The title song from a Christian film is up for an Academy Award this year. The song for the movie “Alone Yet Not Alone” is sung by Joni Eareckson Tada. Joni is a quadriplegic who was injured in a diving accident in the Chesapeake Bay as a teenager. In her limited capacity throughout her life since the accident she has become an author, artist, singer, radio personality and an advocate for the disabled. Because of her limited lung capacity as a quadriplegic her husband had to assist her by pressing on her diaphragm in order for her to have enough air in her lungs to hit the high notes during the recording of the song. An amazing woman who still gives God the Glory for the great things He continues to do in her life in spite of her affliction.
