Fort Mill is actually a suburb of Charlotte, so I'm very tempted to go visit this church. They've got to be doing some unique things for the Lord down there. The person who posted this clip on Youtube calls it a "great transgenerational cultural experient" and I agree.
I was struck by the commitment and dedication these folks have obviously given to this project. They do a version of Outkast's "Hey Ya!" that adds a flavor to the song I haven't heard before. Check out:
- The operatic cry of one of the women singers on "Hey Ya" (I got chills!)
- The lady scratching her chin while they're singing "Hey Ya!" as if to say, "Remind me again -- why are we doing this?"
-- The Director. He has taken this project seriously. He delivers his lines with force and commitment and in turn, expects the senior citizens to give it all they have.
-- The dancing during "Hot in Here." None of them crack a smile, which shows you how seriously they're taking this project. (The seniors aren't laughing, but you will be when you see it.)
Here it is. The First Baptist Church Senior Adult Choir doing their take on hip hop.
