Over the weekend Christopher and I went to Winter Jam here in Memphis!
10 bands for $10 at the door. Always an awesome night of worship! I love it every year!
This year my favorites were David Crowder, Colton Dixon, 10th Avenue North, Newsong, and newcomer Sarah Reeves. I’d never heard of Sarah before, but her voice was gorgeous and her lyrics were so powerful! I loved her songs “Details” and “Faithful”! SO good!
Christopher’s favorite was definitely David Crowder because he loves that style of music. This is our 3rd time hearing him perform and I think it was my favorite of the three. He played a couple of his songs acoustically and the whole crowd sang along. It was beautiful. And powerful.
On a funny note: there were a couple of hip hop/rap songs performed by different artists complete with crazy strobe lights and every teenager around us rapping along… those songs officially made me feel like an old person. We have mentored teenagers for over a decade so I tend to keep up with trends in music, social media, and fashion pretty well (even if I don’t follow along – I still “get it”). But during those songs I had flashbacks to my mom walking into my room when I was a teenager and asking me what on earth my loud rap music was. I told her it was a Christian group called POD and she just kind of looked quizzically at me and said “okay…” I didn’t understand it at the time, but I totally do now. How do these teenagers understand any of the words? It just sounds loud! Yeah, I’m officially an out-of-touch-with-today’s-youth’s-music old person. 😉
