It Made Me Cry

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

The computer I've been working on for two weeks didn't make me cry but when I tested out the sound card with a certain YouTube video it made me cry.

I thought I'd look for Rock-N-Roll Christmas songs and pull up something familiar like last years surprise (to me) by Si Cranstoun.

I decided to skip by "the usual" when I saw Metal Christmas 2020. I clicked on it and most of it I could do without even though I am a Heavy Metal Fan all the back to the Country Joe & the Fish days of the 60's.

I don't keep up with Rock and rarely look for anything new so I know nothing about the band Seven Spires or their singer Adrienne Cowan but HOLY COW this little girl can sing beautifully while shouting. I've never seen anything so amazing, it literally made me cry, not because she is so good but because God is so good to give us such amazing talents.

Full Disclosure: When I see people do extraordinary things I recognize it as a gift from God. The artist, the athlete, the physician may be full of themselves and they may believe it's all them but they could have just as easily been born brain dead. God gives the gift.

Back on track: I believe you can appreciate this even if you don't like heavy metal music. Not only is the singer gifted but the guitarist is one of the fastest guitarists I've ever seen (Frank Zappa will always be #1 for me).

A listening tip: The singing starts out a bit slow but becomes absolutely mesmerizing about two minutes in. I hope you enjoy it.

O Holy Night by Adrienne Cowan & Seven Spires

I don't recognize either group but the dancers in the first video reminded me of an over powered washer.  Swings like that would be dangerous on a front porch

Thank you Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker and I should clarify that what I like, or appreciate, are talented guitarists and the best are in Heavy Metal and (believe it or not) in Country Western. Most of the heavy metal singers are mundane but on occassion a girl like this or Janis Joplin comes along.

Ed Silva thanks for making me laugh this late afternoon. I have to admit the dancing was the initial motivation to listen to that one but Ci does have an amazing voice that makes me want to jump in and dance with the gang as well.

Get your Festive on Bob!

I agree with your thoughts on the great gifts from God. My dad had the gift - a Tenor (got his "A" at Julliard, even) and would teach voice lessons in our home. Most of his students had Heart but few really had the Gift. Wish he had a student or two like Sissel.

Merry Christmas and Shalom!

It would have been great for your dad to have had a student like Sissel Alexander- Slocum . For those who are unfamiliar with her here is a link.

Bob when you say heavy metal I think of US ARMY Tanks, US ARMY Infantry  fighting vehicles.... but not music... to me music is Classical and soft... so yes if I heard something like this I would change my mind:)Endre

Good morning Endre Barath, Jr. . I think tanks and and Infantry is what they had in mind when they came up with the term Heavy Metal because it just rolls right over you... ready or not!

I had not heard it before either Will Hamm and evidently it was only released this year but I think I will revisit it for many years to come. Those kids really have a gift.

Those guitarists are awesome Mike Frazier . This is just one of those cases where everything came together even though this group was playing completely out of their normal choice of music.
