n an age of great division between fundamentalist churches and the gay community on the issue of gay marriage, Guyanese alternative soul singer Nhojj celebrates this Easter holiday with his traditional-gospel inspired 'Amazing Grace' - a groundbreaking gay music video which gives a new interpretation to the time-honored religious hymn.
'Amazing Grace,' arguably the most recognizable of all Christian hymns, was written in 1779 and is a staple in the American landscape.
