Amazing Grace

I've always loved church hymns. I think it may have to do with the fact that I was a regular chapel goer during my school days. 

In case you were wondering, I'm very much a Hindu. But due to my heritage, we offer incense and lotus to Buddha and I am also passably well-versed in many things Islam because I have quite a few close Muslim friends. I honestly don't bother about other people's religious beliefs. I'm inclined to think that it's between them and God but more than one person has questioned outright what religion I belong to and though I think it's none of their business, I thought I'd take this opportunity to explain it anyway. 

I'm aware of the Buddhism being a teaching, but I don't know why I personally feel it's a religion of sorts, at least back home.

Enjoy the clip. Watch her expressions. That and her voice gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside :)

Her voice adds a whole different depth to the song. God bless her.

I wish i could say that to people who ask that question, but sadly I blabber something else instead:( Love this song,the last verse was actually removed from the song and recently this christian artist name Chris Tomlin did a great version of the song. Check it out on you tube :D
Looking forward for more from you.

Haha, yeah, it does... it's a bit chaotic, but I like it this way :)

Yeah, her voice control amazes me!

Couldn't agree more. The power and emotion is kinda amazing, no?

Haha, and the outlook on the religion is unintentional... think bloodlines and the society i grew up in :)

Amazing Grace reminds me of God's grace without which I would not be where I am today. There's a story behind this song and a movie was made about it sometime last year or so.
