For each month of 2018, Miranda released a remix from Hamilton to make up the Hamildrops series, each one featuring one or more musical artists who added their signature twists to the now beloved songs. It was a pretty varied group of collaborators, from "Weird Al " Yankovic to Sara Bareilles to The Decemberists. The last song, which dropped in December, was called One Last Time (44 Remix) and the 44 isn't just there for show. Although you won't get to hear his singing voice, the 44th president turns up in the middle of the song to read George Washington's final address as president. At the same time, Broadway actor Christopher Jackson (who played Washington in Hamilton) and gospel singer Bebe Winans provide the musical elements of the song.As president, Obama reached an especially high level of celebrity status, and he and his family have often made forays into the world of pop culture. Obama became a part of several viral videos, and former First Lady Michelle Obama occasionally followed her husband's lead on that front. Most recently, she turned heads all over the word with a pair of gold Balenciaga thigh high boots she wore to a speaking engagement. Now, the former president has earned a considerable amount of attention with his work on this remix and it came with recognition he never got in the White House.

DUBLIN For popular Catholic media personality Bishop Robert Barron, an auxiliary of Los Angeles, when Pope Francis opened a cautious door for divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to receive Communion in Amoris Laetitia, he wasn t dumbing down Catholic teaching but illustrating how to respond when people fail to live out the ideal.In a keynote address for the Aug. 22 26 World Meeting of Families in Dublin, titled Pope Francis and the Gospel of the Family: What is Jesus Calling our Families to Be? which focused on chapters 7 9 of Amoris, Barron said that instead of dreading the fact that he had to handle chapter eight, which includes the controversial footnote on Communion, he was happy to get the assignment.
Born to preacher and civil rights activist Clarence L. Franklin (who organized the 1963 Detroit Walk to Freedom ahead of his good friend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr;s March on Washington) and his wife Barbara Siggers, Franklin grew up singing gospel music in the church. In her youth, she was mentored by Mahalia Jackson, the ;Queen of Gospel; and a noted civil rights activist who was also good friends with King.In 1967, Franklin released "Respect, " arguably her most famous song, which became an anthem for the racial and gendered political movements of the time, something that wasn 't lost on Franklin who said of her signature track in her memoir Aretha: From These Roots: "It reflected the need of a nation, the need of the average man and woman in the street, the businessman, the mother, the fireman, the teacher mdash;everyone wanted respect, " Franklin wrote. "It was also one of the battle cries of the civil rights movement. The song took on monumental significance. "
The Rev. Billy Graham's children remembered quot;America's Pastor quot; on Friday as a man devoted to spreading the Gospel, living his life at home as he preached it in stadiums, with a personable humility and an unwavering focus on the Bible. As his oldest son told the funeral congregation, quot;There weren't two Billy Grahams. quot;His adult children all speakers or preachers in their own right recalled being taught by their parents how to read Scripture aloud and deliver sermons, but also taking quiet walks with their father and feeling his embrace even when they made mistakes.
In terms of sheer arithmetic, Billy Graham was the most successful evangelist the world has known, a man who preached the Gospel to more people than any other person in history.For countless millions both inside and outside the US he became a standard bearer, not just of American Protestantism, but of America itself. His tall, gaunt frame, his granite jaw and flowing mane projected the very image of a modern prophet. The Billy Graham Crusades for Christ created a formula that proved as successful in its way as McDonald s hamburgers or Kentucky Fried Chicken. Backstage organisers and public relations managers prepared the ground for months, ensuring that the stadiums were filled to capacity.
This morning s Gospel reading is Mark 1:21 28:Then they came to Capernaum, and on the sabbath Jesus entered the synagogue and taught. The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes. In their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit; he cried out, What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are the Holy One of God Jesus rebuked him and said, Quiet Come out of him The unclean spirit convulsed him and with a loud cry came out of him. All were amazed and asked one another, What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him. His fame spread everywhere throughout the whole region of Galilee.
The Gourmet is set largely in a London church that offers a soup kitchen and overnight shelter for the city's tramps. The scriptural roots of its charitable mission are proclaimed on a plaque carrying a quotation from St. Mathew's gospel:I was hungry and you gave me food
Why Stipe was never asked to host MTV;s ill fated Like We Care is beyond me. It would;ve been great theater an icon trying to make sense of the inarticulate musings of tortured teens with bad skin who worship him. After all, it takes one to know one. R.E.M.;s Stand should;ve been the theme for Beverly Hills, 90210;s achy breaky rites of passage instead of Get a Life;s shempy stasis. By no means a slacker, Stipe has wanted to be a pop singer so bad for so long that now, on Automatic For the People, R.E.M.;s eighth LP, it hurts so good. Many of the songs on Automatic are calls to action disguised as studio crafty cries for help. The kind of stuff John Lennon and Wilson Phillips used to pull off so well. On the white anxiety gospel of Everybody Hurts, Stipe even pleads, Hold on, hold on. Find the River, with an earnest strum strum, plinking piano, and elementary school recorder melody, is so lump in the throat hypnotic that the tragically lame poetry achieves a certain inspiring grandeur of lameness. Stipe is bluntly cautionary again, but once the song;s narrative gets to the ocean, he doesn;t spook us with a 400 Blows send off. He simply croons: All of this is coming your way. Nirvana 's name may be graffitied on the convenience stores of America, but R.E.M. is the band that made it virtuous and cool again for pop stars to bleat about pop culture. Unfortunately, the penance for Berry Buck Mills Stipe was two conventional rock albums (Document and Green) with a dearth of hummable tunes and loads of totally discernible lyrics which showed the political self awareness of Fugazi or Country Joe and the Fish. Still, the records never really sucked, and hey, these were stand up guys. So when I went to see the Butthole Surfers sometime during 1987 and they did a scathing, acid punk version of The One I Love, setting dollar bills on fire and throwing them into the audience, I couldn 't relate. It was the petty, bitchy response of betrayed fans and I didn 't feel betrayed. I was just bummed that R.E.M. would rather be a mainstream rock band than a tortured pop band.
