Check Out Emeli Sandé's Gorgeous Rendition Of Abide With Me That NBC DIDN'T Want You To Hear!

While the rest of the world may have been treated to Emeli Sandé performing the hymn Abide With Me with a troupe of dancers at the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, all in tribute to the 52 people who died in the London bus and train bombing attacks on July 7, 2005, NBC callously decided to opt out of airing that segment, and instead ran a Ryan Seacrest interview with Michael Phelps!

And although it's shameful that US audiences weren't given the opportunity to see what many have regarded as the best part of the entire ceremony, the UK songstress has released a stunning studio version of the song, backed by only a piano and performed in one take!

Give it a watch (above)!

Her voice literally sends CHILLS down our spine!

It's BEYOND gorgeous!

We bet many Americans are going to realize now just how much they missed out on by having this cut!

Such an unbelievable disappointment!

Whitney Houston Takes Us To Church In Sparkle!

Earlier this week, we gave you the first of two songs the late Whitney Houston recorded for her upcoming movie, Sparkle.

Now, we have the second one — gospel hymn His Eye Is On The Sparrow — and you might just want to have some tissues handy before pressing play…

Take a listen to one of Whitney's last songs recorded (above).

Wow. Utterly chill-inducing!!!

We still can't believe we lost such an incredible voice just months ago. This track is proof that Whitney's voice really WAS still up to par, contrary to what some might have been led to believe.

Sparkle hits theaters August 17 and we can only imagine that the whole audience will be brought to tears once this song plays!

Whitney will forever live on through her music and legendary voice.

William And Kate To Honor Princess Diana At Royal Wedding

Filed under: Royals RoyceKate MiddletonEvents

princess diana to be honored at royal wedding

Such a nice gesture!

Prince William and Kate Middleton plan to honor Princess Diana at the royal wedding by scheduling the first hymn sung to be Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer, which was the final hymn at Diana's funeral.

The hymn was also played during a memorial service for the tenth anniversary of Princess Diana's tragic death, making it a particularly significant tribute piece.

So sad that Diana couldn't be there for William's big day, but we think it's lovely how they plan to honor her at the ceremony.

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
