was is one of my favorite bands. Martin Smith’s voice was an experience in itself. Here’s a group of guys who have sold out Wembley Stadium and they were playing to a couple hundred people in Clovis, CA last night! Like their song, "History Maker" kind of talks about, these 5 guys have changed and effected change in so many ways around this world. I can’t imagine how the journey has come from, "hey, check out this chorus I just wrote! I could sing of your love forever. Do you like it?" in some living room in England, to recording that same song in 20-30 different languages for people all around the world! What a trip.
Vicky Beeching opened up the show and she was really good too. A classic, worship leader, who, I’m sure we will be hearing for years to come. Rebecca St. James was just what I expected. It was very late 90’s feeling. The colors, the songs, the style…I didn’t care for it. (Go to bathroom and visit the T-shirt table at this part of the show). But Delirious came through in the end. I wish I could get my hands on what they were showing on the screens behind them. So creative. It’s just amazing to be in a worship experience like that. They are definitely just blessed by God with the gift of leading others in worship. It’s that simple. I laughed, I cried, I jumped, all in all: great concert. Now there are only 2 other groups/people I must see before I die. U2 and Matt Redman.
