“Different” – Micah Tyler
This past Sunday night I was among 13,000+ brothers and sisters of a MASSIVE church family at the BB&T Center in Sunrise Florida. It was a wonderful 3½-hour show, as we praised and worshiped our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ in unison.
Elevation Worship kicked-off the show with a 7-song setlist including their 4 big radio hits of the past couple of years, “O Come To The Altar”, “Do It Again”, “Resurrecting”, and “Echo”. This is actually the 2ND time that I’ve sung along to “Do It Again” LIVE in concert. Mack Brock (former lead singer of Elevation Worship and cowriter of the song) performed it LIVE on his tour with Hillsong United this past May. Fun Fact: “Do It Again” is the # 1 smash out of 136 hits since this current “K-LOVE Era” of my chart began in February 2017.
Hillsong Worship were up next with an 8-song setlist. Of the 3 bands on the stage that night I was least familiar with their music, but I surely knew “Who You Say I Am” and “What A Beautiful Name” – both # 1 hits at Christian pop radio. They also performed “Mighty To Save” which I know more from Praise & Worship at my own local church than I do as a Hillsong Worship song.
Following an inspirational message leading-in to a Compassion International fundraising event and a brief intermission after that – Casting Crowns – led by Mark Hall – took to the stage, and they performed 10 hits in a row – nearly all of which I knew ! “Only Jesus” kicked-off their hitlist. It’s the longest-running # 1 smash (at 10 weeks) during this current era of my chart. “Thrive” (surprisingly) got a huge response. “Nobody (But Jesus)” was their encore song, and deservedly so. It’s the track that everyone was waiting for. All of my brothers and sisters were clapping along and singing together loudly and proudly. Chris Brown – lead singer of Elevation Worship – came out and performed the Matthew West part of the song, and he sounded just like Matthew West too. During the Megan Garrett part of the song all of the members of Elevation Worship and Hillsong Worship joined Casting Crowns together for a grande family finale.
As 13,000+ poured out of the arena into the South Florida darkness we were all singing bits and pieces of “Nobody (But Jesus)” – shining God’s light for all to see.
♫ ‘Cause I’m just a nobody – trying to tell everybody
All about Somebody – who saved my soul
Ever since You rescued me – You gave my heart a song to sing
I’m living for the world to see nobody but Jesus
I’m living for the world to see nobody but Jesus ♫
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend (starting in just 48 hours) – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
