They being dead still sing God's grace... Wow!

My friend, Bill Provenzano, recently wrote me:

"Almost 2,000 years ago, Christians were massacred in the Roman Colosseum. It gives me pause when I consider that so many years later, Amazing Grace shakes the very walls wherein our brothers and sisters were slain for the sake of His everlasting name, even by a group called Il Divo."

Singing this hymn at games, concerts and other venues seems trite and almost predictibale. At the Roman Colosseum, however--ironic. Check it out.
