At Seven Mile, we’re doing a sermon series called “The Jesus Biographies”, in which we’re exploring the ways that the OT is pointing to Jesus, the fulfillment of all the Scriptures. So out of that sermon series there was a song birthed out… here’s the live version. good stuff!
Free live album anyone? Phil Wickham is offering his fans a free live recording of some great old and new worship songs. Like I always say, if it’s free, give me three!
With that said, Christian music just hasn’t been the same. It’s rare to find music that has both the lethal combination of Godly lyrics coupled with original music. Recent CCM albums I’ve heard are either blatant wanna-be’s of secular bands or the “same old stuff”. Maybe it’s just ’cause I’m not listening to the right people. If anyone has suggestions, lay it on me. I want some Godly music that will not only speak the truth of the Gospel, but inspire me musically. Is that too much to ask? 🙂
Any ukulele fans out there? This guy’s sick.

It’s getting tougher to predict who’s gonna get booted each week! But I think the creme is rising to the top… and it’s Josiah Leming! I’m not sure if it’s just rumors or if it’s of substance, but supposedly he’s signed a record deal with Warner Bros.? Pretty crazy yo. I was a huge fan… I hope he does well. Anyways…here’s this week’s recap:
Best of the Week: David Cook with Billie Jean (can i just say how this was probably one of my favorite performances in the last few years… sick stuff)
Worst of the Week: Carly Smithson. She’s got the voice, but losing her appeal.
Surprise of the Week: Michael Johns with his Queen medley. In the immortal words of one Lil’ Mama, “That was hot!”
Voted Out: Chikezie. dang you Kristy Lee!
Random Notes: Is anyone else sick of the crowd? They boo obnoxiously (let them do what they’re paid to do, judge) and they sway to the music in an awkward rhythm, trying to clap along when it’s totally unnecessary. I’ve began to close my eyes when they zoom out to the crowd.
Next Week’s Predicted Loser: Syesha (record: 0/2)
Beatles, again?! C’mon, I love the Beatles, but it seemed a little redundant. I loved last week, because I always felt like a Beatles themed show would be sick. But too much of a good thing is never good
Best of the Week: David Cook with Day Tripper
Worst of the Week: “Cooliosis”, the word Randy Jackson made up. He’s ridiculous.
Surprise of the Week: Jason Castro without a guitar? I thought he’d go through the whole competition with one. He proved me wrong, but makes me a bigger fan every show.
Voted Out: Amanda Overmyer, I thought she’d make it at least one or two more weeks. But I definitely didn’t think she’d last this far.
Random Notes: Does anyone remember Josiah from Hollywood week? I wonder how we would’ve fared in this competition if he were let in. I was a huge fan.
Next Week’s Predicted Loser: Kristy Lee Cook (record: 0/1)
