Breath of Heaven

I love this version of 'Breath of Heaven (Mary's Song)'.

I keep listening to it over and over again. The singer really captures Mary's plight. Amy Grant wrote the song and I love her version, too. I heard her sing it in a Christmas tour with her husband, Vince Gill. It sends cold chills.

Oh Susan, that is incredibly beautiful. Heidi Schmidt - I haven't heard of her. What a voice.

We've listened to this Amy Grant Christmas CD since we lived in Turkey - it's been 20 years! This was maybe my favorite song on it.

Ruth, I know. When she sings "Help me be me me", I just want to cry. I think Heidi Schmidt is German. I listened to a couple of her other videos and it seemed she was singing in that language. And with that name it seems reasonable. I need to look her up.

Ruth, I looked everywhere on the internet for Heidi Schmidt and couldn't find a trace of her except for those 5 or 6 videos on YouTube. She evidently isn't well known. Curiouser and curiouser!
