Blind Boys of 'bama mix Amazing Grace + House of the Rising Sun


(system) #1

h/t to Fuller Seminary grad. student Nick Zork for alerting me to this great The Blind Boys of Alabama rendition of Amazing Grace set to the House of the Rising Son. In addition to the great soulful sound, this recontextualization of the song returns it to its origins as a confession of personal salvation and social justice, in this case, abolition.

The need for abolition continues today.
