President-elect Biden quotes “Eagle’s Wings”

President-elect Joe Biden quoted the beloved song “On Eagle’s Wings” at the end of his victory speech last night. Watch it here.

Surely this is a first in a presidential victory speech. Shoutout and congratulations to composer Fr. Michael Joncas!

  1. Congratulations to Mike Joncas! It is not every day that a living composer hears his work quoted in a presidential acceptance speech. We already knew that On Eagles Wings had achieved “classic status” but this is another affirmation of its cultural resonance. Well done, Fr. Joncas!
