Last Sunday as a part of our series on "Time" and how God gives us different seasons in life and we must pray for discernment about following His will, we did a song called "Seasons of Love" from the Broadway musical, RENT.

The music from RENT is absolutely awesome. The story from RENT is about the most depressing ever. I think it hit me that way because the characters just seem so lacking in real Hope. Their lives are about the here and now and I just don't believe that that's all there is to it. I believe we have a greater Hope than what is seen.

Here's a clip of the group singing last Sunday. A couple of disclaimers...one, it's live. Two, the sound is not balanced. For some reason the bass parts cannot be heard at all. (Not Phil's fault...in fact, THANKS to Phil for doing a fantastic job and for recording it period!!) So...listen with grace. :) Justin and Laura did a fantastic job! The singers were: Laura Troup, Justin Mundie, Eve English, Sheryl, Amy Westerman, Amanda Vickers, Jason McArthur, Blake Jones, and me.

Comments from the Sound Guy:

sorry about the high pitched whine. It's an issue that I haven't been able to pinpoint.

I can BARELY hear the basses in some parts, but not very well at all.

I apologize for the quality of the recording and it sounded really cool on Sunday morning. Great job by BST and the rest of the singers that day.

Brandon...I dare you...I mean REALLY DARE YOU...to use this and some other "crossover" songs on the next or some other future Zoe project. If Zoe is leading the way for worship in the c of C, lead with redeeming the world's songs for God's purposes. "So R U 2 Me" was wading in those waters, use this, and others to go there. Lead the way. I DARE YOU!!!!

Sorry, it's just a passion of mine. Why should the Devil have all the good music? :)

Loved it Brandon...I am hearing a lot of songs in a new way these days and that was beautiful.
