Featured Group: Musical Dedications
John Denver once said, "Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same."
Can you dedicate one inspiring song to someone special with you today? Music indeed brings us closer to each other!
