One of the fun things from years past at Avondale United Methodist Church has been the Christmas Music Extravaganza. Open to all, it has always been a place for people who normally don’t get a chance to perform in church to perform, and for those who do to perform pieces they wouldn’t normally perform as part of the regular services.
This year the Lightfoot family (aka, my family) got to open the Extravaganza with a medley of two numbers from the Muppet Christmas Carol. The first number, Bless Us All, is the Cratchet family singing over their meager, yet bounteous, Christmas dinner. The second Thankful Heart, is the reformed Scrooge’s affirmation to treat his fellow men well.
The next video wasn’t announced, so I’ll just call the group the AUMC ensemble, and put up their rendition of Stand By Me:
I will be updating more in tomorrow’s post, from the Extravaganza, as time permits me to edit and upload various segments from the Extravaganza.
