Amazing Grace was written be John Newton in 1772. It is one of the most recognized hymns in the world. It has been recorded many times and in many forms.
Judy Collins’ voice is so pure and her version raises the hairs on the back of my neck.
I heard Nana Mouskouri sing Amazing Grace live and she brought tears to the eyes of many in the audience including myself and received a standing ovation for her glorious version.
I am including the Il Divo version because the venue at sunset could not be more spectacular plus bagpipes add something to the hymn.
