Amazing Grace

On Thursday night, I was visiting my blogging friends and happened upon this video over at My Little Corner of the World. Mari urged her readers to take a few minutes to watch it and I highly recommend it. This is an amazing lesson on Negro Spirituals and something that everyone should know. It's really incredible. Be sure to continue to watch the video until Wintley Phipps begins to talk about the song and tell about the music and what notes are used to write Negro Spirituals. You will be amazed, as I was. Enjoy!

Thank you, Mari for drawing my attention to this incredible information.

To my readers in the US, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. ~Blessings, Mary~
