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.
