Recently we watched Amazing Grace with Wintley Phipps on YouTube with a few friends. It is absolutely amazing! I encourage you to watch this as it is only 9 minutes.

Wintley Phipps is Afro-American and has one of the most moving and beautiful baritone voices today.
He says his music teacher in Alabama said that most of the Negro Spirituals can be played on just the black keys of the piano, called in musicology pentatonic scale.
I especially like what Phipps said, “Whether we are black or white, we have been brought together through God’s amazing grace!” Glory!
Phipps relates the history of the great song, Amazing Grace and then sings it. My, o, my! You have never heard anything like it!
