How Great Thou Art

I am well aware that Carrie Underwood's latest performance has gone viral. However, I had to post it...I could watch this video 10 times a day, and I will cry every time. She totally whooped Elvis' version if you ask me. How Great Thou Art is a huge part of me, and will forever be. It was one of my dad's favorites {he was an Elvis lover too}, and most recently we just sang it at my Nana's funeral.

Why do I find this performance so special? Well y'all...we live in one messed up world. A world in which I can't even play Christian music in my classroom in fear that I will offend someone. So, when I get a chance to witness a huge star, raise her hand in praise {on prime time television} during Vince Gill singing Jesus Take the Wheel...and then watch other stars raise their hands in praise while she is belting out an awesome hymn, just touches me. It makes me believe that there is still some good in this world. It gives me hope.

I'm posting the 12 minute segment of Girl's Night Out...If you just want to see Carrie sing, then move the timeline up to about 7:30. However, I would encourage you to grab your coffee {or in my case your Rt 44 DDP} and watch it all. You will NOT be disappointed...and, if you are...well, we probably can't be friends.

We saw this on T.V. as well. It is amazing to watch huge stars praise our God! It goes to show God can take anyone, in any situation, and use it for his good.
Love this!
