The team and I were in Orlando Monday and Tuesday leading worship at the National Assemblies of God convention. We had a great time. Lots of fun with the people there at the convention. We led at a couple of the leadership gatherings, and then led at the first of the general sessions.
The LED screens which were part of the production in the general session were awesome. And during sound check we thought Adam Lambert might be jumping out at any minute.
Anyway, one of the pluses of being in Orlando is that is where our girl, Lici lives. Lici has been a part of our worship team for a little over three years now. Lici is an amazing singer - unbelievably versatile, and so good every time she steps out on the platform. Not to mention that she is one of the funniest people on the planet. We LOVE having her with us. Last year, we were so happy that she was offered a job at Disney World, singing with the Voices of Liberty at the America Exhibit in Epcot. She works there during the week, then joins us on the weekend wherever we are ministering. Since we were in Orlando, she made a way for us to come into the park on Tuesday to see her do her thing with Voices. We were so giddy about breezing into Epcot even for a couple of hours...I'm telling you, every single one of us got verklempt as we stepped off the Monorail.
We made our way to the very back of Epcot as fast as we could (after swinging by the Soarin' ride to see if we could snatch a fastpass - which we couldn't), and pointed and laughed and reminisced at every sight and smell.
We finally made it to the America exhibit and waited for their set to start. We knew they would be awesome. They did not disappoint.
Us again, along with Lici's friend Jeremy (who also sings with Avalon...he is a great singer)...
It was some great a cappella singing. Lici tore up their version of "Summertime." We were giddy with pride. Nirva even cried.
We love you Lici! Thanks for the fun day!
