CHARLESTON - A local woman sang her heart out on Thursday on the floor of the West Virginia Senate
Merry Hanning of Oak Hill said she loves to sing. Hanning has been a resident of Oak Hill her entire life and was honored to be invited to sing by Senator William Laird. The morning session began with a prayer and the singing of 'Amazing Grace'. Hanning said it is her favorite song.
Hannig said, "it's the one song that I have done so much throughout the years and it's appropriate to open a legislative body I think."
Hanning's performance was given a standing ovation and her song set the mood for the rest of the legislative session.
