Amazing Grace – The Blind Boys of Alabama

The Blind Boys of Alabama

The Blind Boys of Alabama

Amazing Grace as you have probably never heard it before, set to The House of the Rising Sun, performed by The Blind Boys of Alabama.

Amazing Grace is an old Negro song sung by the Black slaves.

Philip Yancey discuses the history of Amazing Grace in his beautifully written book, What’s So Amazing About Grace?.

The Blind Boys of Alabama have been performing for seven decades. That beats the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan by two decades.

I had never heard of The Blind Boys of Alabama, until I heard their version of Away in a Manger performed at rock n roll Christmas.
