Just the Black Notes

Over the 4th of July weekend, while visiting family and attending their church, we had the pleasure of hearing Wintley Phipps sing as the special music for the service.

Then a few days ago I attended a funeral where they included a video of one of the favorite songs of the deceased.

And you guessed it, it was sung by Wintley Phipps.

But, singing is not all that he does.   He also plays the piano.

One of the hymns that he plays is Amazing Grace using only the Black Notes. 

You have probably heard this before.  But even if you have, it is definitely worth hearing again.

A friend send this link via email recently and I was reminded once again how good this brief (8 minute 54 second) video is.  HERE’S THE LINK
