Even though only 5 singers standing on the stage, not a full team — they are so talented and seriously have angel’s voices! I enjoyed every minute of it. Not to mention that every beat they make is absolutely magical. So much tremendous music!!

One of my favorite song: Dry Bones; good for kids to learn body anatomy while praising the Lord at the same time (Ezekiel 37:1-2). Here is the lyric:

Ezekiel cried, “Dem dry bones!”
Ezekiel cried, “Dem dry bones!”
Ezekiel cried, “Dem dry bones!”
“Oh, hear the word of the Lord.”

The toe bone connected to the heel bone,
The heel bone connected to the foot bone,
The foot bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the head bone,
Oh, hear the word of the Lord!

Dem bones, dem bones gonna walk aroun’
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun’
Dem bones, dem bones, gonna walk aroun’
Oh, hear the word of the Lord.

The head bone connected to the neck bone,
The neck bone connected to the back bone,
The back bone connected to the thigh bone,
The thigh bone connected to the knee bone,
The knee bone connected to the leg bone,
The leg bone connected to the foot bone,
The foot bone connected to the heel bone,
The heel bone connected to the toe bone,
Oh, hear the word of the Lord!

    I second this opinion. I have never quite enjoyed a Christmas Concert as much as I did that night. Such consummate performers. First rate singers, great voices and experienced. Lovely songs of wide variety, covering popular crowd-pleasing ones to more subtle impressive ones: pop, jazz, gospel, and musical even. Each one with enough twists to be exciting, with no trace of cheap gimmicks.

    I loved it. My favorite numbers include the Sound of Music improv medley, the jazz standards, and the gospels. Almost all of them, basically. However, the whole set very effectively build up a crescendo to reach a climax of christmas songs that just about brought down the house!!! FANTASTIC.

    I loooovvveeed it.
