At the Dardenne Gospel Jubilee, we followed a blue grass group, Johnny and Jack. They did a fantastic job and it was a very relaxing start to evening. Evidence opened with a song I wrote with Jeremy Rodriguez, "High Up On The Rock," and we were so thrilled that Jeremy came to play live piano for us! It was a great start to our portion of the concert! One of the songs that seemed to really touch the audience was, "In God We Still Trust." Ashlee sang the lead vocal and her powerful delivery roused enthusiastic patriotism. Julie and Jacqueline both revved it up on songs like, "Singin' in the Rain" and "Count Your Blessings." It's wonderful to see such positive, energetic faces in the audience! Our a cappella arrangements of "The Lord's Prayer" and "There is a Fountain" both received special responses and comments afterward, also. For me, the highlight of the evening was also our closing number, "Then Came the Morning." I saw grown men weeping and many teary eyed smiles when we sang about the resurrection of Christ! Thank you to Dardenne Baptist for sharing in that night and making those precious memories with us!
If you missed it, it's not too late to hear our Gospel set! We have another Gospel concert coming up on Nov. 8 at First Baptist Church of Harvester and it's an open invitation!
Our pastor at FBCH recently spoke on Servanthood and how God has uniquely shaped each of us so that we are passionate about serving in specific areas ( http://fbch.com/messages/podcast.xml). I feel a strong affirmation in my spirit that the women of Evidence are serving the Kingdom exactly where and how they are supposed to be. We were made to make music and we're giving it our best. We're learning a lot along the way and growing in ways you couldn't imagine. And hopefully God will use our faithfulness to reap a harvest.
Tonight we begin rehearsing for Christmas! We are so excited to develop our next set of concert songs for the upcoming holiday season! Most of all, we're looking forward to sharing it with you.
