Two Shouts in One Day
When it comes to worship, I've always been more of a silent crier than a shouter. But today, listening to Benita Washington's version of Walter Hawkins' "When the Battle Is Over," I had to shout. Jump up and down, dance for joy. My heart was full, and it just had to come out. (The song is on Washington's debut album, Hold On, which in my opinion was one of the best gospel albums of 2004).
Later today, a friend put Avalon's latest album, Stand. As we listened to "Orphan of God," we started singing the chorus loud and strong, tearing up all the way home.
Two shouts, two genres, two very different women, one day.
What songs make you shout?
