This past Sunday we posted a video that was taken by one of our contributors, Michelle Murray, during Sunday morning’s unity march.
The video captures a powerful moment when over 1,000 people from different churches and races all begin to sing in unison behind Charlotte’s courthouse.

The crowd happened to be singing a perfect song for the moment, “Good Good Father”, repeating the lines;

It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I am loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am
’cause you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us”
