As an adult, I’ve always liked the song “Amazing Grace”. It didn’t have the same effect on me when I was a little kid, but as I’ve grown & walked through so many challenging times in life, the meaning of the song’s lyrics become deeper & more meaningful.

Whenever I hear the song played well on bagpipes, it actually has the power of bringing a tear to my eyes. Maybe it’s because I’ve heard it so many times as someone special has passed from this life, in honor of their service, courage & character.

Of all the times I’ve heard Amazing Grace sang or played, I can honestly say that there has never been such a touching and powerful rendition of the hymn as the one below, performed by the world-renown, multinational male quartet, Il Divo.

Even if you’re not a fan of operatic music, you’ll feel something inside as you watch & listen to this video. I’m hoping that you find it inspiring.


  1. First of all, this is not an Italian quartet.  il Divo is a group of four tenors, one American, one Spaniard, one Frenchman and one Swiss.  Second, this is not the Roman Coliseum.

    • In checking further, I found that you’re absolutely right about the origin of Il Divo being multinational – and have updated the post, accordingly. Where did you see a reference to this being the Roman Coliseum? Thanks for the information!
