I am really thrilled to see Songs of Salvation in more and more musical events.Yesterday, in the 2006 Grammy Awards, Mariah Carey presented her great song “Fly Like A Bird” (accompanied by a Choir, a song that also was featured in the 2005 “Storm Telethon” and in “Good Morning America“). Last night, at the end of that song, she was acclaimed with a standing ovation. You were able to see Sting and all the other singers standing up of their seats in awe after hearing Carey’s heavenly message, while Teri Hatcher (the most desperate one) even made a comment (that wasn’t captioned) related to that song and the Salvation that it brought to the whole place (and don’t forget Carey’s songs “My Saving Grace“, “When You Believe“, and her other related ones.)
Then, last Saturday Night Live (SNL) show (Feb 04, 2006), in his second rendering, Prince, featuring Tamar, presented the great song of his own salvation, entitled “Beautiful, Loved and Blessed.”
While at the same time, PBS was presenting in its Austin City Limits show, Gretchen Wilson singing her song “Politically Uncorrect“.
Then, last year, in the Country Music Awards, Brooks and Dunn presented their great song “Believe” (and, of course, they also have their great “Red Dirt Road” song); and we hear Josh Turner singing his “Long Black Train“, while in her 2005 NBC‘s special, Faith Hill performed her beautiful song “There Will Come A Day“, covering the very same topic that Mariah Carey was presenting yesterday to the cosmos…!
I am so Blessed!
And of course, the rendition of “Amazing Grace” acappella by Faith Hill after 9-11 and after Katrina is one of the most beautiful songs ever!
