Children’s Choir Sings Chilling “When You Believe” & The Location They Chose Will Move You

It’s truly magnificent when people lend their talents to honor the memory of fallen soldiers and victims of war.

This stunning rendition of “When You Believe,” a song from the film The Prince of Egypt, will most likely move you to tears based solely on the sheer beauty of the angelic voices of the children who sing it. But when you find out why they’re singing the song, and where they’re singing it, you’ll be running for the Kleenex box.

 The One Voice Children’s Choir is a non-profit organization comprised of children ages four through seventeen who live in Northern Utah. The group recently traveled to Omaha Beach and Brittany American Cemetery and Memorial in Normandy, France in order to perform this song dedicated to the soldiers who fought in World War II, as well as honoring the millions of Jewish victims who died during the Nazi Holocaust.
The choir performs the stirring song while standing on the very sands where the D-Day Invasion took place on June 6, 1944.  While the beaches of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword Beaches look beautiful and inviting, it’s impossible not to think of the blood spilled there as Allied forces fought to gain a foothold in Continental Europe against the Nazis.
To illustrate that, while time eases the pain of loss, we never forget those who have fought for our freedoms and the lives that were lost, the children’s choir sang this song in English, Hebrew, and French. Conductor Masa Fukuda arranged and produced this amazing rendition of the song.

Here is a sampling of the song’s uplifting lyrics:

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

With its soaring aerial photography and beautifully costumed child vocalists, the video is truly a joy to behold! It has currently been viewed over 3 million times on YouTube, and we hope you’ll find it as inspirational as we did!

Baby Cow Escapes Slaughterhouse, Then Unlikely Woodland Animals Adopt Her As Their Own

Every now and again, you run across a story about pigs, ponies, and other farm animals who have made a break for it during round ups for slaughter. Bonnie the cow managed that same escape, but then opted for what we’ll call the “scenic route.”

Last fall, she and the rest of her herd were living at a farm in Holland, New York, but it was about to close. They were all going to be sold at auction and eventually slaughtered, but Bonnie’s the delicate sort and all those cries and bellows were too much for her young ears. Spooked, she took off and disappeared into a nearby forest.
She was just four months old at the time and residents in the surrounding area searched high and low for weeks, fearing she wouldn’t survive once the ground was covered with thick blankets of snow.
But that forest is also home to deer, and somehow she managed to form an unlikely alliance with one herd. They not only welcomed her, but provided all the warmth and companionship a little calf could need.

But the people who were out looking for her didn’t know any of this until a couple months after she disappeared, when hunters spotted her on their wildlife cameras.

The arrangement with the deer was working now but would not be beneficial forever. So one of the town’s residents, Becky Bartels, took pity on the poor little orphan and made it her mission to bring her to safety.

All the neighbors were kind of talking about how she was in the woods and winter was coming … They started talking about how sad it was, like she’s all alone and she’s going to have to fend for herself, she’s probably going to starve for the winter. And so people were saying, “Someone should feed her,” and Becky became that someone.
So Becky spent the entire winter working her charm and bringing her gifts of food and bedding, until the little calf started approaching her willingly. (She also named her, taking the name from the infamous outlaw Bonnie Parker, of Bonnie & Clyde fame.)

This went on for about six months. But going out every day to hand feed a cow who’s taken up with a herd of wild deer couldn’t go on forever. So earlier this month, Becky got in touch with the folks over at the Farm Sanctuary, and a rescue crew spent more than a week trying to capture the wayward calf.

They loaded up two trailers full of supplies and transportable gates, which they used to create a temporary pen around the area where she was already coming to eat.

It was a long and arduous process, but the rescue crew led her onto the trailer and from there, to her new home at a sanctuary in Watkins Glen.

She’s in isolation for now, but once she settles down and gets her bearings, she’ll be introduced to the main herd. It won’t be long before she’s entertaining everybody around the food bins, and telling the calves bedtime stories about her life with the deer that year in the woods.

