Feb 4th 2016 Obama addressed a packed Washington Hilton. Special guest speakers where “Touch by and Angel” star Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett Film TV producer and now President of MGM, including Andrea Bocelli as special guest singer and Ben Carson Presidential candidate plus Morgan Freeman as he playing Sheik Ilderim in new Ben Hur movie produced by Mark and Roma film company Lightworks Media.
Obama shared one of his scriptures from 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”
What really interesting is that Roma and Mark have produced a remake of Ben Hur – you will see on this blog site a short version cut of my own from the 1959 Bur Hur film that stared Charlton Heston. You will learn from listening to Roma and Mark their story of coming to USA – coming from Mark in British Army and Roma living in Irish village that experienced the scary times of 60s and 70’s during IRA battles.
Check out the links – it is a wonderful story. Alan
