Chris Tomlin led a room full of politicians in worship.

Grammy Award-winning CCM artist Chris Tomlin led worship at the annual breakfast and sang several of his chart-topping hits, including “Whom Shall I Fear” and “God of Angel Armies.”

Following a powerful message from Gary Haugen, the CEO and founder of the International Justice Mission, which highlighted the horrors of modern-day slavery, Tomlin sang “Amazing Grace,” a hymn originally penned by John Newton, former slave ship master.

“It’s amazing that this song was written from a once slave trader and is probably the most beloved song in all the world,” Tomlin said. “John Newton said God saved him in a dramatic way, and he wanted to spend the rest of his life preaching the good news and the freedom of God.”
