Amazing Grace

Name 10 People Who Have Not Done a Cover of Amazing Grace

Okay. Name 2. Nope can't do that either. A number of years ago, I saw a show on PBS that was about Amazing Grace, telling about the song, but also giving everybody you ever heard of's take on how to play it with heart and soul. This is my small attempt to recreate that joyful experience.

Here is the story of the song as told and then sung by Wintley Phipps.

Then, listen to Leann Rhimes do it her way.

And How about Elvis.

Then let el Divo rock your socks off.

Maybe You Remember Judy Collins from the 70s. Her voice will sound familiar to us oldsters.

And let me close for the moment with Willie Nelson
