DVD - Fanny Crosby: The Musical - Her Story, Her Songs
This dramatic music video highlights Fanny Crosby's most popular songs, including "Blessed Assurance," "Pass Me Not," "Praise Him! Praise Him!," "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," "Rescue the Perishing," "He Hideth My Soul," "Near the Cross," and "Tell Me the Story of Jesus." Beautifully scored with a full chorus by Janet Maish Thomas, the arranger portrays the "blind poetess of song," who penned over 8,000 of America's most beloved hymns. D. Paul Thomas, playwright and actor, serves as our narrator, taking us on a compelling journey of tragedy and triumph, revealing a fully-human Fanny Crosby who overcomes the obstacles of her life by the power of God's grace. This handsomely remastered video (by Comprehensive Media) was filmed in Los Angeles in 1985, after the live show toured (as Blessed Assurance) around the nation to packed-out houses.
