We interrupt this regularly scheduled Q&A session for something... well, just different. I needed a break. You probably did, too =)
Since I couldn't watch Survivor tonight because I'm not caught up on back episodes, I turned on American Idol. I heard some buzz today about the show last night. It was Idol Gives Back, where they have different performances that can be downloaded and the proceeds go to charity. It's a nice thing they do. Tonight was a little bit of a continuation of that.
Evidently they closed the show last night, and performed it again tonight, with a song that shocked and thrilled me... and gave me goosebumps. It was the Christian praise song, Shout To The Lord. I couldn't believe it! They did a great job, even though they edited out the name of Jesus. It made me wonder if all these contestants were Christian. What if they weren't? How did they feel about singing such a song?
I've included a video I found at YouTube as well as a link in case the video doesn't work. When I found the video, I started reading some of the comments left - most of them positive. Then I noticed there were nearly 1200 comments, so I stopped reading. As you would think, some people weren't happy with the choice of song. Some thought American Idol and/or Fox would take some serious heat for their decision of performing this song. But most of the ones I read were very pleased with the choice and performance.
And check out my link of the day. It's a news story of an elderly lady ministering to a man who was trying to rob her. Amazing!