“I can’t even tell you how many tears were shed when she was finally on the trailer,” one of the crew members said. “We were so, so, so relieved that we got her.

Traits That Make A Woman Beautiful (And They Have Nothing To Do With Looks)

Some people think that looks are really important, but the truth is that looks can – most of the times – be deceiving. We fail to become better persons because we are too busy improving our appearance, when, in reality, it’s our personality which will lead us to fulfilment.Women are tend to focus on their looks slightly more than men. What needs to be understood is that a woman, just like a man, can be really attractive, even if she’s not the prettiest girl in the world.Here are 11 traits that can make a woman beautiful:

1) Honesty

Honesty is one of the most important qualities for a woman to have. I can promise that if there’s one sure-fire waste of time in life, it’s strapping yourself to a liar. The thing about lying is that one lie can quickly lead to zero truth. Finding a girl who’s honest will provide a man with someone to trust and, more importantly, to trust in. There’s nothing more attractive than the latter.

2) Independence

A woman who is independent is a woman who doesn’t need a man by her side. She chooses to be with someone and that’s a different thing. But this woman values her job, her friends and her life in general as much as she values relationships. Sometimes, even more than that. No body wants a woman that is dependent on of them to do things. It’s important for a woman to be able to take care of herself. It’s also nice for a man to know that he can spend some guy time or alone time while his girlfriend is doing exactly the same thing.

3) Sense of humour

Who said that only men should have a good sense of humour? Women can be funny too. And there’s nothing more gorgeous than a hilarious woman! It’s nice for a man to be beside a woman who doesn’t take herself too seriously. Someone who isn’t afraid to be goofy. If a girl can make you laugh, what’s not to be attracted to? Wit is one of the most enjoyable forms of humour because it actually provokes thought. A woman who’s witty won’t need to constantly put people down to get a rise out of you, and that’s always attractive. Men want a woman who’s their conversation partner, not just an adoring fan.

4) Understanding

Understanding is a trait that’s really important for every healthy relationship. That’s why men tend to choose women who can understand them. A caring woman is not necessarily weak. On the contrary, she can love deeply and strongly. That’s what every single person looks for in the world: another person who can understand them.

5) Originality

There isn’t one way to be original. It might be her style or her love for new adventurous. The thing is that this girl is never boring. Originality is the anti-basic, the anti-boring. Originality is what will keep you guessing, and when a girl is truly original, this quality will constantly be reappearing in new, different ways. One thing is certain; this girl knows how to have fun.

6) Kindness

True kindness really is rare these days. Sure, you get people who are nice to those who hold some sort of value to them, but how many people do you meet every day that would go and talk to the lone stranger crying in the street? Men don’t want to be with a person that’s just nice to them, their friends, and their family. They want a person who can brighten up their day by brightening up the lives of everyone she comes in contact with. Kindness is vital within relationships to soften disagreements, there is nothing less attractive to a man than being constantly harshly berated and belittled by a woman, after all we are all human and have failings and shortcomings, the use of kindness in such situations helps to remind us we are all special unique individuals worthy of love, compassion and when needed, forgiveness.

7) Passion

It’s inspirational when anyone is really into something. Whether it’s a cause, a hobby or a job, seeing what gets a lady fired-up makes her more attractive (unless it’s dog fighting). Another thing that’s important: hobbies. Women with hobbies are sexy, even if those hobbies are, I don’t know, stamp-collecting. It doesn’t really matter. All hobbies come from a place of passion, and when looking for a woman to keep in your life – why not look for a passionate one?

8) Confidence

Physical attractiveness is only one side of the coin; mental attractiveness via confidence is the other. Combine an attractive women with confidence, and you have an unbeatable human being who can conquer the world and help you do the same. Confidence is one of the best—if not the best trait that a human can have. Confidence is a woman’s way of projecting that she knows exactly what she’s doing out in the world. She’s self-assured that she doesn’t give a shit what you or anyone else thinks. It also an instant reflection that she knows—and is ready to leverage—her intrinsically high value. Just like there’s nothing more attractive than a confident man, nothing can beat an attractive and confident woman.

