"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer,
who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea,
his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to
drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation,
a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
The best Gospel Choir Grammy goes to our own Gladys Knight and a choir made up of members of the LDS Church.
LAS VEGAS, Nev. — For the second consecutive year, singer Gladys Knight has won a Grammy Award, this time for an album she recorded with the Saints Unified Voices, a choir of more than 100 Church members she formed in her home city of Las Vegas, Nev.
Founded and led by veteran recording star Gladys Knight, the 100-member Saints Unified Voices received a Grammy Award for their album. She regularly appears with them at Church firesides as a boost to the missionary effort.
The award, the recording industry's highest accolade, was presented Feb. 8, in Los Angeles, Calif. It was given in the "Best Gospel Choir Album" category for the choir's debut CD "One Voice," released in January 2005. The album is a collection of inspirational songs in diverse arrangements, including some standard tunes familiar to Latter-day Saints, such as "Come, Come, Ye Saints" and "I Am a Child of God." It has remained in Billboard magazine's Top 40 Gospel Albums chart for a year, after garnering the magazine's No. 1 Hot Shot Debut position the week of January 13, 2005, and landing at No. 9 on the Gospel chart.
[Gladys] Knight was baptized Aug. 11, 1997 [a member of the LDS Church], in Las Vegas, her son, Jimmy, and daughter, Kenya, having previously joined the Church. Since then, she has performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and other artists at two birthday tributes to President Gordon B. Hinckley, one when he was 90 and the other last year when he turned 95.
She organized the all-volunteer Saints Unified Voices in 2002 at the behest of her stake president for a fireside. The group's fame spread, and it has now performed at numerous firesides at which Sister Knight-McDowell, other family members and friends share their testimonies of the restored gospel.
A few weeks ago I published an entry "Certifiably Crazy" where I told of my Dad and dear hubby making a dry-ice bomb that would not go off. Here is a video clip (I found on the internet)that demonstrates what happens when one of these "bombs" fails to go off as it should.
