Amazing Grace

I saw this clip featured at Just a BeachKat. Take a few minutes to watch it. I am sure you will enjoy it and be moved by it. It also taught me a few things I never knew about Negro Spirituals. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Mari,

This is truly amazing. I also learned a lot about Negro spirituals. It's incredible that they consist mostly of flats and sharps. Thank you for sharing. I truly enjoyed my visit here tonight.

Blessings,
Mary

My computer didn't want to let me play the video. I'm so glad I kept working at it and finally got it to play.
WHAT A BLESSING!!

How neat is that!!! I love Nergo spirituals and the energy we feel from the emotion they give. Can only be a God thing!!!!

I've seen that before but had forgotten that the songs were played on the black keys. So cool. I love those songs!

Black, white, yellow or Pink- Captor or captive- WE are all EQUAL in the eyes of the Lord. We are saved by HIS grace alone!

Maybe Rev Wright should take some notes from this Gentleman, along with the Liberals

Interesting history/music lesson. I think I will watch it again
