Sing-Cough-Sing

The holiday season is a busy time for a gospel choir. 

Friday:  Mall of America Holiday Music Festival



We've sang at the MOA almost every year since the mid-90's.  It's always interesting to see who stops to watch/listen to a loud, rowdy group sing about Jesus.


Saturday:  Holidazzle Parade


It's been a few years (like 9?) since we've sang at Holidazzle.  Though it's super fun and unlike anything else we do, it may be another 9 before we attempt it again.  It's a really tough venue.  We have to sing acapella, while on a moving float, while remembering to smile and wave at the crowd, all in the freezing cold.  My upper lip went numb about 1/2 way through the ride, but I persevered.  Do you know how hard it is to sing Carol of the Bells with a numb lip?  Regardless, we had a great time.


Sunday:  Back in the studio




We came out with a pre-release last year, and this year we're working on getting the real deal perfected and in buyable form before our church concert on the 19th.  The tracks have been sent to Nashville for final mixing, and Steve is working on the cover art.  It's going to be awesome.

I did NOT know that you also sing! I sing with an entertainment company during the holidays so my entire weekend was filled with gigs and this weekend is starting to get booked up too.

And oh, Carol of the Bells. Plus, did you realize that some people don't know Sleigh Ride has lyrics? I don't understand that. Of course it has lyrics.

Nine West Snowdrift shoes.

You made me buy them! It's your fault!

Your blog is adorable. Have I posted that already somewhere?

It sounds like you've been having a lot of fun. Contests on recording!

Deborah: Good thing I'm banned from shopping or those Snowdrifts would be mine...I'm glad someone bought them!

We'll see if I can get through the weeks after the 30 for 30 without buying them.
