Thank you for your kind words. i have to give my dear mother all the credit. because she wanted me to have an unusual name.. The name Geralynn is actually derived from St. Gerard, the Patron Saint of expectant mothers.
To keep this thread on topic, I have moved Peter's reply to a new thread on the Off-Topic board HERE. Richard
Welcome to the forum! I'm a bit late with my welcome but I came across this thread today. You're in best company here. i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif Everybody is "Hayleywowed". I was in the US last week but unfortuneately at the "wrong" coast. I was in New York and Hayley performed in California. You can't have it all.
Well done Stephany, that was a cool bit of ferreting!
I am no particular fan of Abide with Me as an album song, unlike several other HWI members who I know absolutely adore it. it is played everywhere so often that I tend to think "what? again???" so my next comment is probably quite meaningful.
I have not yet examined the recording closely but if it was sung "live", that is without doubt the best rendition of "Abide With Me" that I have ever heard. It was a truly exceptional performance.
... and the Scottish Glasgow Celtic football team is pronounced like an "s" at the start. However, Hayley pronounced the first letter of her album title correctly... like a "K" as it relates to the Celtic race of people and their lands.
Hi Dori, Clicking directly on the links doesn't work - otherwise, it will redirect you on the "Hour of Power" website. You need to right click with your mouse on the link, and then choose "Save Target As" and put the file wherever you want it to be on your computer, and then open it. It should work! i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif
Thanks so much for posting pictures of Hayley from her Crystal Cathedral Performance. I consider myself very fortunate to have been there to see her rendition of "Abide With Me" . It was truly an experience I will never forget.
