer, I have bought the original sheet music to the song (I Finally Found Someone, Bryan Adams and Barbara Streisand) and I have found a legal backing track that I have paid for. The problem is that both the sheet music and backing are in different keys to the original recorded version that appeared on Bryan adams and barbara's albums and that appeared in the movie (The Mirror Has Two Faces).

Does anyone know how I can find the matching sheet music and backing that is the same as the recored version. I am performing the song at a wedding, so I need help and fast.

Thanks. Links would be fantastic.

Assuming this is a serious post from a human being honestly wanting advice(and I have my doubts by the way it's posted) then I'd say...

I say scrap the book, and not worry about it. Listen to the original version, sing, record yourself. Listen closely how you sound, and how you sound in comparison. Practice over and over again until you get it as close as to your liking.

As much as I respect the spirit of attempting to perform as song on absolutely perfect key as intended, I hardly doubt a group of wedding goers will be too concerned to be picky critics if they'd have the ear to be anyway. Unless you're really awful and really off, I don't honestly think the audience you're catering to will mind.
