Oklahoma UMC entry wins “youTube” award

April 11, 2007

With almost two million views since last November, a video showing a six-year-old girl singing in Cache UMC in Oklahoma placed second in the inspirational category for the first YouTube Video Awards.


The video-sharing Web site announced winners of its inaugural awards March 26. “Best inspirational” was one of seven categories. Users ranked the videos during a weeklong voting period.


The second-place inspiration video shows Heather Martin, accompanied by her mother on piano, singing a song about her soldier brother, Shaun, serving in Iraq. Their mother, Cindy Martin, wrote the song. — UMNS
