I believe the gold standard on the song "How Great Thou Art" was the version Carrie Underwood performed with Vince Gill. I am not a country and western fan, but this rendition of the song went virile a few years ago.
She did a nice job - very emotional. I must say I like Elvis' voice better, though.
One of my dreams is coming true. I've been waiting for Jackie to sing this song for a very long time. I can even imagine, at a future concert, her introducing this song and dedicating it to her friends Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford.
And like with both Memories from Cats and MHWGO from Titanic, although these were really favorites of mine, I never owned recordings of them before Jackie's. (I've since finally purchased a copy of the Titanic soundtrack though.)

A stunning instrumental version of "How Great Thou Art" by pianist Norm Hastings of Rest Easy Ministries. (A link to Jackie here is that some of this was used in one of the Pencil Girl episodes). Norm does thoroughly original reinterpretations of the old hymns and spirituals and doesn't hold back.
His interpretation of "O Holy Night" is magnificent. I would love to hear Jackie sing it to Norm's backing (even if he did drown her out a bit).
Jackie Evancho Wants to Unify the Country with Inauguration Performance
Jackie Evancho is hoping that her performance of the National Anthem at the presidential inauguration for Donald Trump will help unify the country.
“I hope to just kind of make everyone forget about rivals and politics for a second and just think about America and the pretty song that I’m singing,” the 16-year-old singer said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning. “I’m hoping that I can bring people together.”
The interview will be broadcast on January 15 at 9am and also features Jackie‘s transgender sister Juliet, who approves of the performance.
“The way I look at it is Jackie is singing for our country, and it’s an honor for her to be singing in front of so many people,” Juliet said. “So I feel that’s really where I look at it. And that’s where I’m going to leave it right now.”

What was that, that Jackie said before they sang "Let It Be" together..."Through thick and thin"? My late brother and I were two years apart, too. I always think of him when I see Jackie and Juliet together.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner a couple of hours ago. Brandie and Sampson are sleeping on the loveseat. Phoenix is sleeping in on my bed. I am watching football and munching raw broccoli. Broccoli has lots of vitamin C. It is good for winter.

rickolsen: It was 38 degrees today. 40 years ago it would have been 0 or lower. We have less than 6 inches of snow on the ground. 40 years ago we would have had at least 4 feet. Michigan winters are vastly different from what they were in the 60's.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner awhile ago. Phoenix is sleeping on the couch. Sampson is in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat. I'm watching football. I made spaghetti today and I'm having some for supper with parmesan cheese. I like it.

rickolsen: I ordered my aftershave on ebay like I always do. Bay Rum. I like the smell of it. I had to go to the post office to pick it up. One bottle was leaking. I get 2 at a time. About half the bottle was gone. This is the only problem I have ever had with ebay.
Jan 28, 2020 17:29:06 GMT -5
rickolsen: I take it back. Once I got a bucket of cat litter and it had no handle. That wasn't ebay's fault. That was the shipper. Really my aftershave wasn't ebay's fault either. Shipping accidents sometimes happen. I still love ebay and will continue to use them.

rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.
Jan 31, 2020 22:40:10 GMT -5
rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.
Feb 1, 2020 13:33:56 GMT -5
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.
Feb 3, 2020 10:02:55 GMT -5
rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping on the love seat. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. I'm watching football. Almost all of our snow is melted away.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.

Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!
Feb 14, 2020 8:31:08 GMT -5
rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.
