Three2U is Joe Tenney, Jon Beuhner and Richard Talbot of Gilbert, Arizona.
"Deep Peace" is an amazing album! "One More Day" was recorded in memory of three special friends who died in their youth: Azure Starkes, Charlee Hawkins and Skylar Stock.
In 2008 while Joe's family was traveling between Heber and Taylor, Arizona (near Snowflake) they encountered an accident 30 seconds after it happened. Azure was alone with her 1-year-old baby. With the car upside down, Joe's son-in-law rescued the baby from the back seat unharmed and without a scratch, but as Joe administered CPR to Azure, she did not revive. Joe recalls an 'overarching' feeling and the undeniable peace of God that attended them at the scene of the accident.
Charlee was a good friend of Jon and Richard. As a teenager, she contracted cancer in her little finger. After the finger was amputated, she received the nick-name "Nine." However the cancer continued to spread through her body. Undaunted, she determined to graduate from high school even with the pain of her progressing cancer. She was finally disabled and her diploma was delivered to her at home. She died 45 minutes later.
Skylar's parents were good friends to Richard and his wife. Skylar was a fine husband, a good father and an excellent fire fighter. He was on a trip elk hunting with a good friend when a strong wind blew a tree over onto him in a freak accident. His funeral was attended by well over 1000 people.
Azure, Charlee, and Skylar have been great inspirations to many, including Three2U. Please watch this Three2U tribute:

We invite you to check out our latest video of “The Star Spangled Banner,” which includes the last, and what Jon, Richard, and I believe is the most powerful and poignant verse of Francis Scott Key’s inspired work. We would love your feedback and hope that you will send this link to all those who hold a love for this great land of America in their hearts…and also to send it to those who maybe just need a “little reminder” of what this country stands for—the sanctity of the constitution which is being attacked on all fronts, and the incredible price of liberty that was paid (with blood) by so many valiant patriots, past and present. - Joe Tenney.
This is one of the best versions of the Star Spangled Banner I have ever heard - Carl Watkins
