Last Thursday night Lori and I went to the Broadmoor Arena to a concert. The last time we went to a concert at that venue was to see Elton John. I wrote about it, and it was fantastic.

It would be difficult to have a sharper contrast to Sir Eltonís concert than the one we went to last Thursday. The warm up group was called Crowder and the headliner was Mercy Me. Christian Rock, and it was fantastic.

We had heard David Crowder before and, in all honesty, he was the primary draw for our cost of admission. I guess Christian Rock is the best description but he weaves in rap, hard rock, folk songs and as he calls most of it 'church songs'. Itís not my dadís church music.

The only thing I knew about Mercy Me was their major hit ďI Can Only ImagineĒ. The subsequent movie was heartwarming and poignant. I think we have a CD of Christmas hits by them but it isnít one of my favorites.

David Crowder began his band when the Texarkana born musician realized that almost half of the students at Baylor University, a Christian University, werenít attending church. So he started University Baptist Church in Waco, TX and eventually began writing music to use in the church he was pastoring. He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
