NQC Highlights #3
Didn’t catch everything tonight. but our church services was great. Came home in time for the end of the Rambo tribute.
1. Although I didn’t see everything, I’m sure the Rambo Tribute was special and probably one of the biggest highlights of the night, at least for those in the crowd and the artists. I don’t even have to question myself on that one.
2. Gerald danced with EHSS. That’s certainly a highlight. There was a video floating around.
3. Greater Vision sounded great tonight. “Like I Wish I’d Lived” was stripped down, and hushed the crowd. Allman has this subtle way of drawing the crowd in to truly listen without all the histrionics. He just sings. And seems to be real when he does it.
4. I had heard word that the Freemans were pretty good. Is that confirmed?
5. I LOVE Janet Paschal, but I turned the volume down so I could watch the last few minutes of a soccer game. I’m sure she was her usual self.
6. Same for John Ashcroft. I was so into the game by this time, I didn’t even look at the screen. I wrote a whole article on the guy. I can’t believe I missed his performance.
7. Just in time for the Crist Family. They really seem like a sweet family. And I don’t hate to hear them, so that’s a good start. But it is time to dig a little deeper in the songbook. I just can’t get engaged in most of their songs.
8. A little Sisters & GV. Very well done. Especially for something that is not very common for them to do. Did it seem like the Sisters had stacks? I know their harmony is tight, but it all sounded good. There is something about family harmony though, that can’t be replaced. I might hit the road with my brothers and sisters.
9. When Jason Crabb sings “Sometimes I Cry”, I don’t move. I sit sheepishly and listen. When he sings a song like that in the way he sings it, I have nothing else to do but listen and trance out. I ask my wife if how well he would do in other genres and she confirms he’d probably do very well.
10. Gold City didn’t bring their A game, but they sounded pretty good. Keeton is finding his niche with the Riley’s and West is finding his way out of the niche. On their features, they all pretty well.
11. I think Triumphant is great. My wife fell asleep during “Love Came Calling”, but I think it was due to the relaxing mood of the song. Nothing like thousands of snotty hankies being pulled out of purses and pockets. Clayton has fun with that.
12. Play another video of Compassion International tonight. Keep doing it ’til they all decide to donate.
* Bonus. Everyone loved Kim Hopper’s shoes. Not her dress.
