Washington National Cathedral held its annual "Blessing of the Bikes" on Friday for members of Rolling Thunder as they arrived at the nation's capital to honor fallen veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces on Memorial Day.
Ruth Frey, director of programs at Washington National Cathedral, told The Christian Post that "Rolling Thunder¹s presence at the Cathedral reminds us all we cannot fully recognize and honor the living without also remembering those who have been lost."
"This event with Rolling Thunder is part of the Cathedral's ongoing initiative to recognize and pay tribute to veterans, to offer a sacred space for spiritual healing, and to educate the civilian public about the experience of veterans and the challenges they and their families face when returning home," said Frey. more >>
It has been sort of a trend that groups have been auditioning on talent shows, hoping they can one day become famous. But, most of the time it is reoccurring and the performance isn't as good as they thought. The Kingdom Tenors go above and beyond with their performance … WOW!
If you are a big fan of this song, then you will definitely love their cover. 12 amazing voices singing together is something they you don't hear often. They also cover it in a way where it sounds unique. Which is very important when the judges decide. This group really blows the roof off of the place after performing "You Raise Me Up." You will definitely get the chills watching this one!

NEW YORK — At age 12, the concerns of most American children usually revolve around schoolyard politics and the awkwardness of becoming a teenager, but for Rifqa Bary, a young girl in Ohio, a life-changing decision to secretly convert to Christianity completely consumed her world and left her living in constant fear.
"I was terrified of my parents finding out, and for four years I hid my faith and my friends were afraid for me," Bary, now 22, told The Christian Post on Wednesday, a day after the release of her new memoir, Hiding in the Light: Why I risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus.
When Bary was 8, her family relocated from Sri Lanka, an Island near southeast India to the U.S., and first settled in Ohio. It was two devastating ordeals suffered by Bary that caused her family to flee her homeland and that would, in essence, lead to her leaving Islam for good. more >>
