    I am thoroughly surprised nobody has brought this up yet, but two of the original songs released last year, "I Give You My Best" & "Jehovah Welcomes You Home" were performed by George Benson, and the first one was a duet with singer Sheila Hutchinson, the same one who did duets with him over 10 years ago for the cancelled album mentioned in Our Kingdom Ministry. Compare this:

    Great find!

    I don't get it. The kid is dropped off at some kind of landscaping company, taught how to trim hedges, and the mother is crying tears of joy?

    Very strange.


    Big League Stuff - what with another post hinting at a possible USD 900 000 gift from the late Br Prince - superstars are good to have around - they do eventually die ! So suck-up to them !

    Have met and spoken to Benson when he did concerts over my part of the world - very down to earth guy - also corresponded for some time over e-mail with him along with jazz Flautist Hubert Laws.

    Benson attended the local KH during a jazz festival he played at here.

    It was an album of songs from Sing Praises to Jehovah (aka the brown songbook) that were produced with knowledge of Bethel pending approval and featured George Benson and Sheila Hutchinson. They sound almost just like the current 'original songs' on JW Broadcasting. Anyways, a copy of it was leaked and then the governing body backed out. They published an article in the KM saying these songs "sung in a popular style" were not approved, and not to download them. Funny how now it's a-ok.

    Do you have anything I can read about this? I remember that thing in the KM but I didn't know that was why.

    I completely missed this one. But then the last few years I've mastered the art of tuning out at the meetings.

    I know I read about it on this forum, maybe somewhere else too, years ago. Regardless, its plain to see (er, hear), that the same two people are singing both songs.

    This is NOT George Benson, but Phillip Ingram. Correction posted here:
