Wow, again!!! An unbelievable day of world-class sightseeing in Rome… The Colosseum, Circus Maximus, the Mammertine prison (where the apostle Paul was jailed and sentenced to death), and many other sights, concluding the day with an absolutely anointed concert to a great crowd at The Basilica of San Paolo Fuori Le Mura (the cathedral where St. Paul is buried. Off the The Vatican, Sistine Chapel etc. tomorrow!!!

Completed the day by singing for mass at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice and a mini flash mob in the Square! Great guides, drivers, Ministers of Music… To God be the glory for all the great things HE is doing!

Absolutely great night of worship at Carnegie Hall last night to a very engaging audience, with Michael Tait, Alicia Williamson-Garcia, Jeff Lawrence, Jason Breland and the awesome worship choirs from Concord Baptist and Grace Baptist in Knoxville Tennessee! We had some Church at Carnegie!!! Great to see Roger and Linda Breland as well! Topped off by going to Brooklyn Tabernacle this morning and having a free day in the Big Apple! The choir is alive and well in New York City!

What a day in the Big Apple! Our extraordinary Celebration Concert Tours staff welcomed 175 wonderful, good looking, highly intelligent folks from Knoxville as they flew in for Rocky Top in the Big Apple. So great to partner with wonderful friends Jason and Amy Breland, Jeff and Lisa Lawrence and their awesome Worship Choirs from Grace Baptist and Concord Baptist in Knoxville! Can’t wait for tomorrow’s concert at Carnegie with Michael Tate, Alicia Williamson – Garcia and both of these outstanding choirs! The choir is alive and well in NYC!
