And Blogging from the Democratic National Convention

Me. Well, not really. I didn't make it to Denver but am happy that a large group of political bloggers were able to attend. I just thought the title might intrigue you. Actually I am blogging about a random thought I just had related to the DNC.

I have C-Span on my tv in the background as I work and they are replaying Sunday's Interfaith service. Richard Smallwood, a gospel singer performed one of my favorite songs, The Praise Anthem. It has all of the things that I like - good singing, great music (replete with full orchestra) and the word of God. I think that the choir was a little nervous at the convention because they tried to keep the emotion to a minimum. I laughed at that because I knew everyone would soon be on their feet. And I was right. This song is so moving you will probably jump out of your seat - okay maybe not, but you will tap your feet.

Anyhow, if you need some uplifting or just want to hear some great music watch the video below. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Yeah, I will tuning in for the DNC. I hope Clinton's people can get it together to vote for Obama.

Definitely tuning in! My friend Keely lives in Denver and will be at the convention. I am so, so jealous.

I'm just boggled by American politics! Somehow it seems to be easier in Canada. Good luck with your candidate winning!

I loved the video. You are right...it's truly uplifting and as a flute player, I loved the orchestral beginning too.

Jamie said...

I have to agree with Marlaine.... this Canadian is VERY ignorant when it comes to American politics......
