Last year I did a countdown of the top moments of the year that I saw either in person in concert or online via webcast. Today starts the countdown of my top moments of 2013. These are standout concerts, songs or testimonies that happened throughout the year. They will continue throughout the month. So here's #10 -
Silver Dollar City's Southern Gospel Picnic always provides an incredible 11 days of great music, so it isn't often that a song from the first day of the festival still has you talking on the last day. However, that was the case this year. On the first day, the Pfeifers blew us away with their rendition of "It Is Well With My Soul."
John set up the song by telling about the writer of the song. He was going through one of the hardest times of his life when he wrote the song. They played the first part of the song with just the trumpet and sax. Then, they sang the last verse. We all sat there mesmerized as it gave us chills. The entire audience was on its feet, and most of them went to the next show hoping to hear it again.
I don't know that the video fully captures the moment and how incredible it was, but you should watch and enjoy!
