Oh Happy Day! This Man Gets Into The Spirit!
Recently, Tom and I went to Howard Theater's (in DC) Gospel Brunch with the Harlem Choir performing. Toward the end of the program, the famous Gospel group began to sing "Oh Happy Day" and invited all those who knew the words to sing with them on stage. Although he gets stage fright, Tom jumped at the change to sing what is one of his favorite spirituals.
He thought he was just going to sing along with the chorus.
To his (and my) surprise, the acclaimed performers asked him to center stage and handed him the mic!
Almost like a scene in a movie, Tom starts out slowly (and nervously). But he gets into it and wham, just as the lead singer reaches for the mic, Tom let's lose and gets the whole audience into it! It was such an incredible and spiritual moment.
My husband is a star--but I always knew it!
