NewsOK's Kyle Roberts was on hand Saturday to pick up the hardware. Roberts worked with Greg Singleton, Todd Fraser and Dave Morris on this project.

The video features world-renowned violinist Kyle Dillingham as he performs “How Great Thou Art” in an abandoned warehouse in downtown Oklahoma City. He performs on several broken instruments to highlight the message: in our own brokenness there is beauty.

The video accompanied The Oklahoman’s Thanksgiving centerpiece in 2013. An interview with Dillingham and George Lang can be seen here: and The Oklahoman previously won an Emmy last year for “Thunder In Motion” in the “Commercial – Single Spot” category. You can watch that spot here: and The Oklahoman have received five Emmy nominations since launching a video department in 2007.

The Heartland chapter includes these markets/DMAs: Denver, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Wichita/Hutchinson, Omaha, Colorado Springs/Pueblo, Lincoln/Hastings-Kearney, Topeka, Grand Junction/Montrose, Cheyenne/Scottsbluff and North Platte.
