In humility…

Remember how I mentioned the other day that I’d felt a tad self-conscious on Sunday when I realised that my position on the stage made me a prime candidate for being filmed? That I’m not a great dancer and that being in a gospel choir necessitates moves? That my face was apparently on screen a lot?

One commenter said he was disappointed that the post wasn’t accompanied by a video. In reply, I stated that I would ‘sacrifice my own dignity for the sake of highlighting a truly awesome performance’, perhaps complacent in the knowledge that in the 4 years of being in this choir no such footage has ever emerged on YouTube. Another commenter mentioned how much they’d laugh if such a video showed up…

Well, it seems that this is the year my luck changed. I’ve just had an e-mail with a YouTube link in that showcases our final performance of Kirk Franklin’s Hosanna. It was most definitely my favourite song of the night and, were it not for the fact that you can’t get it on iTunes, I’d have listened to it countless times since Sunday. Instead there’s Spotify and this video of him performing it live (watch ours first though, else we’ll look bad in comparison!).

Enough procrastinating…here it is!
I’m in the centre, second row up – just opposite the conductor. When the mum filming it zooms in to capture her son in full flow, you also get a great view of my face. At around 4.36 you catch a glimpse of my head filling the ENTIRE screen above us, which of course happens just at the moment when I do my classic ‘head toss’ dance move. I had no idea the cameraman went in so close! Shocking.

The sound quality’s not as good as it might have been, but hopefully you get the idea. I’m so proud to be part of such a lovely, passionate group of singing people. Love it!
