Idol Gives Back is the name of American Idol’s 2-hour-long charity extravaganza. Started last year, the show raises a lot of money for several different charities ministering to starving children and hurting people around the world as well as in America. Calling it a star-studded event is a major understatement.
This year they ended the show by having the remaining contestants – all dressed in white – sing the worship standard Shout to the Lord. Yep, the same one we sing on Sunday mornings – but with one notable exception.
Instead of singing the song’s original opening line, “My Jesus, my savior . . . ” they changed it to, “My Shepherd, my savior . . .”
Interesting. What do you think? Respond to the poll over on the left.
