Found that Julie Rogers video about three years ago but couldn't find it since--kept forgetting her name. But made comments under the video back then that Julie Rogers must have had a good sense of humour singing such a beautiful religious song while being backed by The Animals.

How apropos to gay marriage.

More funny...


Her 1964 hit "The Wedding" went to #3 in the UK Singles Chart,#1 in Australia and #10 in the US, in addition to topping the US Adult Contemporary chart.[3] In 1961 "The Wedding" had been successful for Anita Bryant and Malcolm Vaughan, but Rogers' recording outsold them both.[1] At the time of the release of "The Wedding", Rogers told the NME that she wanted to become an international artist.[4] "The Wedding" was estimated by 1972 to have sold over seven million copies.[1]

--Anita Bryant was famous for opposing the gay community in Florida during the 1970's.

Still see this gay marriage thing as a bad idea. Gay community's emphasis on celebrating diversity, and "integration not assimilation", mean Civil Union is the most appropiate term for gay partnerships.
