ABC TV was live last night from Nicaragua for Nik Wallenda’s dangerous high wire walk over an active volcano. While there wasn’t a whole lot of play-by-play, Wallenda filled the dead space by singing Bethel Music’s “No Longer Slaves,” and thanking Jesus repeatedly.
As Nik began literally walking above the volcano, he sang Hillsong United’s “Another In The Fire,” followed by Bethel Music’s “Raise a Hallelujah.”
