Collin Hansen highlights a few of the most significant events of 2014.
Watts’s father issued a challenge. He told Watts that if he struggled with the songs they sang, then he ought to do something about it. Perhaps he should attempt to write something different.

Little did he know that this song would spark a joyful noise that would ring through the ages.
