Last night some friends and I went to Gungor's "Beautiful Things" concert at a church in Decatur! It really was wonderful! All members of the band are extremely talented. They played a great variety of instruments, sometimes in ways the instruments are not usually played, to bring forth hauntingly beautiful music! Michael Gungor was absolutely phenomenal on the guitar! At one point, as he played, you couldn't even see his fingers because he was strumming so fast! I didn't know a guitar could be made to do some of the things he did with it!
What a creative concert--difficult to explain what happened, but very beautiful and moving! The girl in the video below is Amena Brown. She spoke her poetry two different times during the concert, and was amazing, inspiring awe and worship with her words. She is only touring with Gungor through April, so she won't be at Elevate 2011, but I thought you would want to know about her. She has other videos that are just as moving on YouTube.
After hearing Gungor in concert, we are even more excited about Elevate 2011! What an amazing line-up of bands we have! I can hardly believe we were able to get such talented musicians and groups this year! You won't want to miss it, if you are at all able to come!
