I Can Finally Talk

Posted on May 10, 2015

How Great Thou Art

Posted on June 1, 2013
Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill perform a magnificent duet of the classic hymn, "How Great Thou Art".  It felt like a flashback to the days when Christianity was openly celebrated on television and emotions were humbly displayed.  In a modern climate of terrorism, destruction, and death, it is a refreshing reminder of the universal love of God for mankind.
