On June 25, the youth choir from FBC Lewisville, Texas was in New Orleans doing an open-air performance of Lenny Kravitz’s song “Fly Away.” Guess who happened to be nearby, heard them singing, and came over and joined them? You guessed it. Lenny Kravitz himself. The whole thing was caught on video and posted to YouTube (see above). The Dallas Morning News has a report on the encounter.
This never happened on any of the church choir tours I went on in high school. But then again we weren’t singing Lenny Kravitz songs!
You didnt sing Lenny Kraivtz songs??? What on earth did you do?
Okay, four guys from our choir did actually sing one Lenny Kravitz song, but we never took it on tour. Two of those four now teach at Boyce College.
I still can’t get used to seeing Lenny without the dreds!!
That is TOTALLY awesome.
This is not going to help me as I try to not do a Youth Choir…especially they being so close. 🙂
I found my self sitting on the couch cheering for the video!
Cool. Comments from the kids were a little over the top, though…
“It was probably one of the most incredible things that’s ever happened to me,” said Michael Smeaton, choir member and lead guitar player.
“We just really believe that God was glorified in the whole thing. It came from nowhere,” Reed said. “It was just icing on the cake after a great week of ministry.”
Guess it was icing on the cake for Lenny fresh from the bar, too. ; )
