I have posted this before but I thought we needed something positive going on here. Please watch it all and wait for the bagpipes. It gives me a chill every single time.

Tony is from Scotland and has a few family members that play the bagpipes. Kilts and all!!!
It's just not my thing to see men in kilts, nor is it Tony's. PHEW!!!
However, it is most pleasurable to listen to his relatives and the kilts are their heritage, so overall, it's just plain
nice to know these wonderful people personally.
Sadly though, they play at many funerals.

Loved both versions. We have both Scot and Cherokee ancestors. Has anyone been to the Scottish Games at Grandfather Mountain near Boone, NC?

This is an awesome song, with a great history. It's my favorite hymn.

Eight or so years ago I attended the annual state ceremony for firefighters who have died in the line of duty. At the end of the service, following the ringing of the bell for the fallen firefighter's last call, a bagpipe player in full dress led the procession out of the auditorium followed by a NYC firefighter dressed to the nines, who escorted the family of the fallen firefighter.

I am not one to cry easily but the sound of the bagpipe playing "Amazing Grace" was just too much, coupled with the sadness for the family and the ringing of the bell.

"Amazing Grace" is one of my all-time favorites. The Il Divo and Cherokee renditions are truly beautiful. Thank you for the link.

Thanks for the links. The background on the origin of the song is very interesting. The experiences from Newton's life add more meaning to someone who might not be familiar with the lyrics. One of the reasons why I think it's so popular and has lasted so many years is that you can interpret it in a very personal way.
