Music In My Head, Now Online!

Ever have one of those songs in your head?  The ones that linger for days and days?  You try as hard as you can to put another one there and it ends up a failure.  Well this is one of those songs, "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing."  I heard the piano piece first as my companion plunked away at it.  Later, I looked it up online to listen to it and fell in love!  This rendition is absolutely breath-taking!  It became embedded into my mind.  I would hum along as my companion would play.  I made a meager attempt to sing along, but quickly remembered why I am a "music appreciator" only.
There are many wondrous stories told of a former Elder in our mission who sung this song and brought tears to our Mission President's eyes.  Of course, it was before my time.  But that didn't stop me.  Being the online missionary that I am, I contacted the former Elder and asked him if he had a recording of it.  He didn't at the time, but does now (as you can see).  This is Alex Balagna singing "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing."  Enjoy!


It is truly incredible how music can instantly bring the Spirit into a room, car, park, and your soul.  Music brings the Spirit at any time and any place.  I am so grateful for the power of music!
