My Dear Aunt Martha and I spent the whole afternoon surfing the internet trying to find something new, and different to share on Angel Watchers. Well, Aunt Martha finally suggested that I search for some Techno Praise music. You see, Aunt Martha, having been a professional opera singer all of her life, still keeps tabs on all of the latest musical trends, which is something that I am really loathe to do. I had never heard of Techno Praise but I do trust Aunt Martha's judgment. I typed in the search term, and dozens of hits popped up. It did not take long to find this Techno Praise version of Mark Lowry's wonderful Christmas gem "Mary, Did You Know?". It is sung by a fresh new singer by the name of Johnny Hammer, and he is sensational. The power, honesty, innocence, and freshness of Johnny's performance brought tears to both Aunt Martha's, and my eyes. Johnny also has an amazing angelic presence that makes him so much fun to watch. I predict that this version of "Mary, Did You Know?" will turn out to be a perennial Christmas favorite. By the way, the group that Johnny belongs to is called Technopraise. Please join Aunt Martha and I in watching this amazing video by clicking on the widget below. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.

Once in a great while, I come across a video that really catches my fancy in a big way. As is often the case, I was looking for something else, and serendipitously, I find a precious treasure. To say that I was totally captivated by this video would be an understatement. In this edition of Angel Watchers, I present Yura who is seven, and Karina, who is six, from the Northern Ukrainian city of Berdichev. Thanks to Yura and Karina, we are allowed just for a few minutes, to glimpse beyond the veil that usually separates us from seeing the pure innocence, and unbounded joys of childhood. Yura is amazingly strong and athletic for his age, and makes all of his moves seem so effortless. It's almost as if he is defying gravity, and throughout all of this, Yura has a beatific smile on his face. Karina, is the perfect dance partner, and plays her part extremely well. I can easily imagine both of them as being the set-piece on top of an Angelic Music Box. Watching this video is truly a transcendental experience. Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
