Unless you don't live in the States or Canada, have cable tv or are fasting television, you probably knew that American Idol had their Idol Gives Back night last night where with the use of many famous idividuals they raise money for various charities in the U.S. and Africa. It's a very touching evening. Of course the big grande finale song is with the remaining contestants. Pick my jaw up off the floor as out of all the heart-tugging songs in the history of the world about compassion or giving, this is the song the producers chose to do:
Brought tears to my eyes. I thought is was lovely and the Lord got lifted at the end of a very popular, watched show. First thing hubby said when I showed him was "They're trying to raise money and will use what they can." I thought maybe one of the producers must be a believer because that is a full out worship song and they took a risk that might cause them some fall out.
Anyway, I thought it was a beautiful end to a night of being asked to step outside ourselves and care about others, that they would end it with a song that glorifies the Lord, the One who cares for people most of all.
