Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Did you know that on March 25th, 1961 a concert took place to help raise funds for the USS Arizona Memorial Fund. The line up included Floyd Cramer, the Jordanaires, jazz saxophonist Boots Randolph, and comedienne Minnie Pearl. The headliner was Elvis.

Now enjoy this video of Elvis singing American Trilogy during his Aloha from Hawaii concert (1973).

Thank you for your service Elvis, and for your concert that helped raise money for the USS Arizona Memorial Fund.

 

 

Remembering Pearl Harbor

From The Joint Forces YouTube channel is a copy of footage of the attack on Pearl Habor 75 years ago today. There is no audio, but none is necessary.

Just like 9/11, we will never forget Pearl Harbor.

Sweet Hymns of Joy – O Come All Ye Faithful

Welcome to week 2 of Sweet Hymns of Joy. Last week we were serenaded by Pentatonix. This week we are going way back in time and will be serenaded by The Lawrence Welk Choir as they sing O Come All Ye Faithful.

O come all ye faithful joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him born the King of angels;
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.

God of God light of light
Lo he abhors not the virgin’s womb;
Very God begotten not created:
O come let us adore him Christ the Lord.

Sing choirs of angels sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God in the highest:
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

See how the shepards summoned to his cradel,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh with lowly fear;
We too will thither hend our joyful footsteps;
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
