“planned spontaneity.” onemadeupmind is RIGHT!!!
The VERY FIRST TIME I had JADED thoughts about Gospel Music was as a YOUNG Man of about 10.
My Uncle dated a daughter of a well known GM Player. I lived in Chattanooga, but we would go to Mull’s Singing Conventions in all the markets her was in. Knoxville & Chattanooga for this story.
1 night Thanksgiving in Knox & Friday in Chatt.
Goodman’s on the line up.
They came out without Vestal, After the first song which was some SAD SLOW song Sam told us that Vestal was sick. Had been at the hospital all day, they did not know what was wrong with her. She’d had a HIGH FEVER!! HE HAD SPECIAL PRAYER for HER!!! They sang a couple more songs… then they introduced a song and said that normally Vestal did it but rusty was going to try to sing it.
“…pray for Rusty as he tries to sing GOD WALKS THE DARK HILL…”
Rusty does his best and struggles through the tears of the first verse and chorus.
What do you think happened BOTH DAYS!!!??? 2 nights in a row…
JUST IN TIME to come out from behind the curtain to sing The Second Verse…
Sister Vestal got HEALED!!!
BOTH NIGHTS the PLACE BROKE freakin’ DOWN!!!
People were screamin’, shouting and yes Irishlad they were running up and down the aisles SPEAKING IN TONGUES & Looking for SNAKES!!! LoL;-)))
[snip]It is much harder than most ppl know to do live performance night after night.
In any kind of performance about the time you get SICK of doing something is about the time you are getting GOOD @ IT!!
