on the off chance that you didn’t see it in a tweet, on my facebook or in an email, i wanted to post a link to my new music video.
a few weeks ago when we decided we wanted to teach the Beatitudes to start the year, i really wanted a song that would allow kids to learn the songs.
so beau picked up a guitar and we got writing… we read multiple versions of the bible and found different ways to communicate them. because they aren’t simple. they require explanation, they dont use words that are typically used to describe things. once we ran across the phrase “all heaven applauds” we knew what to do. mostly.
so… beau made some recordings.
i recorded some scratch vocals using my phone over the recording to send to jeremy.
jeremy, beau and josh performed and recorded the instruments. jeremy made them wonderful.
yesterday, brooke recorded the vocals with jeremy (i’m in there for the ‘hey hey hey’). last night jeremy sent me the song.
this morning i talked to emmy and made a plan for the video… was planning to use my phone camera because i didn’t have a video camera. talked to dyba about background, and he said brian zimmerman would be available to help instead (he shuddered at my phone suggestion)
emmy and i got the props ready. at 3:15 brian shot the video. at 5:00 i uploaded a completed lyric video to the dropbox for use on all of our campuses! whew! what an awesome turn of events.
thought you might find it interesting. i’m just standing here in awe of God and friends that made so much effort to coordinate the details of this project.
it is scripture, so it will not return void. YEA! I love that.
