Family-Life Sunday Night LIVE!

Last August, Kyle and I went up to the Martinsburg Singing in Martinsburg, PA. Great times...great people...great food. (You know me....I'm all about the food. :) While there, a rep with Family-Life TV came over to my stall (yes...stall. Our "booth" was in a cattle stall in a barn.) and wanted to know if I'd like to be on their Sunday evening program that goes out LIVE. Well, of course I said yes. :)

Fast forward to this past weekend when Kyle and I drove up to Kittanning, PA, to do the TV thing and a church. (Note to self: Make a note on the booking schedule when the time changes happen, and plan accordingly.) Sunday morning went GREAT at the Cornerstone AoG of Kittanning. What a great church! Such an incredibly sweet spirit about the place and the people. After the service, we had lunch with Pastor Richard and his wife, Carolyn, at Kings (think Shoney's...but w/o the buffet). After that, Kyle and I went back to our room and took a much needed nap. Thankfully, the TV show didn't start until 9 PM, so I didn't have to be there until 8 PM. Plenty of time for a great Sunday afternoon nap. :)

That evening, we went to the studios of Family-Live TV, and had a great time with Pastor David, Pastor Paul, and David's mom. I sang about 4 or 5 songs from my album, and also did a medley with David at the piano. I always love having the ability to go "off book" with folks. Just wish I had the money to have someone with me on a full-time basis!!

So, for those of you that missed it or were unable to be in Kittanning that night (ha ha!), you can watch the show ONLINE. :) Click on this link to go watch the show! :) (Note: The streaming media will ONLY work in Internet Explorer.)

Feel free to post your thoughts and comments. And yes, I love the jacket I'm wearing, too. :) And it's not "green". The correct color term is "ocean". ;-)

So, this is how they thank us?

Really, Idol? Eight years of viewership, and you "thank" the audience by giving Tatiana a spot in the Wild Card round? Really?? Oy.

I was very hopeful about this season's crop of singers, but they just keep choosing ones that are just kinda "eh". I don't see any Jennifer Hudson or Clay Aiken types. Truly, the only one that screamed "STAR" to me was Felicia Barton, and she's no more. But maybe that's a good thing for her.

Just please, please, PLEASE do NOT put through Tatiana. Lord help us if they do.
