After working in the country music industry for over 50 years, Dolly Parton has made her fair share of famous friends.
During the 75th Anniversary celebration for The Grand Ole Opry, Parton had many of her fellow country singers join her on stage for a performance of the popular hymn "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?"
"Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" was written in 1907 by Ada R. Habershon, with Charles H. Gabriel writing the music for the tune. Despite being a popular song sung during church services, not many artists have recorded "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" Perhaps the most recognizable recording is one by The Youngbloods, which was released in 1972.
Parton's performance of the hymn starts out with her and Vince Gill singing together, with a choir of people wearing rhinestone-covered jackets behind them.
More and more stars come on stage every few seconds, lending their own voices to the hymn.
Each artist gets their own solo moment as they walk on stage, but by the end of the performance all of them sing together, producing an incredibly powerful sound.
We sure are glad that Parton brought all of her friends together for this star-studded performance!
I was standing by the window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
To carry my mother away
Well I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in that grave
I went back home Lord that home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone
