Voices only: Give Thanks
Welcome to Voices only. This weekly online feature highlights the…
Just in time for VOW (and about 24 hours before I get in line to see “The Force Awakens“), Jimmy Fallon gives fans of “Star Wars” (and “The Brady Bunch”) basically the GREATEST CHRISTMAS GIFT EVER!
Here’s Jimmy, his band The Roots and the cast of the latest “Star Wars” installment doing an a cappella rendition of the classic films’ theme by John Williams. I particularly like Gwendoline Christie’s (Captain Phasma’s) nod to Mrs. Brady, inspecting her “troops.”
And the cameos by Harrison Ford, R2-D2, BB-8 and yes, even Admiral “IT’S A TRAP” Ackbar himself make this a fanboy’s dream video.
In case you missed it, check out my recent post on theology and “Star Wars,” where I discuss the transformation of Han Solo’s character from Force “atheist” to true believer.
Oh, and BB-8 fans will enjoy this coverage of two Oklahoma Christian University grads who work for Sphero, the company behind the BB-8 app-enabled droid — one of the season’s most popular gifts.
Finally, here’s a Christmas present from “Black Diamond” himself, Theron Denson, a Neil Diamond tribute artist and member of the Riverwood Church of Christ in Nashville, Tenn. (Read our recent profile of Denson.)
Be mesmerized by his amazing voice as he sings “Silent Night” — and by his incredibly sparkly shirt.
This time of year can be so warm, even with the cold outside.Here now, a Black Neil Diamond Tribute Singer gift, which I hope makes it even warmer. Yours certainly have kept me warm this year and for that, my thanks along with wishes of…Season’s Greetings tofamily,friends, fans & Diamondheads alike, everywhere around the world!
