Let me know what you think of the following videos, by  completely different style singers.

1) My friend Michelle (Consider Jesus) posted the Chris Tomlin song “Indescribable”.

From Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Tomlin

“Christopher Dwayne Tomlin (born May 4, 1972) is a Dove Award winning Christian worship leader and songwriter from Grand Saline, Texas, United States. He was awarded Male Vocalist at the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Gospel Music Awards, and was named Artist of the Year in 2007 and 2008.”

2) The next song is a live performance where David Bowie joins Queen for “Under Pressure”, something we can all relate to.

Queen’s frontman, Freddy Mercury, was one of the most dynamic performers in the history of Rock & Roll. He is also another of the all too common tragic stories of rock stars. Dying from the complications of AIDS at the age of 45.

Again from Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddy_Mercury

“Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara, on the island of Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania. His parents, Bomi and Jer Bulsara, were Parsis from the Gujarat region of the then province of Bombay Presidency in British India. The family surname is derived from the town of Bulsar (also known as Valsad) in southern Gujarat. As Parsis, Freddie and his family practiced the Zoroastrian religion.

At the age of 17, Mercury and his family fled from Zanzibar for safety reasons due to the 1964 Zanzibar Revolution. The family moved into a small house in Feltham, London.

In 2006, Time Asia named him as one of the most influential Asian heroes of the past 60 years, and he continues to be cited as one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2008, Rolling Stone ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers of all time.”

3) What is the best live music performance you can remember?  Feel free to choice more than one.

Back sometime in the late 1960’s I got to see Wilson Pickett at the Appllo, New York City.
