Randy Stonehill 50 years in ministry kickstarter project is fully funded.

Last Month Ray Ware, Randy Stonehill's longtime manager and bestfriend, launched a kickstarter project to produce an album to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of Born Twice, Stonehill's first album.  The Album will have various artists performing Stonehill songs from the last 1/2 century.  The link to the project (which is now fully funded and closed for contributions) is found here.

The album will be  entitled "There's  A Rainbow Somewhere" which are lyrics from his song King of Hearts.  I was excited to hear about the project and it is the first kickstarter project that I have ever been a backer of.  To celebrate funding I am sharing the song King of Hearts here.
