A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted April 14th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
This past Monday, April 13th, Niagara At Large posted a video of the great Italian singer Andrea Bocelli, standing alone on the steps of a cathedral in Milan, performing a beautiful version of the ‘Amazing Grace’ to a world of people who sure can use the inspirational words of a song like that now.
Shortly after we posted that video, one of our readers, Gail Benjafield of St. Catharines, was kind enough to share a video she received from her sister Karen, who lives in Alberta.
The video features a school teacher in the Town of Banff named Heather Jean Jordan, who has been climbing the steeple of a local place of worship, St. George’s-in-the-Pines Anglican Church, each day since the Coronavirus outbreak shut so much down and playing ‘Amazing Grace’ on the bells for anyone within ear range to hear.
It’s a very nice video so I thought I would post it here. So with thanks to Gail for sharing it, you can hear and watch by clicking on the screen below –
