Quote of the day

I had meant to post this a bit ago but it lost in the shuffle of my auto-publish queue. No matter, from David Bruce Murray: “Most groups don’t sing a cappella for the same reason most people don’t go naked in public.”

    Not much on shameless plugs, but I figured I’d try my hand at it. lol Here’s an
    a cappella clip we did a few years ago at a concert.

    Yes, SHAMEFUL..oh I mean…Shameless, I thought you were going to do it naked.

    Well I’m not one to toot the group’s own horn…lol…Just thought I would contribute to this thread with a clip of our group singing an a cappella song. And if it were to be done naked, I don’t believe youtube would allow it anyhow. lol

    Great clip jeremy!

    While I don’t wish to be rude, I have to offer that the worst possible outcome would be a SGM nude, a cappella group…although it might be quite a drawing card for some of the less well attended SGM concerts and shows. It would likely be one of the only groups not to appear on a Gaither TV production!

    Sounds kinda like GC’s arrangement from A Cappella Gold…but not quite the same though! Still good stuff…

    I can picture it: a nude SG quartet, each looking askance at the others as they sing “He Touched Me”. (Now I have to go bleach my eyes!)

    No one can sing acappella like the Martins. I loved them!

    When you read about a group such as GVB doing a “private” concert could it be of the naked/accapella variety…i wonder what they would sing? mmmmm.

  14. William wrote:

    I don’t think this is real, at least I hope not, but if it is, all this nude singing would be welcome here (they may have their own quartet).

    Maybe you should check out the Isaacs. The do incredible accapella singing. Truly a wonderful thing to hear when they do.

    Here is a video of L5’s latest lineup (with Gus Gaches) singing a A Capella reprise of Boundless Love. I have to say that they pull it off quite well. So not all groups are afraid to “expose” themselves… :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdCt1UoU77M

  17. Wade wrote:

    Yeah I agree with Lynn… I could watch The Isaacs sing nekked!!! Especially if Ben in the other guys stand in the rear!!! No pun intended!!

    I didn’t realize that singing a cappella was illegal.
