From the “Too good not to share” dept.
One benefit/risk of blogging about southern gospel is that you find out how the sausage is made pretty quickly. My interns turned deeply cynical some time ago (which is why I keep them in the basement of Avery HQ), and sometimes a dispatch from the inner rings of the industry will make its way to the subterranean mailroom and I’ll hear a collective chuckle and a “that’s about what I’d expect” coming from the intake team. Sometimes the news from our industrially embedded correspondents contradicts those jaundiced interns (rarely, but it happens). And then there are those messages that achieve a kind of architectural, monumental place in the annals of southern gospel. That’s the context for this email, which came our way a few days ago. It was received by an artist under contract with a major sg label, from a prominent sg radio promoter:
Hi its [xxxx]. I know you spoke to [xxxx] in my office at one time. I kept your song on my IPOD….. I am going crazy over your song!!!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I played it for President Obama, and he cried!!! He said it was his heart song….He said it painted his path so clearly of what God wished for his presidency. I just wanted to share this with you. If your in the DC area sometime, Id love to have you come by the White House. Not sure when we can plan this…But, it would be AMAZING….
WOW!! Great moment…the Lord fell…..
If I had smarter interns, they’d probably have come up with an audacity joke or something. But I don’t, so you’re gonna hafta talk amongst yourselves on this one.Email this Post
