This will be a quick post. I had then opportunity to watch the webcast of the Legacy Five concert that took place last weekend down in Florida. It was definitely a new experience. This was my first time watching a concert webcast. I also believe this is the first solo concert I’ve “attended” that wasn’t EHSS.
I started out like I was going to do a full song-by-song review. However I didn’t have the energy then nor have the time now to do that. So I will share some comments:
-Glenn Dustin may be the best bass singer in southern gospel music today. He may not get the lowest, but he just is one of the better sounding basses out on the road. I wish he wouldn’t move around and swap back and forth so much when he sings (especially on We Shall See Jesus), but I can live with that.
-Similarly, Tim Parton is probably the best pianist on the road. I had no idea how good he is. I also like how he provides some vocals, when needed.
I thought I had more to share, but it slipped my mind, so I’ll leave you with this. I’m grateful that Legacy 5 treats these concerts more as church than as a performance. Everything seems to always point back to Christ in their concerts. I absolutely love how Scott can get a little preachy. I sometimes wish more southern gospel artists had that in them. Sure its important for the groups to do these concerts as a form of income, but whats more important is the “income” of the kingdom at these concerts. How many souls are being touched.
I’ve heard it said many times in regards to a certain other group. “Are you entertaining or ministering?” The answer can be both, but in no way should a group’s answer be entertaining, but not witnessing. If that’s the case, maybe they should consider coming off the road. The earthly reward of traveling and singing is probably not much when you compare to other professions. However, what’s important is the heavenly reward, for those on stage and for those who are hearing the Gospel message through song..
