Cades Cove

The first photo is for the Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church. The second photo is a treasure. I was outside the church and heard singing inside. I went quietly in (unsure if I was interrupting something), and found a small crowd of tourists listening to the three ladies in this photo. They were seated on this bench, eyes closed, singing a gospel song in acappella harmony. They were outstanding and pitch perfect. Many years ago they sang together as a group, but time and distance had put an end to their group. This was their first visit together in years and they were so spiritually moved inside this beautiful old church they closed their eyes and sang a spontaneous song. They had no idea there was anyone else there until they'd finished and we all applauded. To my everlasting gratitude, my husband came in with the video running while these wonderful ladies sang. We have them and their singing on video. An incredible moment.
