Amazing Grace Reply

One of the most recognizable songs in the English language, Amazing Grace, was sung at the National Prayer Service yesterday. Wintley Phipps, who is the founder and CEO of the U.S. Dream Academy*, interpreted this song in a particularly moving and profound way. I thought I would share it with you:

*Says Mr. Phipps, “The U.S. Dream Academy is a nationally honored, values-centered e-classroom empowering at-risk children to achieve their dreams in the new millennium. It is a youth-focused program that speaks to the alarming cycle of inter-generational involvement in the criminal justice system, effectively lifting the children of prisoners and those failing in school, out of this devastating cycle.”
