Freedom is a cross-generational musical that combines narrations with inspiring original numbers, patriotic favorites, and three powerful new songs: Avalon's "For Freedom," Dennis Jernigan's "I Salute You" and an exciting new arrangement of the official song for the 2004 National Day of Prayer,"Let Freedom Ring." There is also a moving medley of great American hymns, framed by the eloquent words of Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous 1941 "Four Freedoms" speech. The accompaniment DVD provides historical and contemporary visual enhancement to the musical, while still allowing members of your community to participate through personal testimony and tribute. The extended section honoring our armed forces, present and past, makes "Freedom" an ideal offering for independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, or remembering September 11th. "Freedom" will inspire your congregation and challenge your congregation and challenge your community to hold high the unwavering light of our nation: FREEDOM!
