Did You Know?

Was looking out for songs to post on Facebook about today's #MusicalBirthday's... and up came one song that was sung by more that one birthday musician. 

And what was even more striking... the song is about a woman - the woman of the month... the lady to whom the month of May is dedicated... a loving Mother... revered not just by Catholics, but by people of every religion... 

The song ' Mary Did You Know' addresses Mother Mary on the 'greatness' of her Son, Jesus... The song was written by Mark Lowry (lyrics) and Buddy Greene (music) and originally recorded by Michael English...

We possibly know it best from the Clay Aitken version or the Pentatonix acapella sound... But the #MusicalBirthday Stars who have the song in common are: 

Wynonna Judd (52)

The country singer sang along with her mother Naomi in the Judds, and also has a famous sibling in actress sister, Ashley.

Wynonna has featured in the recording of the song by country superstar, Kenny Rogers. Have a listen...

Cee Lo Green (42)

Born ten years later than Wynonna, Thomas Callaway better known as Cee Lo Green features in the 2012 album, Cee Lo's Magic Moment and is part of the closing credits to the 20th Century Fox movie Son of God.

Tomorrow is the last day of the month of May... and the feast of the 'Visitation'. Let us pray to this Mother for her intercession, that we may know Her Son better...
