Shaking the Rafters


What do you get when you mix a group of white, middle-class wanna-be Gospel singers with a group of black, inner-city absolutely-dynamic singers?

One amazing Gospel concert that blew the roof off the church Sunday night.

We've been practicing now for weeks...learning new songs, learning the tempos, learning how to inject a little "soul" into our singing.

We hooked up with the inner-city church and put on a free concert Sunday night - 90 minutes of some amazing, tear-inducing music that shook the rafters of the church and had people on their feet, clapping and "woo-hooing" for more.

My vocal chords are fried...but my heart is full with the power of the music. It got to me, that's for sure. I don't have much to post today - still recovering from last night. My lungs got a work-out - I had to reach down deep to pull it all out.

But it was awesome. It really was.

Peace.

You're very welcome! I usually save the awards by right-clicking on them, then saving them, then uploading them as a picture file. Hmmmm, I'm not sure why it isn't working for you! I'm going to upload the photos onto my sidepanel, so check it out there, maybe it will work better for you!