9) Intelligence

It’s a myth that men prefer women who are naive or even stupid. Intelligence is sexy for both genders. Intelligent and clever men respect intelligent and clever women. A smart girl, a girl who knows what real life is all about is really, really attractive. Intelligence is possibly the most attractive quality you can find in a girl, even if it’s not accompanied by lots of college degrees.

10 Decisiveness

If there’s something that can piss off a man as much as an overly dependent or clingy woman, it’s a woman who can’t decide anything when faced with the most trivial choices, like picking a cheese in a supermarket. However, life decisions are far more important and that’s what I’m talking about: an attractive woman should have goals, should know what she wants from her life – and from her man as well. Goals show self-awareness. Setting goals shows that you know who you are today, and who you want to be, tomorrow. They also show that you’re ambitious, and mature enough to define your own wants from life – and yourself.

11) Loyalty

Loyalty is one of the best human traits. One can be loyal to a cause or to another person. One of the sexiest things that a woman can possess is loyalty to her man. That means she has values and is stands for something for concrete and static instead of blindly following her emotions for any new guy comes along, which doesn’t require much effort. Loyalty means she knows how to think logically instead of being held captive by her whimsical emotions.

No One Expected Jaw-Dropping Performance From Bizarre Singer, But She Delivered One

Even though we know not to judge someone based on their appearance, it’s natural to make a snap assumption about a person when they first step on a stage.

 

The audience at a taping of Ukrainian “X Factor” was blown away when 29-year-old Julia Ivanova showed up for her audition. With her flaming scarlet hair and leather-studded pantsuit, the young woman looked like a futuristic cross between Elvis Presley and Ariel from “The Little Mermaid.”

 

While some in the audience snickered at her ensemble, she quickly gave everyone in the crowd something else to talk about: her amazing talent!

Julia sang a cover of the famous Queen song “The Show Must Go On,” — and she totally nailed it. With vocals that were at times soft and other times loud and gritty, Julia certainly did Freddie Mercury proud!

Just a few moments into her performance, the crowd that had been giggling behind their hands were now standing up and clapping as hard as they could

The judges were astounded, too! Watch Julia’s star-making performance below, and don’t forget to share this video to spread the word about her incredible talent! She proves you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Awesome Movies Where The Hero Dies

No one wants the hero to die in the end, and everyone wants a happy ending. Those are the general audience expectations for a movie. Most people will hate a movie simply because the writers defied those rules. But, every now and again, an awesome movie appears that kills off the hero at the end and gets away with it. It hurts, of course, to see the hero die. It’s inevitable to feel sad, maybe even depressed about it, but somehow the death of the hero made sense within those awesome movies and required us to work through the emotions of the story.

Gladiator

Things don’t turn out too great for General Maximus Decimus Meridius at the beginning of this film. His life is turned upside down, and he’s made into a gladiator. By the end, he’s able to taste sweet revenge but not before succumbing to his wounds and traveling to the wheat fields of Elysium.

The Departed

Scorcese knows how to make a great gangster film, and this movie is no exception. Though, the sudden and violent shoot-out at the end, resulting in the killing of the main characters hits you where it hurts; it almost couldn’t have ended any other way in retrospect.

The Shining

Jack Torrance is an author who needs a little peace and quiet to get his book completed, so he takes his family to an empty hotel to see it through. Unfortunately for his family, rather than writing the book, he goes insane and brutally attacks them. Still, while hunting down his son through a garden maze in a blizzard, he freezes to death.

Donnie Darko

It’s no secret this is a mind-bending movie. We’ll try to simplify it. Donnie believes he has to sacrifice himself to stop the impending apocalypse. So, of course, at the end of the movie, he dies.

