James, Can You Sing Solo?

January 23, 2012

So low I can’t hear you!

This video was sent to me by Davo Hynds. I’m not sure if we should thank him or not.

Hey,

I love your blog, and comment on it from time to time. Anyways, knowing your sick, twisted pleasure for youtube videos that mix religion and mediocre or abysmal talent, I thought you really needed to see this.

And what did he feel I should see? Merely, one of the most terrible church performances ever, and introduced with a self-aggrandizing speech of ridiculous proportions once you hear the ‘singing’:

And just in case you thought this was a one-off, or that the people in the audience only had to be tortured by one song, or that maybe he was just having one bad performance because he started off key or something:

Most reasonable comment on Youtube that describes the experience of sitting through these two videos:

I feel like somebody took a 12 gauge shotgun shell, filled it with shards of glass, and shot it into my eardrums, then poured salt water into my ear, then screamed obscenities at me with a bull horn. That’s how I feel.

Oh, and I feel violated.

Yep, that about sums it up!

    “Lookin’ for a City” = #1 seed come March. Or you could just crown him now and we would all agree.

    Please start a campaign to get the “best” of these Christian artists together for one night of unforgettable worship. Mr. Canupp, K&K Mime, the blonde twin girls, William Tapley, the Chrisagis Brothers, and that really white guy who does the awkward hip hop dancing while singing bad worship songs in his 80s throw-back suit while telling the sound guy to turn it up the whole time.

    Andy Kaufman wannabe that staged this in a building with a few folk

    Not very original in that respect

    I tried to listen all the way to the end, I really did. Painful way to start the day.

    Nothing quite so sacreligious as a pig caller calling down the Holy Spirit . . .

    The crowd actually cheered. First Gingrich wins the primary, now this? Maybe the Carolinas are some kind of opposite-land or something. Refresh my memory…why did we stop them from seceding?

    If you ever want to do a runoff for “Worst Christian Singing Voice”, you’ve got a semi-finalist right here.

    My question is, what has he got on the pastor/leader or whatever that he is allowed to do this “singing”.
