I found myself weeping in the opening ceremony when "Jerusalem" and "Bread of heaven" was sang in the first few minutes. However the closing ceremony had a profound closure about it. George Michael sang his new song "White light." The lyrics reflect his near death experience last year.
"Something divine, oh divine, brought me back to you," "So I just Kept breathing my friends. Was it music that saved me ? Or the way that you prayed for me ? Cause either way I thank you I'm alive."
Entering the stage singing freedom, wearing a diamante encrusted scull on his belt and a crucifix around his neck one wonders whether he is closer to the truth than he realises. "The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is everlasting life in Christ Jesus" Romans 6:23.
