Joel Smallbone is one of two brothers that make up for “KING & COUNTRY,” a highly successful Christian music group. Joel is also an actor and has starred in several movies. His latest project, “Priceless,” was directed by his brother Ben. Joel says while it’s a story of love, strength, and redemption, it tackles the very real problem of human slavery and sex trafficking. The DVD is now available on Amazon.com.

    My wife and I watch the Church Service every Saturday evening. We are blessed by it. I have a question from the TV church presentation on May 27th Hour of Power. There was a young lady who sang two songs, solo in the Service. I did not get the title of the first song but realized as she sang it beautifully that I had heard it before recently when we visited a Sunday at the church of a relative just two weeks ago. It is a very worshipful song and I would like to get the name of it an how I could get the music to it. I am 82 years old and a retired pastor. I thought while I was thinking about I would write and ask your help. I want to use it in my private prayer time. It touched my heart. If you could help me I would be very grateful. Many thanks in Christ, Keep up the good work. J JW

      Hi, John!

      I’m so glad to hear that you connected with Sunday’s music so well. The young woman singing is the talented Caity Peters. She is performing “Holy Spirit,” which was composed by Brian and Katie Torwalt. We are so blessed by our musicians!
