Today was our Gospel Choir concert. It was the first time I actually performed with the choir, and I actually had a solo! Most Gospel music is sung in English, but my solo was actually part of the only Japanese song we sang. I was a nervous wreck, but had a great time and really enjoy being in this group. It is interesting to me the interest in Gospel music here in Japan. Over 90% of our choir are not Christians, but they really enjoy singing Gospel music. It is a wonderful opportunity for the director to share the meaning behind each song and share how these songs are really praises we sing to God!
Our next concert will be for Christmas. I’m thinking that will come a lot sooner than we think!
