Quote of the day
Jacob [Kitson] should not have been nominated [for SN fan awards in the tenor category]. If you sing for Greater Vision you win awards. Had he joined the day the ballots went out, he still would have been nominated. Steve is one of the best to come along in many years. Jacob is a good lead singer but not much of a tenor. I know the loyal GV fans are screaming am me right now but come on, when he did “little as much” at NQC, he went off key numerous times yet the “cool-aid drinkers” gave him a standing O. That seems to be the sad truth in SG. If you sing or ever have sung with a popular group, you will forever be mentioned as a great singer no matter what. If some of the names mentioned to replace Steve are the best out there, Gold City is in severe trouble.
This point has probably been made before, but it’s worth restating: there’s nothing wrong with awards for fan favorites. The trouble is when performers and publicists (and more than a few fans) purposefully equate “favorite” with musical ability because they’d rather be (or be associated with) the appearance of musical success than the thing itself.Email this Post
