Right. The drummer and I were both of the same mindset that it shouldn't go on, and when the MD asked us (before going into the meeting with the daughters, their father, and the Reverend), we gave her our thoughts.
I'm wondering how much the father had to do with keeping the original song in the program, because we (drummer and I) got the feeling that he was really pushing. And while I appreciate that you want to support your kids and allow them every chance of success, there are those times when they need to fail so you can help them learn from that and move on.
