Listen to the Music!

The timeless American classic What a Wonderful World is sung here with grace and power by Tom Tipton. As another year draws to a close, with political and ideological divisions seemingly worse than ever, it is helpful to remember the simple, universal constants that we all hold dear: the beauty of the natural world, the joy of friends and family, and the promise of tomorrow that dwells in our children. This rendition is from The Best of Tom Tipton, a spotlight on nearly four decades of song. Herein lies an American songbook of classic spirituals and sacred songs. Taken from the best of 12 albums of recorded music, this is the retrospective of a great life in music.
