The VIDEO BELOW is being posted as one of a pair, the other being “Hope Is A Home: Danny Gokey’s Benefit Concert for Emmanuel House.” Gokey, third place finalist in 2008’s American Idol, did an exciting, bells-and-whistles benefit for our family’s foundation Emmanuel House this past October 3rd. It was one of the best concerts I’ve attended in a while, and by far the best “Christian” concert ever for me. Emmanuel House helps disrupt the poverty cycle for working families.
The VIDEO BELOW is of a much smaller performance, but one just as precious—oh, much more so! It’s our 6-year-old granddaughter Micah performing here as the youngest member of the Plymouth Rock Singers, the children’s choir at her church.
No doubt our Puritan heritage is still one of the bedrocks of American culture, reaching into every corner of life in our bodies, our spirits, our obsessions. So Plymouth Rock is more than just the place some of our forefathers and mothers first set their feet down. In this light, it’s not exactly the name I’d pick for a children’s choir—but enough academic mumbling for now! Enjoy.
