One of the real highlights of the We Will Stand video is Michael W. Smith leading more than 60 of your favorite singers as they deliver his hit song “Friends” at the close of the evening. That iconic song clearly articulates the reason CCM United exists—friends who come together with one mind and one voice to glorify God! In fact, here’s the Bible passage that has provided the vision for CCM United:
“Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement allow you to live in harmony with one another, according to the command of Christ Jesus, so that you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with a united mind and voice.” Romans 15:5-6 HCSB
In this video clip, we’ll start with Amy and her friends Brown Bannister (her long time album producer), along with Dan Harrell, and Michael Blanton (of Blanton Harrell Management fame) as she talks about their friendship of more than 30 years that set the foundation for her amazing career.
Then we’ll add Michael W. Smith to the group and let him talk about how the song “Friends” was written and ultimately impacted literally millions of CCM fans.
After watching this clip, you may want to give an old friend a call! I know I will.
