The Sunday night concert with Allison Speer was a
tremendous worship experience. Allison really connected
with us, and we found her so easy to love. After the concert
she expressed to me that she loved the unusually warm
spirit of our church. For more than twenty years I have
enjoyed Allison’s great voice and the way she puts her whole
heart into every song. My greatest thrill Sunday night was
that from the very first song our youth were exhuberant as
they clapped and gave her a standing ovation. That excitement
carried over to just about everyone because it was
evident that she is so anointed of the Lord as she sings.
I believe we all appreciated that at key points in the concert
Allison reached out to the youth and spoke directly to them.
After the concert everyone saw what I had already seen in
Allison. She is extremely friendly and just plain real. As the
people packed around her she never got in a hurry, but stayed
until the last person left. During that time, groups of our youth
enjoyed visiting with her. Don’t try to tell me youth don’t like the
kind of music we had last night. Thank you Lord for being so good to us!
