    I think that some hymns are just better the way they were made. Come Thou Fount is my FAVORITE hymn of all time, and I just love the peacefulness of it… but when they played it (no offense to them), I couldn’t make it through it because it lost that serenity. Maybe I’m just biased though, because I always like the originals better 🙂

    I loved Carrie Underwood’s rendition! It was beautiful! She has an amazing voice! One song I love is Christ Tomlin’s version of Amazing Grace. It brings tears tom y eyes every time!

    I love Carrie… she’s a huge role model to me, along with Taylor Swift.

    I like to see my fav Korean pop stars cover Christian songs.
    A few of the top stars got together to sing You Raise Me Up for a Haiti benefit

    I saw “How Great Thou Art” on the day it aired on ABC, and I bawled like a baby when I heard it. It’s one of my favorite hymns, it was sung at my grandpa’s funeral, and it has so much meaning emotionally for me. Thanks for sharing it!

    Mumford and Sons’ version of Come Thou Fount brings tears to my eyes. Favorite song and favorite voice! I do like all of these songs 🙂 Hymns are so beautiful, and I wish this style was used more often.
