Lots of great worship bands, choirs, orchestras and musical artists are leading worship and recording great music to adorn the name of Jesus Christ with praise. Yet sometimes it is the simple that can be the most profoundly moving. I just ran across a version of the old classic, “Softly and Tenderly” sung by RoseAngela Merritt from NewSpring Church. No fancy arrangements or vocal harmonies here–just the simple song presented with passion and beauty.

In an earlier post, I introduced some of you to Ellie Holcomb and posted “The Broken Beautiful” video. Now it is time to meet Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. This live performance of “Live Forever” slips in a little bit of “People Get Ready” toward the end. There is an official video of this song but I love the live performance here. Enjoy!
