  •  I'd never actually heard Callen sing this solo. (3+ / 0-)

    His singing voice is higher than his talking voice. Very moving. Thanks, Wisco.

    I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, alive as you and me.

      I got to join in one time when Jenna was back in town and she, myself, OLB Chris and Jason Louise sang a quintet from the diamonds with Callen when we crossed paths.  It was terrifying to think that we were in violation of the "4 or more equals a rally" permitting requirement!!  It was so powerful, I could barely get any sound to come out of my mouth, even after singing in the Capitol a hundred times.

      I didn't know if any video of his daily performance existed, so I'm glad I decided to look it up on Youtube at the last minute.  Incredibly moving.

      Here's the picture from that day:
