Praiseband Bloopers: Lord Reign in Me

Hey there readers of Gracepoint Worship blog, just wanted to announce a new genre here called Praiseband Bloopers. Aside from what you see on Fridays and Sundays, we are all human and do make the mistakes. Just to prove that point and hopefully add some joy to your day, here’s the first one.

The context (From David):

It was the weekend of the college retreat with Pastor Ed and Kelly Kang, so Sunday Worship Service  at Berkeley Gracepoint was just the Praxis group.  As a result, we had a certain Praxis director whos four letter name starts with T and ends with Y leading along with Po, Richard on drums, Eric (electric guitar debut), guitar (I think Eileen), bass (Richard teej) and singers Debbie and myself. The reason why it happened was because we were supposed to repeat the last chorus, but as the song was going I think people forgot or were unsure and at the last minute decided to bail out which left him hanging.  ouch.  the cost of being the praise leader I guess.  🙂

    So hard to be a praise leader…I think there is a lot of material for this genre.

    At least no one was heard laughing. I think other installments of this series will include some of the singers unable to contain their laughter. But, you can hear an “uhh…” from T**Y in this track.

    I think we were trying to do the double stop… but settled for a one and a half stop… haha

  2. This is so funny…poor T__y.

  3. Wow, every praise leader can be inspired to keep praising despite mishaps.
