Listening to the recording of last week to hear what in the world transpired... And i'm laughing so hard cos at the end of the youth service, our senior pastor was leading us in the song "History Maker" and he was singing so much faster to urge us (the worship team and the congregation) to "beat it" (pick up the speed) and he was dancing and asking us to SWAGGER and saying to us, "Hey, i'm 62 years old!" "Swagger! C'mon!" Boy, am I hooting away.
I'm also very amused and chuckling over how my fingers tend to "spasm" or "fall asleep" or something, and i either miss pressing a key on the piano or i play a second too fast and so i throw the tempo/rhythm off.
I also got to experience for the first time from another perspective the kind of impact a synthesizer musician makes as both supporter and also at the forefront during praise and worship. I've been one for the longest time and never could fully appreciate the part played till when the roles were switched.
There's one thing that i'm so thankful for, and that was the freedom released by my youth pastor for me to just be free to release a song! I believe that all the other musicians/singers can and should do that! It's MAD scary but gosh, you REALLY just tune in to God and play out His heart...
And you'll be amazed at the kind of sound that rises up... I know i was.
