Hatch's Song Sung at National Prayer Breakfast

WASHINGTON, DC -- Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's songwriting has once again landed in the public eye. The Ref. Wintley Phipps, a two-time Grammy nominee for gospel singing, sang Hatch's "Heal Our Land" at the 49th annual National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton.

Phipps is a minister at the Seabrook Seventh-day Adventist Church who met Hatch when he visited Hatch to talk about the U.S. Dream Academy, a program that tutors children with parents in prison. By the end of their meeting, Hatch had given Phipps several CDs, including one that contained the song Phipps sang.

Like many of those attending the breakfast, Phipps was surprised to learn that Hatch wrote songs. And he praised "Heal Our Land" as "appropriate for our times because of the division in our country."
