This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

I'm In Awe of This Woman

Annie Lenox.  Amazing performer.  Amazing musician.  Amazing human being.  To tell you the truth, I've never known that much about her before, even though we're of the same generation.  I intend to catch up.

Her song at the American Music Awards last night was brilliant.

There are some wonderful videos on YouTube, but they can't be embedded into blogs, so you'll have to browse on your own to watch.  I highly recommend!!

I've always loved her. I have a friend that sang back up vocals for her and said she is a super nice person too (but said the guy she sang with for all those years before she went solo was a creep). I'll look up some videos!

She's on of our favorites around here. You can't help but get chills when she sings.

Um.... I saw the title of this post and FULLY expected to see a picture of me.

I love Annie Lennox too. Her voice can be rockin' and haunting. That's a crazy spectrum.

I LOVED her song Into the West for Lord of the Rings Return of the King. It won the Oscar and rightly so.
