I’m a Fan Friday: Twenty-One for 2021 – #10

East Point Lighthouse, Heislerville, NJ – September 2020

During my years in undergrad at Oklahoma Christian University, I sang in an a capella quartet with my dearest friends.

We called ourselves, Selah.

Doug Lalli, Evan Burkett, Todd Brooks, and I simply loved to sing, and we probably loved singing together the most.

We had a sound that connected us. It still does, even after all these years.

When I listen to this video of The Gesualdo Six, I imagine these fellows probably have a similar feeling about themselves. It sounds like it to me, anyway.

Todd passed away in the fall of 2013. I was away from home doing a production of “Spamalot” at the time I found out the news. I didn’t handle it well at all at the time. I’m still not sure if I totally have.

I found this group, The Gesualdo Six, on YouTube a while back and instantly thought of Selah–my friends, my band of brothers.

I hope this performance does your heart the good it always does mine.