Pan’s Labyrinth

This film reaches the tragic end of Ofelia being murdered by the very terrifying villain Vidal. But, as a result, she travels to the fantasy world where she becomes a queen.

The Hateful Eight

If you’re a character in a Tarantino movie, you’ll likely not make it out alive. This is especially true of The Hateful Eight. Trapped in a cabin and surrounded by a bad blizzard, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) and Sheriff Chris Mannix (Walter Goggins) receive mortal wounds but don’t let that stop them from seeking revenge against Daisy Domergue.

V for Vendetta

V’s primary goal is to inspire an uprising against a brutal totalitarian regime. He wishes to be a symbol of resistance rather than a crime-fighting vigilante. So, after he completes his quest for vengeance, he dies in the arms of Evey (Natalie Portman).

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

In this amazing science fiction action movie, the Terminator sent back to kill John Connor now has been sent back to rescue him from an even more powerful cyborg. When his mission is completed, the Terminator slowly descends into a vat of hot liquid with his thumb up in the air.

Titanic

This tragic love story that needs no introduction follows poor painter Jack Dawson as he falls in love with the very wealthy Rose. We all know as the Titanic sinks, try as they might, Jack freezes to death in the cold Atlantic waters.

Braveheart

When his bride is murdered for assaulting an English officer, William Wallace starts a revolt against English King Edward I. We all wanted to see Wallace crush the English King under his foot in this film and might have even been tricked into thinking that was going to happen until reality set in and the truth came to light. Wallace is tortured to death while screaming, “Freedom!”

Today Sucks But Here’s A Guy Passionately Begging City Council To Legalize Massage Parlor Happy Endings

Today, like the day that came before it and the day that will almost certainly come after it, sucks majorly. It’s a fact that unites all of us. But watching this man’s impassioned plea to his local city council to legislate in favor of legalized massage parlors (as caught by @25_male_nyc) will hopefully make this day suck a little bit less.

Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them just want to get jacked off by a consenting stranger for a reasonable price. This is a lesson that it’s not just what you say, but how you say it. His shaky tone before cursing. His miming what it must be like to finger a sweaty fat man for a living. There’s just a lot going on here. And while you might not agree with all of his points (like the one that you basically hate America if you don’t vote to legalize a greasy massage table handy) you can’t deny that watching this video made today (a day that sucks) suck less.

Biggest Google Maps Mistakes

We’ve all likely experienced a Google Maps mistake at some point. Maybe it took you down a strange route, led you into worse traffic, or kept bringing up a totally different location than you wanted. With technology, this stuff will happen. However, it’s one thing to get bad directions because of a Google Maps error and something else entirely when it involves international border negotiations. That’s right, Google Maps is so vital to the stability of the world that one mistake could lead to international disputes. Curious to hear more? Then get ready for the 25 Biggest Google Maps Mistakes.

Mount Rushmore


For nearly five years, Google Maps was sending people to the wrong location when they typed “Mount Rushmore, SD.” Instead, it took people to a retreat center called “Storm Mountain Center,” which was about thirteen miles away from the real Mount Rushmore. The problem became so persistent, they had to put up a street sign warning people about it.

Round Valley State Park


When people entered “Round Valley State Park” into Google Maps, they instead ended up at New Jersey resident Laurie Gneiding’s house. People trickled in at first, asking for the state park, and Gneiding would kindly tell them they were on private property and where the park was actually located. Eventually, dozens would come by every year at all hours, sometimes acting indignant and belligerent.

Wrong Direction


This is more human error than Google’s error, but at one point, Noel Santillan, an American tourist in Iceland, drove six hours in the wrong direction simply because he spelled part of the address wrong.

Emden, Germany


Located in North-West Germany, Emden sits right next to the Netherlands border, and Google made the error of including part of Emden’s harbor in Netherland’s territory. According to a Google spokesman, however, a border dispute dating back to the 15th century was to blame.

