“It’s from Him” – Meet the ’Jackets

October 18th, 2011, Promulgated by b a

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…”
