He played single notes of “Amazing Grace” and then the audience, 1200 strong, joined in the singing of the poetry.There was something “sacred” about those singing voices – songbird like. Voices from the Deep South. Voices from Appalachia, from the Midwest, the East Coast, the Pacific Northwest, the Rocky Mountains and the West Coast.
