Or the Hill's if you don't mind, thank you...
This past weekend Jamie, Amelia, and I had the amazing pleasure of seeing Selah in concert and Angie Smith speak. Jamie and I have loved Selah from the beginning. They are so dynamic. I was heart broken when Nicole decided to leave to stike out on her own. She, her brother (Todd Smith) and Allan Hall all complimented each other so well. I actually told Jamie that I was not going to listen to them anymore...sigh. Then I heard the "girl" that took Nicole's place sing. I was wrong in thinking that it couldn't get any better. Amy Perry wowed me from the beginning. Each of the members of Selah have their own unique sound and those sounds combine to make one amazingly talented group. I love to hear them and could listen to their music all day.
Most people know that Angie and Todd lost a baby girl just after she was born. If you have not read Audrey's story you can read it here. Angie is a just as dynamic a writer and speaker as Selah is a musical group. I have heard her story and read it several times, but hearing it in person was...it was...just wow. She made me laugh. She made me cry. She made me stop and think. She took me back to similar moments that we have experienced.
We had the even more wonderful pleasure of meeting Angie and the members of Selah after the benefit was over. They are just everyday ordinary real people who have chosen to allow themselves be used of God. And my oh my, how God is using them. He has given them talents and stories. He has given them all the necessary tools to work for His kingdom. I enjoyed taking a few minutes to talk with each of them. It was a tremendous blessing and neat experience for Jamie and I both.
If you love great music like I do, then you should at the very least check out Selah's website. Take a listen. I promise you will like what you hear.
