Gavin and Halee both love singing ‘Amazing Grace’ the Chris Tomlin version of the song. They are really cute when they do it. I have shot some video of them singing it, but I want to get some extra footage before I post a video, so that will be coming soon.
If you are not familiar with the the version that Chris Tomlin does he breaks off after the part that everyone knows and starts with:
My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace
Which both Halee and Gavin know and love singing.
At the kid’s school they attend chapel every Wednesday. I am not sure how it goes, but I am guessing that individual classes may lead the singing or something to that effect. Gavin’s class must have been leading the singing or something up in front of the entire school. They were singing Amazing Grace, when they finished the regular part Gavin all by himself continue by singing the words above. He finished singing the song while everyone in attendance listened. The teachers all said that is was an incredible sight to see and hear, some hadn’t even heard that version of the song. Halee’s teacher even made a comment this morning and made a big deal about it when he walked in the room by saying, “Well there is Gavin our soloist” and said to Kristee that it was so precious to see him singing it up there and it brought all the teachers to tears. Definitely one of the moments I wish I could have been there for.
Gavin says that the teacher knew he was going to do it, but I wonder if he didn’t just continue after everyone else finished. Because in his mind where they finished, that is not the end of the song.
I can’t wait to get them both singing it on video and share it with everyone because it is really awesome and brings a huge smile to my face every time they break out into ‘Amazing Grace’.
This is the video of Chris Tomlin singing it just in case you aren’t familiar with this version.
