  • Amazing Grace

    10/15/2022 9:48:13 AM PDT · by Allen In Texas Hill Country · 13 replies
    A few years back I made this query but got no answer. Thought I'd try again. In the mid 80s I compiled a library of music of over 3100 pieces. It is the only thing I listen to in my cars. So over the many years several have become my favorite. The second of which is Nana Mouskouri's Amazing Grace. This song, IMHO, best puts out her incredible voice and I have more than one of her albums. But gettng back to the piece, in the background is a choral group that sounds almost as good as her. I have...

    An assembly of people gathered in January 1972 in the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles for a service of sorts – though not the ordinary kind. Leading that day's song sermon was "Miss Aretha Franklin," as she was introduced to the audience by the Rev. James Cleveland. Franklin didn't address the crowd herself; instead, she let the first few lines of her rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Wholy Holy" speak for themselves: "People, we’ve got to come together / because we need the strength, the power and all the feeling.” Franklin, then one of the most prominent and...
  • The Slavetrader who wrote "Amazing Grace"

    John Newton was an Anglican clergyman and former slave ship master. It took him a long time to speak out against the Slave Trade but he had an influence on many young evangelical Christians, particularly William Wilberforce. At just 11 years old, Newton went to sea with his father. In 1743 he was on his way to a position as a slave master on a plantation in Jamaica, when he was pressed into naval service. He became a midshipman but after demotion for trying to desert, he requested an exchange to a slave ship bound for West Africa. Eventually he...

It's not a concert. It's only a prayer.""I will go there...

    Kanye West, controversial rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian, sat down this week with radio host and former bodyguard Big Boy to discuss a new turn in the rapper’s career. The “Gold Digger” star, who has previously tweeted provocatively on the subject of abortion, now appears to have changed his tune. This week, he dropped his album Jesus is King, a far different focus from the rest of his previous work. The star’s views haven’t just changed on religion and music, however. During the interview, the star discussed his newfound worldview, and on issues that affect the Black community. “Democrats...

    President Donald Trump stepped away from his microphone and remained silent except to urge calm and prayers Monday after a woman fainted at a rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. His supporters responded by singing "Amazing Grace" and many are now praising him for the tender moment. "That's one of our great people right there. Take your time," Trump urged as the woman suffering the medical emergency was treated by first responders in an 8-minute video of the moment posted on YouTube. As they waited to see the outcome of the emergency, some people yelled support for the president as well...

    When one lady asked for volunteers to join her at a Rivertown Mall in Grandville, Michigan, to sing "Amazing Grace," 250 people responded with RSVPs, and over 1,000 showed up at the mall. What makes this different from other "flash mobs" is that the lyrics were given out in a high-quality gospel tract form (so that anyone could join in with the singing). "Fortunately the singing at the Rivertown Mall was video-taped, and it brought tears to my eyes," says Ray Comfort, who came up with the idea. "In the clip you can see people holding the tracts as they...

    The authentic story of the redeeming power of the Christmas message is nowhere more vividly illustrated than in the incredible life of an English slaver named John Newton. He was born 300 years ago into a seafaring family in Liverpool. His mother was a godly woman whose faith gave her life meaning. She died when John was 7, and he recalled as the sweetest remembrance of childhood the soft and tender voice of his mother at prayer

    I watched the Restoring Honor Rally on CSpan. Based on their video coverage, I was under the impression only one bagpipe player was present at the event. What a great song and you need to see this from TheDailyBeck channel on YouTube if like me, all you saw was the CSpan coverage.
