One of our favorite things we do all month is view all the submissions for our "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition!
And this month was especially pleasurable because we chose Jason Mraz's new single, I Won't Give Up, and that song is so exquisite! We can't get enough!
And we also can't stop listening to The Lorentzen's cover! They are the very worthy winners!!! Our favorite entry - by far!
Check out their Lady Antebellum meets church take on the song (above)! SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!
Second place goes to Anna Palmerola! Her version is very lovely AND she did something no one has ever done in our "Can YOU Sing?" cover competition before!
Anna made the song her own with not just her beautiful arrangement, but she also flipped the song and turned into on a Spanglish tune by adding her own lyrics in Spanish! So smart! So effective!
Check out Anna's version of I Won't Give Up below. And….

On Friday, Ken Adkins handed himself over to Georgia police for charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation, after a young male from his congregation made some upsetting allegations.
For those of you who might not remember, the Brunswick pastor shared an incredibly homophobic, insensitive, and highly offensive tweet about how the Orlando shooting victims "deserved" to be killed in that horrific massacre at Pulse nightclub that killed 49 people.
