I'm A Believer!

Happy Constitution Day!

I was blessed to witness with Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping this evening here in Iowa. The Good Reverend was here to preach his gospel to a bunch of stick-in-the-mud, under-emotional Scandinavian-descended Lutherans whom wouldn't know a call-and-response if it came up and bit them in the ass. Would it have killed this audience to get and move with the message?

The Choir and Rev. Billy, despite the icy audience, were on game. I got to hear the linked clip live and the soloist (Laura Newman?) was . . astounding. Yes, I would much rather sing that every morning than recite the Pledge of Allegiance. As someone once said, "I bleed Red, White & Blue. Just different shades".

And Alto Gina Figueroa is a demi-goddess.

Oh well, I had fun. And I'm adding the Reverend's Church to our links. And, yes Savitri, I'm the guy in Hawaiian shirt. I meant every word I said and about a 1000 more.

I liked her. Even tho I could not figure out what language she was singing in.

It was a good vid to wake up to, but I am confused.

Is this an actual church? A real preacher? And were you really pictured in the audience?

Please help and be gentle, I am particularly gullible in the morning.

This was cool, idio. I like the whole "I'm a constitution voter" mindset. Having grown up in the age of Schoolhouse Rock, this is a nostalgia piece.
