Alabama superintendent lifts ban on 'Amazing Grace'

ELMORE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Elmore County School Superintendent Dr. Andre Harrison has reversed a decision he made earlier this week regarding a song that was to be performed by a high school band this upcoming football season.

Controversy arose earlier this week when the hymn Amazing Grace was pulled from the halftime set list of the Holtville High School Marching Band after Harrison's office received a complaint.

According to Harrison, his office received the complaint and was then contacted twice by the same person about the constitutionality of the band playing the song.

Harrison says that after consulting with legal counsel and receiving what he says to be an admittedly conservative recommendation, Harrison decided to remove the song from the Holtville halftime show.
