Inspirational Song of the Week
Monday – Friday, April 6 – April 10, 2015
“Sometime early in life Tom must have realized that not all of us have had his good fortune, to be born with a song in his heart. It has guided him every step of his life. To hear Tom, is to hear America singing. He has joined us with his exuberance, his reverence and solemnity in our times of trial. He has inspired us in our faith and led us in our thanksgiving, and healed us in our grief. And Tom has done this not only with his song but with his joy and humility and his decency.” – Jim Klobuchar, columnist, Minneapolis Star Tribune[/col]
