Last Saturday my husband surprised me with a once in a lifetime opportunity. He is a church music director and we both have been musicians for many years (that's how we met). He arranged for us to meet this guy:
For those of you who don't follow Christian contemporary music, this is Michael W. Smith, who is probably one of the best known and prolific songwriters in this genre. This alone would have been very cool, but we had a very unique way of "meeting" him:
That's us in the back - we're in the backup choir!! There were 40 voices in the choir and we rehearsed all day with Michael's fabulous music director, David Hamilton
It was so exciting - and challenging! Because my dear husband wanted it to be a surprise, I didn't get to see the music until that morning (on the way to the theater). Still, the opportunity to sing in a concert with Michael W. Smith and a full orchestra was amazing:
What a great time! Thanks Kent! Thank you David Hamilton! Thank you Michael!
