Shout to the....Idol?
Does anyone else find it ironic or just plain "weird" that American Idol closed their benefit show with Shout to the Lord? Also did you notice that they exchanged "Shepherd" for "Jesus?" I've heard them sing songs with the name of Jesus before so I'm not really sure why they decided to modify the song this time. Then as the show finished up, Ben Stiller led us off the stage with a tirade of profanities.
I guess the bigger question is - what in the world am I doing watching American Idol?
Good question. Wish I could answer it.
How do you feel about pop stars singing gospel songs? I can feel the old secular/sacred discussion coming on again. I guess if I was Darlene Zschech or Hillsong, I'd be glad to have this song of praise being shared with the world.
If you've got any comments on this one, I'd love to hear 'em.
