When the space shuttle Columbia exploded on February 1, 2003 there were some wonderful Christian people on board. One of those was Col. Rick Husband. Col. Rick Husband was an active choir member at his church in Texas. Not long before the shuttle's departure, his choir made a recording of many popular worship songs. The recording also featured one new song entitled "Breath of the Spirit," written by Rebecca Peck. Col. Rick Husband took the CD on board with him to play for the crew (he was a featured soloist on the recording). After the incoming shuttle exploded, the CD was found in the yard of a Texan. Though the front was charred, the back was clearly readable. Some of the last music the astronauts heard before entering eternity was worship music to God.
The song "Even In The Valley written by Rebecca J. Peck and Amy Marie Zika was named the #1 Song of the Year by the Singing News Magazine. We would like to thank The Whisnants for an incredible performance of this song.