Boston South Station


A Redditor discovered the Google Map directions to Boston’s popular and traffic heavy South Station were placing the building underground adjacent to I-93. Even though the building extends below ground, there’s no entrance underground. He found this out when his driver kept dropping him off at the wrong spot.

Christ the Redeemer


Argentinian tourist Natalia Lorena Cappetti, her husband, and another couple used Google Maps to get to the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. Instead, Google Maps took them to Morro dos Prazeres, one of their most dangerous slums. When they traveled through there, they endured heavy gunfire and Natalia Cappetti was shot in the back. At the time of reporting, she was in serious condition and undergoing surgery.

Rowlett, Texas


In 2016, Lindsay Diaz pulled up to her driveway to find quite a surprise – her entire house was demolished. The firm Billy L Nabors Demolition tore down her house by mistake, claiming they used an incorrect listing on Google Maps.

Underwater Tunnel


After using Google Maps for directions, a Turkish cyclist shut down a 4.5-mile underwater tunnel in Norway for thirty minutes as it wasn’t made for cyclists. Authorities had to go on a rescue mission to find the man and remove him from the area.

Preikestolen Cliff


For a time, tourists in Norway looking for Preikestolen cliff were in for a rude awakening if they used Google Maps. Instead, the app would send them to Fossmork, a small Norwegian village about 20-miles away.

Priyanka Chopra reveals she was bullied in US high school

Priyanka Chopra has revealed that she was racially abused in her first time living in the United States as a teenage schoolgirl.

The 34-year-old, who is covering June’s Glamour Magazine, told the publication that she was picked on badly in high school, leaving her to opt for a return to her native India.

The Quantico star, who has successfully made the transition from Bollywood to Hollywood, said that she came to live with an aunt when she was 12 years-old.

“I went with my cousin to her school, and it was so fascinating to me. Nobody wore uniforms. You had lockers. What my cousin said was really easy. I was like, ‘Ok, I don’t have to study,’ and I would get A’s” Priyanka said.

Priyanka – who went on to win Miss World in 2000 – said she convinced her mom to study in the United States. She lived in Iowa, New York, Indianapolis, and Boston.

She, however, said that the negative aspects outweighed the positives, and she returned to India after three years thanks to racist bullying in school.

“There was this girl who was a major bully… that girl in school used to call me ‘curry’”, Priyanka told the publication, adding that Indians are afraid of letting people see the glory of who they are.

Chopra voiced her belief that she doesn’t believe there’s a huge understanding of Indian culture in the United States, saying that the fault lays with Indians, who tend to forget their roots a bit.

Priyanka showcased her stunning looks in a sexy semi-clad shoot for the glamour magazine.

Farrah Abraham almost quits Teen Mom OG

Teen Mom OG participant, Farrah Abraham, opened up about almost quitting the show.

Abraham had an extremely passionate argument with her estranged mother, Debra Danielson, in the premiere episode of the WE tv reality show. On the Friday episode, Debra and Farrah, who had a similar blowout in 2010 resulting in Debra being arrested for domestic abuse after she was accused of choking Farrah, argued about their relationship. The charges were dropped and Danielson claimed that it was Abraham that had her in a headlock. Abraham, after the most recent altercation, almost walked off of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition.

“Why am I raising my voice, why I am arguing and fighting up against somebody who can’t admit to what is really happening and going in in our family history?” said Farrah in an interview with E! News. “I get really upset when I’m around liars. I detest people who lie. I can’t stand it.”

With the argument beginning in the premiere episode, it seems that they will continue to fight throughout the season.

“There is an episode where we talk about traumatic experiences, my mom and I, and we still cannot get on the same page,” said Farrah. “So sometimes between lie detector tests and traumatic experiences, there’s just a certain point in time where you’re like, somebody does not have the wherewithal to take accountability to even remember things, and you’re like, ‘Why do I even want to be around them anymore?’ The best narcissists can block things out and act like nothing ever happened to just keep going.”
