If Rance Allen was the Praise and Worship at your Church

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

If Rance Allen wasn’t a preacher/singer/pastor, I think he would be a wonderful comedian.  When asked about his favorite songs from The Live Experience project, he said without hesitation Holy One and his reasons were clear.  He responded, “this was my chance to do a real worship song, because no one usually calls me to lead Praise and Worship they want me to pick em up with Make Me Wanna Dance and rock and sock with Miracle Worker and Something about the name of Jesus.  This is the song I would do if I was the Praise and Worship leader.  With assistance from The Rance Allen Group and  new group Called II Worship, WORSHIP LEADERS TAKE NOTE: the results are effective.  AND the DVD gives us a tad bit more than what you find on the CD.  I think I’ll invite him to lead worship at my church real soon, and he can sing whatever he wants FIRST, then I’ll give him my list.
