It’s been almost a week since NQC ’12 wrapped up. As I’ve been watching the webcast archives and reliving everything all over again, I’ve had random thoughts pop into my head that I felt needed to be written down. I may or may not have covered these points in my nightly recap, so I apologize if you read something from the list already.
Chris Allman is the best tenor in Southern Gospel, and I’m not sure it’s even close.
I hope they have a Jubilee main stage showcase next year.
Most solo acts don’t go over well on main stage, unless limited to just a song or two.
Likely the first and last time Jay Leno will be mentioned on main stage.
The Best of the Showcases were better than I’ve heard in previous years.
There’s a lot of great young artists coming up in SG.
TURN THE MIC ON!
Two popular songs right now (I Know A Man Who Can, I Wanna Know) are over 50 years old.
Songs sound so much better with live music rather than tracks only.
I’m so glad Gerald and others addressed some of the rumors about future NQCs.
Canned jokes are about as popular as canned music is.
It’s great to see TaRanda Greene back at NQC, and welcomed by artists with open arms.
It’s interesting to see how groups use the stage. Some move around more than others.
Sometimes the unplanned moments go over better than the planned. (Jim & Melissa Brady set)
It’s amazing how a group’s older songs often get a better response than the newer stuff.
Will there ever be a NQC without someone singing “Oh, What a Savior”?
Thanks for reading!
