What is “Sing Amazing Grace At 8”?

First, there were protests following the tragic death of George Floyd… and then traumatic, widespread destruction and looting of downtown Nashville. Our city needed hope and reuniting. Barbi had a vision – to get everyone singing together. And what better song than “Amazing Grace”! CBN reported… “Protests Turned to Praise!”…

PROTESTS TURNED TO PRAISE!

Broadway is a street our teams go for continual worship and praying for revival. Some from our teams spoke with bar managers on Saturday, June 6th, asking if their bar bands could sing Amazing Grace at the same time that our worshipers would be singing it on the street. Surprisingly, 18 out of 20 of them agreed, so the whole Broadway strip was singing Amazing Grace at the same time. Then FOX 17 NASHVILLE showed up and Live-Streamed our street teams singing that night to their Facebook page, getting well over 127,000 views in just a few days online…

The teams have returned 3 Saturday nights in a row now, with bar bands still playing the song …and now other cities are doing it too.
