“It’s from Him” – Meet the ’Jackets

October 18th, 2011, Promulgated by Ben Anderson

I’m not endorsing this show or reality TV, but for those who have been following the University of Rochester’s YellowJackets on NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, you might find this quote interesting from Jamal (the link doesn’t take you directly to his page – you have to click his image at the bottom – he’s the top right):

What does it feel like when you sing?

When I sing I feel indestructible with a huge sense of humility. I always relate my singing to my beliefs and I truly believe that I am just a vessel that God is working through. Before I sing, I always pray that he will use me to not entertain people but to move them in a way that allows them to see how he can bless people that live for him. I believe that I have a gift, but I want the world to know that is not from me or a teacher, it’s from Him.

    I heard a quote once, unfortunately I don’t remeber who said it, but it went something like this~
    “Creativity is God’s gift to us, how we use it is our gift to God.”
    Sounds like this young man understands this better than most!! 🙂

    That’s wonderful that Jamal acknowledges that his gift is from God and that he is a vessel that God works through to touch other people while at the same time he is being uplifted in the Lord. He is modeling the Magnificat – “My soul magnifies the Lord…”
