Church of Christ makes beautiful music

The Sun-Herald in Gulfport, Miss., reports:

OCEAN SPRINGS — Preacher Rodney Britt has a deep voice that resonates throughout the Church of Christ during Sunday morning worship services.
Britt enjoys his position, but at one time, he was a member of the Christian group Acappella, which sings without musical accompaniment.
Britt toured with Acappella for more than 20 years ago.
“I spent a lot of my life recording and traveling the country and the world,” Britt said. “I have a bass voice and that has been a real blessing. I sang full time for a number of years.”
Britt carried his love of a cappella to the Church of Christ. During morning worship services, church members sing together without musical instruments. They do not have a choir or chorus.
“We try to join our voices in praise to God at the same time,” Britt said. “In the early stages after Jesus died, churches didn’t have instruments of music. We sing in the old style of the church without any instruments.”

    I miss singing in a larger congregation but sometimes we still sound really good when we sit closer together in the fellowship room.

    What a joy to hear such magnificent voices joined together….don’t expect there will be any guitars or sound systems in heaven…just voices joined in praise to the Lord making melody in their hearts.

    Isn’t is awesome to be able to use your voice in such a humble, yet forceful, manner. And yes, singing with a larger congregation is a real blessing, too. Won’t it be an absolutely “speechless” experience to be able to join with ALL the saints as we gather around THE throne. Thanks, Rodney, for your example! (Out of 5… this is a 10)

    Rodney you rock. I remember hearing you in Salt lake city in 1991 or 1992. Then Again in Tulsa in 2002 or 2003.
